Giving away an old smartphone
HUGSEA22
Newbie

My step-daughter(an adult not living in my house) has a U.S. Cellular monthly pay-as-you-go Samsung smartphone that is badly damaged. I still have my old galaxy S5 from before I upgraded to a new device. Is it possible for me to give her my old phone to use with her plan?

@HUGSEA22 Having a damaged phone is never fun. We're here to help. One thing that I would highly suggest before giving the S5 to your daughter is checking to see if it's compatible on the U.S. cellular network. I'm curious, would your daughter possibly be interested in joining our prepaid services? https://www.verizonwireless.com/prepaid/?intcmp=INT-SITESEARCH-REDIRECT-PREPAID
