Send email to a US Cellular cell phone.

You may be charged for every text message you send from your cell phone to a US Cellular phone number. This can get expensive, especially if you are having a long conversation with the US Cellular customer via text messages. One way to avoid these fees is to send text messages to the cell phone via email. Sending messages from your email account to a US Cellular number is free of charge and allows you to receive responses from that person.
