Cellular South, the largest privately owned wireless carrier in the U.S., is making it easier than ever for wireless users to fall in love with Android-powered devices this Valentine’s Day by offering some early special deals on some of the company’s most popular smartphones.
Valentine’s Day promotions starting today include half off the HTC Desire, 75 percent off the HTC Wildfire and free activation for customers who purchase two lines or more. Additionally, any iPhone users can visit one of Cellular South’s retail locations between now and Valentine’s Day and trade-in their iPhone for $199 – good to use towards the purchase and activation of any new Cellular South device or accessory.
“Our robust line-up of six Android-powered smartphones offers something for everyone, including price-points that will definitely put the ‘romance’ back into owning a smartphone,” said Sherry Stegall, senior vice president for sales and customer operations at Cellular South. “Our Valentine’s Day offerings will make it easier and more affordable than ever for consumers to experience Android smartphone ownership and gain access to the very best apps on the Android Market.”
Cellular South’s Discover Apps
To make the Android ownership experience even better, Cellular South is making its highly-touted Discover Apps tool available on each of its Android devices. Changing the way smartphone users navigate the overwhelming world of wireless applications, Cellular South’s Discover Apps is a unique tool that gives consumers easy and quick access to the very best Android apps available today.
“It is our mission to become the ultimate matchmakers this Valentine’s Day by helping our customers find the right apps for them. That’s why we’ve created Discover Apps, which is designed to help customers find the best apps for their individual interests,” Stegall said.
Samsung Galaxy S and Cellular South’s Android Line-Up
In addition to the savings on the HTC Desire and HTC Wildfire, Cellular South is offering its premier Android-powered smartphone, the Samsung Galaxy S, for only $199.99 (with a $50 mail-in reward card). With its Super AMOLED cinema quality touchscreen technology with SWYPE, super fast processor, integrated social networking and sleek design, the Samsung Galaxy S offers one of the best Android experiences available today.
To kick off the Valentine’s season, Cellular South will offer the following Android devices all for under $100 (with a $50 mail-in reward card):
* HTC Desire ($74.99) – HD video recording 720p, Snapdragon processor, 5 MP camera

Best Plans for Smartphones
The best Android-powered devices are just one part of the total ownership experience offered at Cellular South. The company’s smartphone flat-rate plan is the industry’s most robust and affordable smartphone plan and includes flat-rate talk, text, Web, and e-mail for just $79.99, compared to $119 per month for the same services from AT&T or Verizon. The plan from Cellular South also includes a second line, including all of the same unlimited services, for just $39.99. Customers can get two smartphone flat-rate plans for the price of only one from AT&T or Verizon with equivalent unlimited services.
“For years we’ve been pricing our wireless plans and services in a way that wireless users don’t have to manage minutes or usage. Wireless users should not have to think before they press send, access their data services or worry about surprise bills that may come after,” said Stegall. “Cellular South customers don’t have to worry about calling circles, rollover minutes, roaming networks, days of the week or the time of day. All our customers need to think about is who or what app or website they want to connect to next.”
Cellular South knows that a smartphone is only as good as the network that supports it and Cellular South has that covered as well. In fact, the company has one of the most advanced and reliable high-speed wireless networks in the nation and recently announced plans for deploying a fourth generation (4G) mobile broadband network using Long Term Evolution (LTE) technology.
