iPhone with U.S Cellular?

Is there any way you can get an iPhone to work with US Cellular? That is my plan right now and I really want to get an iPhone!

well it would answer your question if you knew what to look for. Does US mobile take a sim card like in the video? In other words, does it run on a gsm network? If so, then it should work.

US Cellular is CDMA based...iPhone is GSM!

iphone and US Cellular

Although I do not have an answer to whether iphone can be used with U.S. Cellular, I also have hesitated buying an iphone because of my satisfaction with U.S. Cellular.

I work for U.S. Cellular in Missouri and I know for a fact it won't work. U.S. Celluar is CDMA like Verizon and even if you could get the software to run on the network, you wouldn't be able to activate it since our computer system would reject the Serial Number.

Hello, Since you work for USCellular, is there a comparable phone to the IPhone that US Cellular carries currently?
thank you for your reply.

Probably

the iPhone 4 and 4S work on Verizon now and it is a CDMA network, so if you unlock a Version iPhone it should work? but US Cellular doesnt use SD cards so you'd have to take it to them to activate and I don't know if theyd activate it for you like that.
