If you're looking for an inexpensive smartphone with U.S. Cellular and you aren't particular about speed or high-end specs, the Huawei Ascend Y's inexpensive price tag will get you in the door.

If you're looking for an inexpensive smartphone with U.S. Cellular and you aren't particular about speed or high-end specs, the Huawei Ascend Y's inexpensive price tag will get you in the door. Buy it for a penny if you live in a 3G zone and plan to use the handset for basic e-mail, browsing, and texting.

However, if you have a little more disposable cash, shop around on U.S. Cellular and other networks. With specials, you can find a better phone with a comparable price, and maybe one that has a better camera, more hardware features, and a faster processor.

You can not see anything in the screen specially in the car. Also mine has a hidden sim card so I can not change phones. I bought it from page Plus cellular.

I've had this phone for a month now and I like it. I bought it for $99 and it's worth it. It's a basic 3G phone and has a nice processor. This phone has excellent battery life as long as you don't stay on the internet for too long, because that will drain the battery very fast. My only complaint is that the phone as little internal storage, so make sure you have at least a 8GB memory SD card. Overall it's a great phone and I would recommend it to anyone who wants just a basic smartphone.
