US Cellular Offering Battery Swaps For Free!

A rather interesting service is being offered up to US Cellular customers - something that stands out to me as well I'm sure to others as being a sign of great customer service. US Cellular has announced that if you purchased your device in the last 18 months and you happen to be suffering from a dead battery while on the go, you can swing by any US Cellular shop and swap your dead one for a freshly charged one right then and there. This awesome service starts today at US Cellular locations and here is what they had to say about it:

“Our Battery Swap program is perfect for people who depend on their wireless devices as their lifelines, such as business people, parents, not to mention heavy users who drain their battery daily,” said Jay Ellison, executive vice president and COO of U.S. Cellular. “We’re offering this service to help our customers stay connected.”

Good on ya US Cellular, this is a service I could have really used on numerous occasions. The only question now is will the big boys follow the lead and offer something similar? Even the most loyal of BlackBerry addicts will run out of "juice" at some point in time and not have a spare handy, trust me I know. Until this is something offered carrier wide you can always load up on batteries at
