Moto G available on US Cellular for $99, no contract required

The Moto G has been available in the US for over a month now and US Cellular has finally decided to offer the smartphone to its customers. The carrier has made the handset available for just $99 which is the same amount being asked by Verizon.

US Cellular is selling the smartphone without any contract, on a prepaid connection. The original price is listed as $189.99, but a discount of $90 is being applied for new customers. You’ll be able to pick up the Moto G with one of the carrier’s No Contract plans that offer unlimited text, data and calling for as low as $50 a month. The only downside here is that the device is a CDMA variant and it cannot be used on other providers.
