    Hate to be that guy... But is there root for this yet?

  4. Essential Phone?

    Hi all. I know traffic has slowed here, but hoping someone has some insight for me. Has anyone tried to activate an Essential phone through uscc? I'm not super techy,but from what I've seen essential has the correct lte bands. Maybe when calling in and say it's a pixel?
  5. Hey y'all. The Oreo update is officially rolling out to US Cellular S8 and S8+ devices today. No word yet on a download link to manually update, so you'll have to rely on checking for the update on your phone for now. Have fun mashing that update button! Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  6. I should have made this switch a long time ago! I love this phone, plus I'm done with USC! Well somewhat, considering they're my best Fi service coverage. Sent from my Pixel 2 XL using Tapatalk
  7. I was a long time Samsung user before my Nexus 6P, I will never go back. Imagine a world where you only have one app to do each function (instead of 3 similar apps) I think the hardware on my S5 was more durable, and swapping the back button took a month to re learn, but you'll love it Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  8. I have a regular pixel 2 (Verizon model) and I find that I have no reason for rooting anymore,. It cAuses .ore trouble then it's worth. The pure Android system is way better then Samsungs bloat. Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
  9. Thanks, that's kinda how I feel its going to be. My phone comes tomorrow and I can't wait! Sent from my SM-G935R4 using Tapatalk

  11. I've been using Samsung phones since the S3, but I recently shattered the screen on my S7 Edge (even damage the OLED screen itself). So I just ordered a Pixel 2XL and I am also switching to Fi. The question for others who have made this switch is; will I be happy with the Pixel phone, compared to the Samsungs I have owned in the past? I love rooting my phones and flashing Roms, so I know I'll get to enjoy that aspect again, at the least. Sent from my SM-G935R4 using Tapatalk
  12. USCC Blocks

    Interesting... I never bothered since android needs root to do so. How about quad 9 DNS? Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  13. Don't know how many of you use custom DNS settings on your USCC devices, but I've found that they block for whatever reason. is not blocked.
  14. Samsung has always lacked in signal strength, gave up on them years ago.
  15. Does anybody use a Pixel XL on USCC and have trouble keeping LTE? I just picked up a Pixel XL 128GB (Verizon model with the locked bootloader) from Woot and am having trouble with the LTE keeping signal. Below are some readings reading the dbm and asu: -89dbm, 50 asu-104, 37-105, 35-102, 99 What I see happening is that the LTE signal starts out "good" then after a minutes gets weaker and the signal bars go empty for 2-3 seconds and then LTE comes back. This happens when the ASU hits 99. The Pixel constantly does this yet I haven't noticed a hit on the battery as if the device were constantly scanning for signal. I took the SIM and put it in my Nexus 6P and the signal was much more reliable & stable, below are some numbers for dbm & asu: 103dbm, 37 asu102, 38 For laughs, I set the Pixel to 3G and got these numbers and didn't loose connection: 86 dbm, 4 asu I saw that the Pixel XL does have issue with weak reception and the TMobile & Verizon LTE bands have been problematic but it may have been a manufacturing issue that has since been corrected. I'm wondering if I received an unlucky refurb model from Woot. Any other Pixel experience on USCC is appreciated, because I can't have a phone that constantly looses signal, so I'm really thinking I'll need to return this ASAP. Thanks!
  16. Oreo on V20?

    I'll believe it when I see it, but:
  17. LTE Roaming on T-Mobile / AT&T

    I had disable/enabled with the same results regardless of the settings. In the end US Cellular told me that the device is no longer capable of being used on the network. Which isn't true. But they are clearly blocking them from accessing the network. They ended up tell me I needed to upgrade to new router from the store. They aren't what they used to be, very bad support and very bad technical support. I ended up with two of the devices which produced the same results. I returned them both to the seller. Immediately after, someone locally listed a NEW D-Link DWR-922 for $90, so I snatched it and activated it. Works better than expected, considering I'm about 25 miles from the tower and well outside their coverage zones. Quite happy now. It does roam on Verizon, but haven't seen T-Mobile or AT&T roaming yet. And for those wondering. It does accept external SMA antennas on one or both ports. I'm using an 11DBi Log Periodic antenna with 50 feet of LMR400 (Wilson 400) coax.
  18. Oreo Updates

    Well, I finally did the update to crc5. Sounds like if usc does pick that one I should get auto OTA after that. Just not sure if they'll ever actually release one though since every other carrier already has. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  19. LTE Roaming on T-Mobile / AT&T

    Have you checked if automatic roaming is enabled in the settings? Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
  20. Sounds like it's either a hardware issue or a design flaw. I'd recommend returning it on warranty while you can and we if a replacement does the same thing. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  21. I recently bought an LTE router and it is able to roam on T-Mobile and AT&T. Funny enough, it won't even connect to US Cellular. I stumped some techs with it. They also kept telling me T-Mobile isn't a roaming partner of US Cellular, but it is for sure. AT&T though, that's a surprise though. Anyone see this happening in their phones or LTE routers? It's strange but awesome. Only downside is I can't connect to the US Cellular network. Its a Netgear LG2200D.
  22. *228? Sent from my SM-G935R4 using Tapatalk
  23. I've seen lots of reports about the international variant having dropped calls and intermittent signal,. But not any carrier specific Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
  24. US Cellular Variant of the S9.
  25. Us cell model or unlocked? Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
  26. First this thread can be dumped in the S9 forum when we get one. LOL Anyway, So I just picked up the S9 and so far the phone is an awesome piece of hardware. But it seems to lacking in the reception area just a little. And when I say little I mean that sitting here at my desk my S7 had a full stack and never missed a beat. The S9 fluctuates wildly and I have already missed a person calling me, the only way I knew that I missed that call is that the voice mail alert went off. Is this a fluke? Or is it gonna be the S3 debacle all over again?
