sounds like a great promotion. Unfortunatly Best Buy does not control the offers on upgrades from the phone carriers.

Upgrading a phone for $1 is always an exciting prospect that makes upgrading incredibly affordable! I'm sorry to hear that you found the offer you were interested in not to include US Cellular. Most of our phones that are directly listed as US Cellular compatible devices are unlocked phones, which you would regrettably be unlikely to find for the cost of $1. You can check them out here, though.
Alternatively, while this may be a more costly option, you may want to contact the respective carrier about using a currently locked device on US Cellular's network. In some cases, you may purchase a phone (in your case, it would need to be at the unactivated price to avoid any contractual obligations with the carrier) that operates on the same type of network as your current carrier. In your case, US Cellular operates on a CDMA network. The intended carrier may unlock the phone to allow it to be used with US Cellular's services. The major carriers that operate on a CDMA network would be Verizon and Sprint. With this option, I would first encourage you to discuss this option with US Cellular and the intended carrier (Verizon or Sprint) for finer details.
You can also check out Verizon's, Sprint's, and US Cellular's Unlocking Policies by clicking the individual links provided.
I hope this helps!
