    US Cellular Corporate information


    U.S. Cellular was created in 1983 as a subsidiary of Telephone and Data Systems (TDS), Inc., which still owns an 84 percent stake.

    U.S Cellular features free unlimited incoming calls, allowing users to receive calls without charge. In addition, they offer unlimited incoming text, picture, and video messages.[2]
