    Prepaid Question

    On devices you ALREADY OWN! Nope. That's why USCC won't get me back... A contract for the service, when I already have phones? No thanks. Nobody else does that. Sorry - I'm bitter about that stupid policy. /rant. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk

    Unlimited on US Celluar

    Well, my family (not me, but my parents) are switching to unlimited from a shared 10G plan - I'll so 5 speed tests BEFORE the switch to get an average, then I'll do 5 more AFTER the switch to the "standard" unlimited plan. We shall see just what kind of noose these things put on users. I should have that all done by noon today.

    I think (personally) that it's BS you dont get to combine the employer and military discounts... I mean... You work there and you served, as far as I'm concerned, you earned that extra bit of financial relief. Just a thought. /add moment

    Verizon Variant on USC?

    Call customer support. Tell them you need to activate a Galaxy S7 Edge. Give them the IMEI and SIM numbers. Don't mention that it's a Verizon phone. Sent from my Nexus 9 using Tapatalk

    http://teamuscellular.com/Forum/topic/8422-mega-list-of-can-i-gsmsim-unlock-my-insert-phone-name-threads/ Look at the google sheet of confirmed devices at the top. Short answer - as long as the IMEI isn't blacklisted, yes.

    S7 edge root

    MISSION ACCOMPLISHED! I ran the SU root.bat through adb again and I'm rooted! Xposed is installed and everything is up and running beautifully! For anyone else who may have issues while doing this: - OEM unlock doesn't matter - If root doesn't stick after the first try, run the root.bat file through adb again and it should stick. A third, or even more attempts may even be required, it's finicky. - If BusyBox won't install in the default location, install it in /system/bin/ - Having fingerprint or other secure locks on during this process has caused some issues for others. Not your usual Sammy rooting, that's for sure. Thank you to those who replied to my request for assistance. Sent from my SM-G935R4 using Tapatalk

  9. Until someone leaks the info on pastebin or something, which they wont for a LONG time, we cant know if they got that info, also - if they did, is that included in the sale? - again, USCC would have to come clean about it. The underworld isnt about to talk.

    (Discussion) Nougat for the Galaxy S5

    I have 1/22 unofficial installed now and used opengapps mini from 1/22 also to dirty flash - no issues at all. Ive dirty flashed the past 4? 5? upgrades and always update gapps the same time/same day. I saw on xda people having trouble, I just haven't had any. I'm just waiting for root then ill do the official version. edit: VERY SOON! https://download.lineageos.org/extras edit2: INSTALLED! 1. running unofficial 1/22, already had latest gapps 1/25 installed, did a complete backup. 2. installed 1/25 experimental from TWRP, wipe cache and reboot 3. back to twrp, installed nightly 1/25 AND root zip together, wiped cache and reboot. 4. prayer 5. all came up - connected to LTE, open Maps and had GPS, opened the play store and updated an app. All seems good! Good luck! Works for me!

    Yes. 4x 40 = 160 3x 20 = 60 160+60=220 At least in normal math - common core might say different. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk

    It would actually be $50 each for the 3 unlimited lines, you'd have to get a 4th unlimited line to get $40 each. $40 for 4+ lines, $50 for 3 lines, $55 for 2 lines. Also there's a disclaimer - ***Get this special introductory pricing when you choose Unlimited for EVERY LINE and enroll in Auto Pay & Paperless Billing.*** Emphasis added. So best case scenario it would be $50 x 3 for the three unlimiteds, unless the "EVERY LINE must be Unlimited" part nullifies that when adding the 2GB lines. Also, it seems the $10 discount for autopay / paperless can NOT be applied to these $40/$50/$55 promo prices. This makes me think that you can't mix and match since the autopay/paperless is built in like that but it IS applied to the regular pricing. So 3 unlimiteds @$50 and 3 2GBs @$20: $150 + $60 + $26.59 = $236.59 And if the $10 autopay/paperless discount applies, it's $226.59 But that's only if the catch isn't that ALL LINES have to be unlimited. If they do, then my original quote would stand. And if that's the case, then just make all of them unlimited: $40 x 6 = $240 ~$26 for fees (rounding) =$266. Might as well do that, IMO. Twenty extra dollars for unlimited on EVERY line. Another option could be to make one of the 2GB lines unlimited (if my assumption about EVERY LINE having to be unlimited in order to get the promo pricing is incorrect): $40 x 4 = 160 $20 x 2 = 40 $9.34 FUSF $16.32 other fees = $224.68 and then maybe a $10 discount??? but don't hold your breath... = $214.68 That's the one I'd try to do. But again, it all depends on whether you can mix and match Unlimited plans with the 2 and 6GB data buckets and still get the promo pricing for unlimited. Otherwise the price will be the original quote I proposed, or spend $20 extra per month and make them all unlimited.

    Just spoke with customer service and you can mix and match the lines . If two people wanted unlimited and 3 just needed 2gb it will cost less. Perfect for my family where my in-laws and mother are on our plan. They use less than 1gb a month Sent from my SM-G935R4 using Tapatalk

    Depends on the bandwidth on any given tower you're connected to. The way I read the new plans, even if you're capable of 25mbps the system software will limit your speed depending on pay level..... All the time.

    Because of SafteyNet (Google's "Verification" check) checks for root and also an unlocked bootloader. There are ways to get around it, but of course, that would derail this thread of the original purpose.

    Call customer service and tell them you need nano Sims to keep using their service with your new devices and they should overnight them to you. Don't give them any reason to doubt you.

    Also, root is great on the MXPE. Using the app Naptime to more aggressively Doze the phone has given me amazing battery life. I also use an app called Trimmer (fstrim) to clean up the internal memory. It's scheduled to run once a day, and the increased responsiveness is impressive. Every now and again I open the app and manually trim Cache, Data and System (the auto-trim won't trim /system) and it makes more of a difference in killing lag than a reboot does.

    Prepaid Question

    They changed to line fees to $20 per line on the new system, so it would be 2gb for $30+ $20*2 for a total of $70+taxes and fees. Ends up closer to $80. If you do switch to the shared connect plan, you will be tied in with a 2yr contract... Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk

    Aha! That explains a bunch! I thought it was like aboot.img which goes into the boot partition, then there's sbl1.img which is the secondary boot loader, then ... WHO NAMES THIS STUFF??? Oh well And another thing - "dev love bubble" !!!

    Just unzipped the latest 1/31 LOS and sure enough, there is a boot.img in there! I sure wish I could find a good explanation somewhere of the exact boot sequence and/or how all these partitions work together. Anyway, sure glad that issue of reboots was fixed, as now there will be more time for other improvements! I can't believe how much time developers like haggartk must spend on this stuff - for FREE! There spouses/others must go crazy too I'm sure glad they do, though!

    Weather notifications not showing up

    Whoa. I installed that app, set your zip code for my location, and clicked "notify about severe weather alerts" and immediately a notification popped up in my statusbar telling me about the snow storm. Welp, I'm glad you found an app that works! I'm very curious though as to why none of the others work... it's completely nonsensical. And thanks for the tip about this weather app! I really like it a lot for its functionality, but the design is absolutely horrible.

    So, how do they end this plan? Has to be more fine print somewhere if no 2 year is mandatory. They'll eventually want to kill it like the last one.

    SD card recommendation

    I mean, if you only need the extra storage for media and not for application data, you're better off using your external SD as Portable Storage instead of adoptable storage (formatting as internal). The only advantage to adoptable storage is that you can put apps on it. I've got like 38GB of apps (huge >10GB libs on some tools I need), and it's a nice feature for my 32GB phone and 32GB SD card. It's also GREAT on my Nvidia Shield TV, which only has 16GB of internal storage, which is now 136GB now that I adopted a super fast USB3 SSD to it. If I were just using it for pics and music and stuff it would definitely not be worth the hassle for me, especially not being able to pop out the SD and use it in a computer. Which raises a question: have you removed the SD card since you set it up as internal storage?

    3 unlimited = 70 + 55 + 45 = 170 3 2gb = 20 + 20 + 20 = 60 = 230 And there's a $10 discount for paperless billing / autopay, so it should be: $220 plus fees (but tell me again about how there are no hidden fees on these new plans?), which I estimate: $4.20 for E911 and T.R.S. (this one is NC only, so YMMV) $10.27 for Federal USF (it's 4.67% of your service charge, $220) $12.12 for regulatory cost recovery fee ($2.02 per line) ---------this is some BS. We have to pay extra because USCC loses money from people who can't or won't pay?!? = $26.59 fees So the grand total for the plan (if you're in NC) should be: $246.59 per month.

    For Verizon's unlimited plan the military discount is the only one that's eligible. Employer discounts aren't as far as I know.

    It's been fun...

    I like my 6p... But if i put it in my pocket the signal drops like a rock... And it gets better reception with Verizon... Weird. I'm just really annoyed with USC at home... Signal has been degrading quite a bit and we drop calls all the time... Even the lady's s4 is having trouble. I want to switch to Verizon... It would cost me like $10 more then we pay now with my discount for the same data (8gb). Only thing holding me back is my "contract" with USC for my owned devices (totally stupid) which ends in March... And I would need a new phone for the misses. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk

    but, pctech101, on 08 Oct 2013 - 6:19 PM, said: YW, NP. Tip: I couldnt get 3G flash to work on this Mega. I finally said heck with it and flashed the HiddenMenu apk from a USCC SG3 and walla, I can enable DIAG and Hidden Menu like on SG3. Then 3G works for PagePlus. Yeah!! This rocks! No SIM required in Phone for 3G (add USCC SIM to get rid of SIM message in notification bar). So you peeps that want a solution. Flash custom recovery, root, delete stock hiddenmenu apk, Replace with sg3 hiddenmenu apk Enable hidden menu and diag, Flash 3G keys..... There ya go So, I think is possible...
