U.S. Cellular offering prepaid Androids

U.S. Cellular offering new prepaid plans for smartphones.

U.S. Cellular will start offering Android smartphones for its prepaid customers tomorrow, April 15. Handsets include the LG Optimus U and the LG Apex, which cost around $199.99 and $249.99 respectively. While the initial cost might be high, the monthly plans are quite affordable. U.S. Cellular prepaid customers can get 450 minutes, unlimited messaging, and 2GB of data for $60 a month, or unlimited talk and text plus 2GB of data for $70 a month.

If you would rather go without the data plan, you can opt for just the unlimited minutes and messages for $50 a month. Alternately, if you would rather have just the 2GB of data, you can pay $50 a month for that.
