In November 2012, U.S. Cellular announced that it had reached an agreement to sell its Chicago, St. Louis, central Illinois and three other Midwest markets to Sprint Nextel Corp.
The Sprint sale closed on May 17, 2013. If your U.S. Cellular account was part of the transaction, you were sent a notification letter. Sprint is following up with affected customers to let them know when they will shut down the U.S. Cellular network in their area. For more information, please contact Sprint at 800-216-7023 or visit sprint.com/uscellular.
For the rest of our customers, there are no changes and they will continue to enjoy the great service they have come to expect from U.S. Cellular and our associates.
