Who else is ready to say goodbye to their horrible cell phone carrier and say hello to better?
Count me in!
My current phone and service is pretty laughable. My husband and I place bets on how soon a call will drop once we've answered and it generally happens in less than a minute. The kicker? We receive no service in our area, even though we have full bars, and we even have Wi-Fi calling and still nothing. I'm famous for calling my mom, carrying on a conversation, and then realizing at the end of my story that she didn't
hear a word I said because my phone kept cutting out.
So why haven't I switched carriers yet? I guess I just figured I didn't have the time to sit down and find a carrier that actually would work in my area. I'm not the only one who has had these thoughts cross their mind. Take a look at these survey results:
Out of the 1,208 participants polled across four regions of the country, 56 percent of the respondents admitted to being unhappy with their carrier over the past year but only 35 percent
of all respondents have ever broken up with their provider.
In spite of this overall dissatisfaction, respondents are hesitant to call it quits. More than one-third of respondents say they stick with their current provider because they believe all carriers are the same, it is too much trouble to switch carriers, or they don’t want to sign a new contract.
A study conducted by U.S. Cellular indicates that 43 percent of individuals are in the 'seven year itch' phase with their wireless provider, noting they are comfortable but suspect they are missing out on something better.
So why haven't I switched carriers yet? I guess I just figured I didn't have the time to sit down and find a carrier that actually would work in my area. It's time though... especially because my cell phone is my primary phone and it's just not cutting it when I have to worry about my son's school calling, reminder calls for appointments, and not to mention, emergency phone calls! A phone that doesn't get service is certainly not going to help me in any of those situations.
So, it's time to say, "Goodbye Neglect, Hello Better!"
U.S. Cellular believes people deserve better and want to make your life easier, and to make it easier, they offer unique benefits such as the industry’s only points-based rewards program, no contract after the first contract ends, free incoming calls and texts, free Overage Protection and free Battery Swap for your device.
Take some time to look over their plans and lets say goodbye to our horrible service together and
hello to U.S. Cellular!
