  4. To switch or not

    They also have the Note 8 for $10/month (30 monthly payments), with a qualifying trade-in. I don't know what they consider a qualified trade-in though. Sent from my SM-G935R4 using Tapatalk
  5. Note 8 forum

    Sorry I'll get it made asap Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  6. Note 8 forum

    I started a couple of threads about the Note 8 but there really hasn't been much discussion about it. What kind of information are you looking for? Samsung is acting really crappy lately so their devices are not so popular these days. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  7. To switch or not

    Okay the new promos are out. iPhone 8 or Z2 force is $10.00 month... The 8 plus I believe is $13 and change a month.. So now the z2 force with it's 4 year guarantee to be free of damage is quite enticing. Plus it is lighter than the others. But seriously the switch to iPhone... On the fence still. Have all my Android apps and they would load to the z2 force whereas I would have to find equivalents on an iPhone... I think I will go check out the z2 force. I liked how thin and supposedly durable it is. Now to find out if Diztronic has a case for it.

    Do we not have a Note 8 forum , or did i over look it?
  10. System Update

    Blocking root is foolish on their part. Android is a Linux based OS that the manufacturers are commercializing. If you have ever used a computer with Linux on it, obtaining "root" or superuser permission is a way of life. My Note 8 will probably be my last android from Sammy because they are being this way. In my situation I haven't taken the update they are pushing because I haven't rooted yet because of the only being able to charge the battery to 80% once rooted but Sammy will only let you delay an update for so much time before it will just force the update through. At some point I will decide to root it and after a little digging I think I found a way to keep the old version of android until I do decide to go that route. There are apps called package disablers which allow you to disable BS on your phone without having root. The ones I found on the play store are paid apps and I chose the BK one in particular because it has a good rating. The system packages can be dangerous to disable but the app does give you the ability to do so. It also shows you what is safe to disable like bloatware. After some digging I found the necessary packages in the system file to disable to prevent the OTA Sammy update and so far so good. The update pop-up is gone. Now on to disabling some bloatware. Sorry about the long post but I just wanted to share with you guys. Maybe some of you are in a similar boat. Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk

  13. data roaming deal

    Interesting... the website still says 400MB. However, I was in Arizona last month and also in Northern Wisconsin, and ended up using about 450MB roaming data according to my data tracker app... I never noticed a change in my data speeds. Of course, that's not really saying much because I can sit in the same spot up north and one minute have full speed 3G and the next I have less than 1x speeds...
  14. Enhanced LTE

    Its a shame that manufactures removed the separate 3g radio a few years ago. There are large areas where even Verizon doesn't have 4G coverage... I know many people who have gotten lost because they got a phone call and couldn't continue to use their GPS in Northern Wisconsin.

  16. Enhanced LTE

    Any news on enhanced LTE for the S8+? I hate having to hang up to send/receive mms messages... I know I can use wifi to surf the internet while on the phone, but that doesn't help me with messages. TIA Crash [emoji95] Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  17. Moto X4 compatible with U.S. Cellular

    I use this as well, with a toggle in the notification shade to quickly switch when one network isn't responding well. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  18. iPhone 6S+ 64GB Silver *MINT*

    Sounds like a plan, let me know when you can. : ) I'll also entertain Pixel XL and Pixel 2 trades or trades +/- X I have several phones I want to sell but this is my only real "mint" one. The rest are well used and I don't want to sell a potential dud to anyone here (unless you want a dud?) Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  19. data roaming deal

    Last I was at the company store, they said the cap was up to 600MB, and that the company was experimenting with lifting the cap entirely on select accounts to see just how much additional usage it would incur. Maybe the cap will go away one of these days. No indication WHEN that might happen.
  20. data roaming deal

    If I hadn't gotten 2 free s8's and a free iPhone 8, I would have jumped ship this time around with the limited roaming data. 400mb these days is gone in a day when traveling anywhere. Sent from my SM-G950U using Tapatalk
  21. Moto X4 compatible with U.S. Cellular

    Thanks for the info!
  22. Moto X4 compatible with U.S. Cellular

    I have the purchased version of FiSwitch. An app from the play store. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  23. Moto X4 compatible with U.S. Cellular

    Hey Stanley, How did you get to the stats screen that shows the cellular networks usage? I'm new to proj fi, and have been trying to find this info. Thanks!
  24. iPhone 6S+ 64GB Silver *MINT*

    That is a hell of a deal. Too bad A} I don't need a phone or know anyone who does and 2} don't want an iPhone. But I'll ask around to all the people I know in real life Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  25. I used this phone for a day, kept it as a reserve or backup, never needed it. It is listed on Swappa (Here) TUSCC members get a better deal! EDIT: cant hyperlink, idk why: https://swappa.com/listing/TZI495/view Pics: Condition: Like brand new, without the sticker holding the box together or the film on the device - other than that, no scratches (not even those hologram/hairline teeny tiny ones) - this thing is mint. It's been in the box since the day after I bought it. Comes with everything, phone, charger, cable, sim card tool, book, box, and I'll personally draw a smiley face on the inside of the box if you want Returns: If you REALLY need a return, let me know. Asking Price: $ 350 (Apple says it's worth $460ish fwiw) via paypal, I will ship it via flat-rate USPS or UPS Ground (your choice no additional cost) and provide tracking. Feel free to make offers, too. If anyone knows how I can provide proof of clean IMEI (like we do with checksum verification?) Idk how to prove that 3rd party. Please PM me with any questions or ask here in the forum!
  26. System Update

    I never even thought of that. That's probably what they are doing don't know why they fight rooting so badly. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  27. System Update

    They probably added a patch to block the root method. I don't know for sure but on the Note 8 they are rolling out patches that block root on it Sent from my SM-N950U using Tapatalk
  28. System Update

    Had a system update come through this morning. Was to busy to look at the size of the update but now that it's done so far the only change I have noticed is the navigation bar stays up in some apps that it didn't before with a dot on the left side of the navigation bar that you can double to tap to hide the navigation bar. The update discription also said it had some security patches as well. Thankfully this update doesn't seem to add any new bloatware. Haven't noticed any crazy new features, seems to switch apps and close to home quicker but that could very well just be placebo from me trying to notice differences. Anyone else notice any differences? Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
  29. My wife has an iPhone 5 that is giving problems. My daughter had an iPhone 6 that she cracked the screen on again. She went to get a new phone and I told her to get her own account which she did. I repaired the iPhone 6 and am transferring the data from her 5 to the 6. I've muddled through putting iTunes on my windows 7 laptop and restored a backup of her 5 onto her 6. The photos don't sync so I've been trying to do this without success. Somehow iTunes grabs the "my pictured" folder from my laptop and puts them on the iPhone. I delete them and try to change the folder for the photos. When I chose the folder that has the photos from the 5 itunes shows "0 photos". I have looked all over for a fix so I'm here asking if anyone has advice. Fwiw I see that the folders for photo files, (I know the photos are not backed up but the compacted photo data) are all read-only and I have not been able to change this attribute. Short of using the attrib command I've tried all I know to try. I have ownership of the folders etc. Thanks Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
