Holiday Accessories Gift Guide
Mobile accessories are popular as they continue to simplify and enhance your life. When paired with a smartphone, such as the iPhone 7 or Samsung Galaxy S7, it is easier to stay fit and listen to music. Bluetooth accessories and Square Care readers also make it simple to do business.
While wireless accessories, such as cases, chargers and skins are still important to have, these days accessories can fly, entertain and even ensure safety. Wireless devices mean more than just a call or text. This new wave of accessories has created entertainment and organizational hubs.
A recent U.S. Cellular survey indicated that 94 percent of smartphone owners used their device to keep themselves entertained, while 49 percent utilized smart home technology or connected home devices.
U.S. Cellular is ready to help shoppers find the best wireless accessory gifts for friends and families during the holidays. I encourage you to visit a U.S. Cellular store and check out the hundreds of different accessories that they offer.
