The One V is continuing to blaze across the US carrier trail - first, Virgin Mobile began selling the device for $200 prepaid, and now US Cellular has joined the fray.
Available now online, US Cellular's One V will cost $129.99 after one of those wonderful $100 mail-in rebates. Unfortunately, if you're new to US Cellular, you'll have to sign a two-year contract upon purchasing the device; if you're an existing customer, it doesn't appear you'll have to sign anything of the sort. If for some reason you'd prefer to get the handset from a brick-and-mortar location, you'll have to wait till July 6th.
