“The new Samsung Galaxy Note7 is the ultimate multi-tasking smartphone.
It can help people simplify and enhance their lives and business owners
and workers complete daily tasks and activities more efficiently, no
matter where they are,” said Joe Settimi, vice president of marketing
for U.S. Cellular. “Our high-quality network keeps you covered across
the country in large and small cities and rural communities, so you can
feel confident that you will have a strong signal when and where you
need it.”

The Samsung Galaxy Note7 introduces the future of smartphone security
with its revolutionary iris scanning technology. Users can conveniently
unlock their smartphone with a look and help ensure that the important
data on their device is kept secure. The Galaxy Note7 also sets a new
standard for large screen devices, improving upon the most popular
features of previous Note smartphones, including a more powerful and
precise S Pen that replicates the accuracy of a real pen, IP68 water
resistance2, a 5.7 inch QHD dual-edge Super AMOLED display,
and a long-lasting battery3 and 64 GB of storage4
right out of the box. The Galaxy Note 7 also features the advanced
camera introduced on the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge, featuring
dual-pixel technology, wide aperture and fast autofocus, all working
together to create sharp, bright photos, even in low-light environments.

Consumers and businesses who purchase the Note7 from U.S. Cellular can
choose the best monthly payment option to meet their needs – from 20, 24
or 30 monthly payments – and pay as little as $27.80 per month.
Customers can upgrade their device in as little as 12 months if they
trade it in for any new device, and they can also choose to pay off the
full balance of their device anytime they want. In addition, customers
who port their number from another carrier and trade in their device –
even one with a cracked screen – can receive an unlimited buy-out of
their current contract after they submit their final bill from their
carrier.
