    You'd have to work at getting to 22gb at the 1.5 pace. Patience I do not have Haha

    [ODIN] STOCK TAR FILES

    New firmware file: http://upload.teamuscellular.com/482 based on QB2 which is out now. Flash at your own risk of course, but this is the same way I did it before in the previous link. I didn't try it yet either. Good luck! ps: anyone know if it's possible to flash this kind of file with TWRP or do we have to use ODIN? I know TWRP can do zips AND images? Think this counts as an image?

    My verizon Sims will be here Friday. Been burned by them changing the rules so many times since 1999. I was going to Verizon when they announced unlimited but of course gave USCC a chance when they followed suit (kindof). Have been out of contract for a bit now and the big V is strong in the Cedar Falls area now. PS, not one rep in my corporate store knows anything about the HD option. They are steaming amongst themselves for moving to the plan also. Openly complaining about it in front of customers....

    S5 has separate LTE and CDMA antennas allowing lte data while on calls. The S7 has a combined antenna so without volte it drops Data to make calls. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk

    Interesting (to me at least) is that one CAN use a linux tool called Heimdall instead of Odin. I don't see any benefit unless you don't have access to Windows somewhere - I dual boot for as long as I can remember... It looks like I could flash all the custom firmware files with a gui or command-line, the phone needs to be put into download mode then flashed. Very simple. Just a FYI as I was exploring alternative ways to flash these files. Have fun!

    Exactly. If USCC would have been clear from the get go, we could all complain about how crappy a plan it is, but at least we could have made an informed choice. By not being clear that SD data was all data and not just streaming and not telling us what speed to expect upfront, people have a right to feel cheated. What makes this worse is it took them almost two months to start throttling. Also, I feel bad for the frontline reps. It seems clear they were not properly trained on this and now they are the ones that will catch all the crap from customers. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Yeah, something has to be effed up. If they think people are going to put up with this, they deserve to go out of business. I posted on Reddit. There are a couple of employees there that post there that seem to know what they are talking about. Interested to hear what your corporate store tells you. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    So get this: I got a N6P last week. I called in to activate, and the lady acted like I'd called in a bomb threat. I hung up and called back. Mark was very pleased that I knew what both an IMEI and SIM number were, and that I'd written them down and powered off both devices. (I got extra points for knowing how to *228!) But he had a very hard time. I waited on hold for ~30 seconds and this all took nearly an hour. Instead of lying and calling it a Nexus 6 like I had considered, I believed that they had all the kinks worked out. But Mark could not activate it as a Huawei Nexus 6P. But good news: there's a Google Nexus 6P code! "Just a couple more minutes, the system is slow today," he said, and we both had a good laugh about how "it was a day that ends with "Y". I told him about the 5X trick, and after a few minutes of that awkward phone support silence he decided to buck the system and try my idea. It didn't work. I told him about the Moto Nexus 6 trick. Still nothing. At this point the guy is determined to complete this task. He tried a few other phone models while I sat on hold for a few more minutes. When he came back on the line, he said he'd finally gotten a model code to work and that my phone was on the network, it's time to boot up and *228. USCC's completely incompetent system believes that my brand new Nexus 6P is actually a Galaxy S4, and wouldn't let me on their top of the line network that seems to be stuck in 2009 . FFS. I'm switching to Fi next week, and I recommend it highly. Fi is some for real next gen stuff. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk

    Data during phone calls

    If you are connected to WiFi I thought you could still be on a call and use the web. But the thing is that you must be on WiFi.

    Data during phone calls

    I might be wrong, but I think the switch to LTE data vs 3G might be the cause of no data during a call. My area just got LTE in the last couple of years, and I was able to use both before that.

    latest cqc2 firmware file here EDIT: I just installed this version of firmware and it seems fine. I can make and receive calls. I'm not a very accomplished script writer, but here's what I got so far to extract firmware: #!/bin/bash # mkfirm.sh - extract only parts of an official Samsung firmware file # usage: mkfirm.sh SM***.zip # will output G900R4_$ext_firmware.tar.md5 which is only the modem stuff # - no system, kernel, or recovery. Uses the zip file, not the tar or md5. mkdir -p firmtmp unzip $1 -d firmtmp cd firmtmp tar xf * f=$(ls -t -x *.md5) ext=${f:10:4} echo $ext tar -H ustar -c tz.mbn modem.bin NON-HLOS.bin rpm.mbn sbl1.mbn sdi.mbn > G900R4_"$ext"_firmware.tar md5sum -t G900R4_"$ext"_firmware.tar >> G900R4_"$ext"_firmware.tar mv G900R4_"$ext"_firmware.tar ../G900R4_"$ext"_firmware.tar.md5 cd ../ ls -lh G900R4_"$ext"_firmware.tar.md5 rm -r firmtmp

    Tablet questions recommendations

    I really like my Nvidia Shield tablet(actually 2 of them b/c of a battery recall). Mine have a stylus,not sure on the new ones, expandable memory and nividia is very good about updates. I even ended up buying the wireless remote,looks like an Xbox remote to me, and hooking it up to the TV through the mini HDMI port and watching sling TV and just using the tab in general. Just an option to think about as everyone has their own needs. Sent from my SM-G935R4 using Tapatalk

  30. Yes I run this. Got it from here. From what I remember, I installed the custom TWRP from that first post using Odin, then install Lineage and opengapps in the recovery. If you want there is also a root package for Lineage - you can or not, your preference. Great ROM - the klteusc version is currently being merged with klte, and I run klte now. Works great. New versions come out on Wednesdays. edit with links: samsung usb windows driver: http://www.samsung.com/us/business/support/owners/product/SM-G900RZKAUSC ODIN: http://odindownload.com/download/Odin3_v3.12.3.zip TWRP (custom for LineageOS): https://www.androidfilehost.com/?fid=457095661767150258 LineageOS: https://download.lineageos.org/klte opengapps (arm, 7.1, I use mini): http://opengapps.org/ root (use one for arm): https://download.lineageos.org/extras Any more questions, feel free!

    For kicks and giggles I went ahead and switched to the unlimited plus "hd" plan and ran a speed test. Download is at 3.0mbps and upload was at 10mbps. So price jump but no major data speed change. Sent from my SM-G935R4 using Tapatalk

    Went back to corporate. Rep said her data was terrible as well and called in for me. They tried to fix my line and ended up writing a ticket on mine and her line ha. They have been bombarded with calls and complaints. So I guess I'll play along, see where this goes.

    To be fair their "unlimited" is advertised as "unlimited" - and thats it Only once you go into the store to pick a plan - you might be told about the SD and HD plans - HD having the higher speeds (how high, idk) and SD being...well, you saw it. I feel like they really did kind of trick a LOT of people with this, and most never even knew there were different speed options - only that unlimited was what they wanted, and got it. Fraud? I think thats a stretch, but I do believe most customers were heavily misled by it.

    I wish that was an option for me but between where my wife spends most of her time working and my in-laws who are also on our acct USCC is the only carrier that really is an option. I wish one of the big carriers would just buy them out but with all the money just spent on the 600 spectrum auction I am not sure a buyer will be coming anytime soon. It's just sad as this once was a good company that seemed to care. It's getting pretty obvious they don't anymore. And this is from somebody that has not been impacted by this yet. I am still getting full speed. But it is likely coming and just the whole idea infuriates me on principle. Here is to holding out hope this was just some eff up and it gets fixed.

    Well I just went to the USCellular site and at the bottom on the page that tells about these new plans it says unlimited will be at SD speeds and then throttled to 2g speeds at 22 GB of use. The 2 & 6 GB plans will be at HD speeds then I believe they drop to 2g speeds once they got the 2 or 6 GB limits. What a joke. Got to rip customers off some way they can..

    It was my understanding that the SD/HD speeds were only suppose to apply to video streaming, not slow the data speeds for everything. Streaming sites like YouTube would have to be opted in to stream at the lower rates. I don't know. It just seems like I got lied to and us cellular is not as forthright as the claim to be. And if you have to pay extra for the HD then I would count that as a hidden fee since I don't see that advertised anywhere. Which is part of there big campaign right now "no hidden fees".

    Wow, still? I wonder if the agent just didn't know - and said no, or if they're still actually not doing it. Either way is stupid, and I fully condone lying about it, it's stupid that they have to "allow it". In their system it just says "Customer OE" - doesn't say the phone no matter what it is - if the Pixel isn't on that list it might just break their heads and they say no because their stupid list is outdated by 6 months.

    Yeah no kidding. I've been using the Pixel with absolutely no problem since October. Not sure what the hold up is. Well I'll just massage the truth again I guess.

    iPad customization without jailbreak

    Okay so I took the dive and now have a brand new iPad tablet. Any iPad or iPhone users here that can tell me how to get a clutter free home screen? I am putting apps into folders but that seems excessive. Is there really no way to customize this thing like you can an Android with a pretty much blank home screen? Oh and is there a way to decrease the spacing of the icons?

    But if you fill it enough to have 2 screens then you can move stuff to 2nd screen and open up the first screen a little. Still top-to-bottom, left-to-right like you said but at least opens it up a little if you want. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk

  49. So is USCC on the hook for their customers info getting stolen? How did USCC not know about the breach? If they knew about it I feel rather betrayed that I found out through 3rd party media rather than the company directly... ...someone needs to contact a lawyer.
