Full Answer

U.S. Cellular offers Simple Connect plans as its prepaid cellular service. With these plans, the company requires no credit check. Subscribers have the option of bringing many of their own devices that work on the U.S. Cellular network or purchasing a new device for beginning their service.

If U.S. cellular customers prefer pay-per-use, they have the option of paying a small fee for each call or outgoing text. Incoming texts are free. For subscribers who use the instant refill option for funding their phone, device insurance is available to protect the device from damage, theft or loss.

When it is time to add more money to the subscriber's account, he has the option of paying in cash at a U.S. Cellular store or using a credit card from his phone. The company offers options for automatic autofill, so subscribers have the assurance they never run out of minutes. There is a minimum for the amount the subscriber can add to his account.
