it depends on the phone you want to buy. your phone must be capatible with US Cellulars technology. This information can generally be found on the carriers website. US Cellular uses CDMA, so your phone needs to support CDMA. A GSM phone will not work on US Cellulars network.

You can check with AT&T, T-mobile, or even Boost mobile for a data package for an unlocked Samsung Galaxy 3 phone from US Cellular.

Since 7/15/03, US Cellular will NOT activate a phone unless it is US Cellular-sourced. That merely means that it was originally sold by US Cellular or an authorized agent. It does NOT mean you have to buy the phone from a US Cellular store. You CAN buy a phone from a friend, eBay, or wherever, but it MUST be US Cellular-branded. Also, phones can be direct-purchased from some manufacturer's, most notably Motorola. They will ask you who you're carrier is, and ship the phone US Cellular-branded. These phones can be activated.

No reason why not - so long as the handset comes 'unlocked' from any network.

US Cellular uses CDMA technology, not GSM, so, their phones do not use SIM cards.
