With details similar to what we saw coming from AT&T, US Cellular has become the latest US carrier to announce pre-orders for the Samsung Galaxy S5. US Cellular will have the Galaxy S5, as well as the Gear 2, Gear 2 Neo and Gear Fit. The US Cellular Galaxy S5 pre-orders begin tomorrow, March 21st, with in-store availability beginning on April 11th.

US Cellular will have the Galaxy S5 available in Charcoal Black and Shimmery White. The price will be $199.99 on a two-year agreement, and those who pre-order the device online will get a Google Play Store credit. Specifically, a $50 Google Play Store credit. In regards to the wearables, those look to be coming on April 11th.


There was no mention of pricing, or pre-orders for the Gear 2, Gear 2 Neo or Gear Fit. Instead, US Cellular mentioned how the Galaxy S5 “will be available in stores for purchase on April 11 along with the Samsung Gear 2, Samsung Gear 2 Neo and Samsung Gear Fit.”

One difference between the US Cellular and AT&T announcements — the former (US Cellular) will be offering an early look at the Galaxy S5 (at five select stores). This will begin on March 24th and the store locations are all in the Cedar Rapids, Iowa and Milwaukee and Madison, Wisconsin areas.
