Despite the fact that the Nexus 6 joined the several carrier’s list of offerings few weeks ago, it is still hard to be found online since it’s almost always sold out. Even Google Play Store suffers from constant lack of the stock of the phone, making customers go to the carriers. Naturally, the most popular US service providers like AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile offer multiplicity of smartphones but sadly the Nexus 6 is available only in the Midnight Blue. Now the US Cellular joins the club of Nexus 6’s distributors, giving you chance to get the device in two color options: Midnight Blue and Cloud White, and two capacity variants: 32GB and 64GB.
Motorola Nexus 6 for US Cellular
You may ask what’s the big deal about the Motorola Nexus 6 joining another carrier’s portfolio? Definitely, there is a deal – the price. Since the 32GB phone at AT&T and Sprint costs today $249.99 with two-year service agreement, US Cellular took another approach and sells the phone $50 cheaper. The US Cellular version of the Nexus can be yours for $199 for 32GB and $249 for 64GB. Of course, both prices come with a two-year contract with the carrier.
If for some reason you don’t want to attach yourself to a long-term commitment, you can purchase the Nexus 6 without contract for $660 (32GB option) or $730 (64 GB version), but at this point another question pops out, does the phone we buy is an factory unlocked model? Well, this is still something the carrier keeps mum about. How the situation looks like in other carriers? Though AT&T locked their Nexus 6 handsets, Sprint and T-Mobile sold their phones unlocked just like those bought directly from the manufacturer’s or Google Play.
The third purchase option at US Cellular includes monthly installments system, which means that though being able to get the phone at zero upfront, you will have to pay $30 every month. Other that that, as we mentioned earlier, the US Cellular is offering the Nexus 6 in both color options, the Midnight Blue and Cloud White, something no other carrier is doing.
Perhaps US Cellular isn’t the US most frequently chosen carrier, but its recent offer on the Nexus 6 may help it win masses of new customers, especially when stores like Google Play don’t have the slate in their daily offer.
