    Well, I guess every good book has it's ending. This book has that ending as well. Effective today I will be turning over all site ownership to Jon, @iR1O, due to some work commitments. Jon has already been in charge of most day to day operations as you all have seen I'm sure and with more and more things happening in my life as well as work, I simply don't have the time to put in that this place deserves. I can't thank everyone enough for the amazing journey this has been and the support along the way. Feel free to hit me up on Hangouts if you ever want to just say "Hi!" and show Jon the support you all have shown me over the years. And remember, keep it family friendly. - Adam

    Thanks Rub. I will try it again when I get home tonight. I keep hoping it would just be some fluke thing and it will start working again[emoji4] Sent from my LGUS990 using Tapatalk

    Where to buy an S4?

    Amazon has plenty of S4 batteries you could try out to see if that's the issue, and they also have one hell of a return policy [emoji6] Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk

    Unlimited on US Celluar

    They were pretty misleading to customers that bought into this, i'll agree, but we posted about it well before it happened. I feel for you, truly, I just dont know where to point you to make a difference in it because they don't care about you, or most of us on here - the best way to show them that this is crap (and it is) is to leave. It sucks but I dont think theres a more productive way to go about it.

    Unlimited on US Celluar

    ALRIGHT GUYS So I posted on USC FB page which they somehow hid it from the visitor posts when I try to find it people were still commenting on it (No one from the FB page has responded at this time either), I emailed direct to email address on the USC website and when they sent me the survey to review the call with the the douchebag I speak of in this post I added this into the why I was not pleased box. So here it is: Very long but please read at this point I have received a response from USC from any outlet I've used, I actually reposted this 3x on the FB page it kept disappearing from the top of the Visitors posts when I went back in to look for it. Here it is: After a week of lousy LTE speeds I come to find out I have been deceived! Unlimited is LIMITEDCurrently on the Unlimited plan with 3 phones on my account. Up until about a week ago I was getting nearly 20mbs up/down speeds, then they just bottomed out to barely 2mbs up/dn. I checked our usages and thought maybe we are throttled. I look at my accounts and one of my boys has reached hi 22gb limit. Ok so he's probably going to get throttled fair enough. The rest of us shouldn't be getting throttled because of this. So I call in to find out what's going on and the girl checks over a few things and checks the towers and is clueless to what's going on, why my LTE speeds would be so slow all of a sudden. I was just getting back to my car from a grocery stop and she was going to patch me to Tech Support for further assistance I said well I will be driving again could you have them call me back in 15 minutes? She assured me they would well all day went by sitting waiting for the follow up call. It never happened. So I call in again when I am home from my day and get someone to bring up the notes and check some things again IMEI etc no luck completely confused they transfer me to Tech Support.The man checks some things and says ok you're on the phone with the problem I said yes but my wife is getting the slow speeds as well, he says ok can I call you on another phone to check further. I said sure. Even though the last woman said sorry that no one called you back they can't call you, you have to call in. This tech support man had no problem calling me so I don't know if these employees have any idea how the company works.I say so we shouldn't be throttled because my son reached his limit right? No that would never happen. So he says well have you heard of (D.O.) Data Optimization? I said no well on the unlimited plan this feature reduces speeds to allow more people BLAH BLAH BLAH so on. Basically they are throttling us because they can't support the amount of people that have unlimited at speeds that are supposed to be LTE.So this means this statement is a lie you will have LTE speeds up to 22gb after this you will be dropped to 1x. No one ever said to me they are going to limit my LTE speeds to 2mbs because they can't handle the higher speeds.The way I see this is my boy met his limit so my account was flagged and now they are going to throttle (data optimization B.S. phrase for throttle) the rest of the unlimited phones on my account because of this. When I was just getting 20mbs prior to this week.So I say I basically have to suck it up and deal with 2mbs from here on out? No you can switch to another plan that doesn't have D.O (FANCY PHRASE FOR THROTTLING) like the 2gb or 8gb...Why would I want to do that? I signed up for Unlimited that's what I should have, full LTE speed capabilities if I wanted 3g 2mbs I would buy a crappy phone and use 3g.So I want you all to try this and stand up because this is the Net Un-Neutrality happening right now right here on US Cellular. 4G LTE is 5-12mbs average with peak of 50mbs.I will not stop here, I will stir up some drama, I will find out who I need to talk to to deal with this BIG LIE!!! Hiding these things is just like lying. I will be seeking Legal recourse and another Cellular service provider after 10 years of dedication to your company so many people over the years I have given your praise and support are now being betrayed by YOU!So everyone on unlimited pull out your phone and run a speedtest....are you getting throttled to 2mbs or less? Yes or No? My test results.38Mbs dwn & 19.44Mbs up.91Mbs dwn & .19Mbs up1.62Mbs dwn & 6.65Mbs upAs if my upload speeds do me any good!! This is just wrong.

    Lineage OS?

    I'll answer my own question. Looks like there is an Unofficial Lineage OS for Sprint that works once you edit the assert line of the updater-script to support trlteusc/N910R4. Its still a bit buggy but it runs FAST. Lineage is just so much more responsive. Its sad that Samsung chooses to bog down such great hardware with so much junk. https://forum.xda-developers.com/note-4/snapdragon-dev/rom-lineageos-14-1-t3536401

    Still Have N6?

    Still using my N6 as my daily driver, and still loving it! An occasional slow launch of camera or other app, but otherwise, it's great. I'm waiting to see what the new Pixels will be, if they're any good, I may upgrade. Also still using & loving my Nexus 9.

    [Root] Note 4 Sys App Pains

    Use titanium backup for literally all of those issues. Also, making apps system apps, why? I have never needed or wanted to do that, is there a benefit to it? Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk

    How to root?

    There shouldn't be any way you have a warranty on a Note 4 anyway. It's a 3 almost 4 year old device. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk

    I see that verizon and other carriers offer video calling and I don't think it uses data? Is there something available for us on the galaxy s8 with uscellular that will enable us to do that? Also, I've apps or maybe native apps on other carriers that allow for you to send a quick voice message directly to a person through a text message... is that available for us and does it use data? ps> can you tell me if GOOGLE DUO is a solution?

    Note 5 Stock Firmware

    i been pretty busy lately. switched my router over to dd-wrt and had to redo all my passwords on all my devices and all the settings in dd-wrt itself. i then got a laptop and downloaded windows 10 pro and did a format and fresh install to the hdd. i then used acronis true image home to clone the hdd to an ssd and had to get all settings correctly for windows on laptop. finally getting back to this thread. about samsung pay and even google vr (i believe) i think i did read on xda that there is a work around to fix both those (again i believe). i read read and read all the time. for someone to say "google it" or "RTFM" they are pretty much jerks. when i come here (teamuscellular note 5 forums) and ask about rooting or flashing recovery it is not because i havent read its because there is NO good guide in a sticky. if there was a guide maybe we wouldnt have to ask the same questions over and over. googling.... xda dont have a us cellular section. i know about the sprint and verizon (cdma) areas but these are not us cellular. yes sometimes we get lucky and a sprint recovery will work but there has also been times in the past where i would use a sprint recovery and it would overheat my phone because it would have different clocks for cpu etc... anyhow to the great guys here that do contribute thank-you will be doing the root maybe tonight but not sure really why. there is no custom android 7.0 rom avail that we can flash is there? i do like to root just to mess around in the / area of the phone and i like to use the secret dial codes. thats probably enough reason to root right there. glad i didnt use that supersu you linked me to. it is only working on a two devices and note 5 isnt one. i read the last few pages on that thread. think i will look at the stable version
