You can return or exchange your device or accessory within 15 days. To avoid any additional charges, make sure to review the info on our Returns & Exchanges page. When returning, credit is applied to the UScellular account or to the original payment method.** A small $35 restocking fee per item applies.

Your device should be in like-new condition with original packaging, battery, SIM card, chargers, cables, other components and manuals. To avoid being charged the full price, make sure:

  • Your device is deleted from any cloud accounts

Your accessory should be in like-new condition, i.e., perfect working condition with no physical, cosmetic and/or liquid damage. Please include all original packaging, components and manuals with your return. Please note: Liquid screen protectors are not eligible for return or exchange once the packaging has been opened.

If your device was mailed to you (e.g. orders online or over the phone), use the pre-paid, pre-addressed return slip included with your package to send it back within 15 days of your activation date. You can also visit us in-store to return.

Our return policy only covers devices, equipment and accessories purchased through UScellular in-store, online or over the phone. Does not apply to merchandise purchased used or on clearance or to opened liquid screen protectors.
