U.S. Cellular and Alltel have announced U Prepaid, a new no contract service that will be available in almost 500 Walmart stores across 18 states. The new service is said to offer "simplified, easy-to-understand service plan choices." U Prepaid will run on either U.S. Cellular's network or Alltel's network, depending on region. Four devices have been announced to go along with the launch of U Prepaid, including the Samsung Repp smartphone, Samsung Chrono, LG Attune/Exchange, and LG Saber. The plans will offer data and text package options in addition to voice and can work nationwide, but other details, like cost, have yet to be announced. U Prepaid is expected to launch in May.source: U.S. Cellular
