  2. 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 DRW-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.

  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. Earlier
  8. 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.

  10. 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
  11. US Cellular Variant of the S9.
  12. Us cell model or unlocked? Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk
  13. 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?
  14. Moto X4 compatible with U.S. Cellular

    That's kind of what I was thinking, as far as the "roaming". In my area, USCC is still the best, but if we go south on a day trip or whatever, it's spotty, as far as data, and some calls, so it seems it would almost have to be better, in some respects.
  15. Moto X4 compatible with U.S. Cellular

    As a former uscc subscriber that now uses FI, I haven't looked back. It's the same great uscc service with actual roaming. There are rare times when it gets stuck on a bad tower, but I use the fi switch app to move it. Not a huge deal to me Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  16. Moto X4 compatible with U.S. Cellular

    I was looking at their plans/prices the other day, and saw that deal. Makes it very tempting. The ONLY reason I haven't just done it, is I'm not super thrilled to switch from my Pure to one of these. But my wife wants a different phone, so.....might just get one and activate it on USCC, since it appears it is possible. Just not sure yet.
  17. Moto X4 compatible with U.S. Cellular

    Pasted a site below that I felt had good info. I've also been looking at switching to Fi. They have a deal right now to buy the AO x4 for $249, and if you get a second you'll get $249 credit to your Fi account. What I've seen, and this article describes, is the AO x4 and regular x4 are essentially the same. Difference is the AO version is pure Android. The regular version has some Lenovo/Motorola customizations, also has Tempow Audio where the AO version does not. Per the Fi FAQ, both versions work with Fi but only the AO version is available to purchase through Fi. https://www.digitaltrends.com/cell-phone-reviews/moto-x4-android-one-review/
  18. Moto X4 compatible with U.S. Cellular

    Which version did you get, by the way? They have an Android One version, obviously for Project Fi. And I'm assuming they have a non Android One version, but the Motorola site shows the X4 working with Project Fi, so I'm assuming they're all the same, essentially.
  19. Moto X4 compatible with U.S. Cellular

    Thanks for the confirmation. Probably going to do that, unless we just switch to Project Fi, and both get an X4. I don't really want to give up my Pure, but might.
  20. Moto X4 compatible with U.S. Cellular

    It works just fine. I just told em it was a nexus.
  21. Moto X4 compatible with U.S. Cellular

    I just now noticed the second post, on the third page, where the person says they activated it, simply by saying they got a different phone, and telling them the IMEI. I message that person, asking if it's still working fine, hopefully I'll hear back.
  22. Moto X4 compatible with U.S. Cellular

    I know this is an older topic, but I looked into Project Fi, and apparently, according to their coverage maps, we'd get 4GLTE in our area. U.S. Cellular still has the best overall coverage in our immediate area, but not so great when we go on day trips to the bay area and whatnot, so maybe that's where the Spring and T Mobile towers would make it better? We're not data hogs with our phones, and right now, are grandfathered into a 6GB plan, that is much more than we normally use, and cheaper than the unlimited plans they now have. That said, Project Fi would be cheaper for us, unless there was a month where we used more data, but highly unlikely. My wife hates her S7, but tghe Pure is a huge phone, and with her carpal tunnel, it's not ideal. She's close to willing to try it one more time, to get the simplicity of the Pure. And, it's just a good phone! My only slight issue, is that now I'm used to my Pure, even in the Otterbox Defender series case, haha. Going to the Moto X 4, wouldn't be a bad thing....just that it's closer to the size of the old Moto X first generation. For my wife, it would be about the same as her S7, which would be great for her. We may do it, but I sure wish I could simply activate a Moto X 4 just on U.S. Cellular, even if it took saying it was a Pure. Of course, if it causes issues, then no point, obviously. That would be ideal......she gets a smaller Moto X, and I stay with my Pure.
  23. I switched to Verizon: Explanation

    I agree, it's got the best coverage in most areas because it combines 3 services. The only time it'set me down is where all 3 are roaming and only a specific single carrier works My bills are about $30 Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  24. Signal boosting

    Frequency chart... https://www.droid-life.com/2015/02/05/us-wireless-carrier-bands-gsm-cdma-wcdma-lte-verizon-att-sprint-tmobile/ Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk I've used Wilson boosters and surecall boosters for work. We use att, Verizon, and Sprint. It's hit or miss whether it will help or not. A note of advice,. Be sure there is plenty of separation between interior antenna and exterior antenna.
  25. Signal boosting

    C'mon people!?! That's all I get? [emoji2] Well I might have to be a guinea-pig pig for everyone.... Can anyone at least confirm the Rx/Tx frequencies from my previous post? Sent from my SM-G930R4 using Tapatalk
  26. I switched to Verizon: Explanation

    I highly recommend Project Fi. While it's limited to Nexus and Pixel devices, it uses Sprint, T-Mobile, and USCC networks, and relatively seamlessly. Plus it's $20/mo for unlimited talk and text, then $10/GB. My bill is usually less than $30 per month if I'm smart about my data usage, but still pretty reasonably priced if I use more than normal. I've got service in all the places that I did on USCC, plus rural areas that are covered by Sprint, and T-Mobile is pretty good in larger cities. Just my 2¢ Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
