Amazon is home to dozens and dozens of smartphones, though until now shoppers were only able to buy contract phones from AT&T, Sprint or Verizon and no-contract phones from Boost, Virgin, AT&T, T-Mobile and a few other smaller brands. Now, U.S. Cellular is entering the no-contract game. The carrier announced Tuesday that its prepaid devices will soon be available from Amazon.
The first phones to launch include the LG Splendor, the Motorola Defy XT, the Alcatel Shockwave, the ZTE Director, the Huawei Ascend II, the Samsung Freeform 5, the Kyocera Dura Pro, the LG Freedom and the LG Envoy II. Prices will range from $29.99 for one of the firm’s non-smartphones all the way up to $229.99. All prices include the full payment of the device and do not require a contract. You can then use the phone on one of U.S. Cellular’s various plans, including unlimited voice and text with 2GB of data for $65 per month, or as low as $10 per month for pay-as-you-go minutes.
Once you’ve purchased a device from Amazon and it has arrived, you can then activate it by calling U.S. Cellular from the phone 855-578-5352.
