U.S. Cellular Brings Samsung SCH-LC11 Hotspot into its 4G LTE Fold

  • MORE

U.S. Cellular's roster of 4G gadgets is growing. Today the company added the Samsung SCH-LC11 mobile hotspot to its list of available LTE gadgets. Previously a Verizon exclusive, the SCH-LC11 offers hot-switching from 3G to 4G networks, Wi-Fi support for up to 5 mobile devices at a time, and comes with a bevy of monthly data plans. The important question, however, is where can you use this pocket-friendly, 2.7-ounce device with blazing fast LTE speeds?

Right now, U.S. Cellular 4G  LTE networks include "select cities in Wisconsin, Maine, Iowa, North Carolina, Oklahoma, and Texas", with additional rollouts for Illinois, Maryland, Missouri, New Hampshire, Oregon, Tennessee, Washington, Virginia, and West Virginia planned in the second half of this year. 

Lucky residents of those locales will have the option of paying for 2GB, 5GB, or 10GB of data at $25, $50, or $90 every 30 days. By comparison, Verizon's data plans span two options: 5GB for $50/month and 10GB for $80/month. That gives deal hunters the option to save $10 bucks a month on a 10GB plan. Not to mention, Verizon's 4G LTE blanket spreads farther and wider than that of U.S. Cellular.  On the other hand, the smaller carrier's plans include a wallet friendly 2GB option for less than $30 a month. Either way, it's great to have more product choices for your 4G needs.

    I have had US Cellular phone for many years. When they introduced the HotSpot, I signed up. What a mistake. The US Cellular agent who initiated my contract wrote down the wrong billing address so I was shut off. Then I was billed for 10 GB, 8 GBs over my limit. A lot for just checking e-mail. The customer rep called me a liar, but admitted she had no way of checking internet use. Next, I paid my bill on time, but the idiot agent applied the money to my cell phone account. Although I have my receipt, US Cellular has refused to subtract the $5 late fee. Checking my usage on their site is a waste of time. I had only used a fraction of my 2 gig plan when I got a text message stating I used 75% of my 2 gigs!!!! Every month there is something messed up. I have since filed for arbitration. Every month I have to deal with US Cell idiots. The rep will say he fixed the problem, only to repeat it again next month. The battery life is about 20 minutes. Yes I had it replaced.
