BlackBerry®

As part of our commitment to provide you with the highest level of service, we are alerting you to important news affecting your UScellular BlackBerry® equipment. Blackberry has informed us that it is ending the support of all Blackberry devices as of January 4, 2022. Regrettably, this means that your BlackBerry® will no longer work after that date and you will need to switch to a new device no later than January 3rd, 2022 to continue service.

The good news is that we have many replacement devices for you to choose from. Starting today until November 11, 2021, you can get $400 off any phone, including the newest Apple and Samsung smartphone devices. Not only that, when you get your new device you will also get $10 off your monthly Plan for one entire year! Just visit any UScellular store or call 1-800-455-8521. Remember, this discount offer is available only through November 11, 2021. If you’d like additional information about the discontinuation of your BlackBerry®, please visit BlackBerry®’s official website by clicking this link: https://www.blackberry.com/us/en/support/devices/end-of-life.
