    Hello

    Hello @sean19661, welcome to TeamUSCellular! Please use the search feature and read through the forums before posting a new question, oftentimes the answer is already right in front of you! See this post: Click here Also, we don't have any safestrap recovery for the Galaxy S5. US Cellular did not lock the bootloader for the GS5, so we can use normal custom recoveries.

    Unlimited on US Celluar

    The throttling that is being spoken of is the unlimited states it's supposed to be standard definition speed only. People are running high definition with no issues. 4G speed is good until 22GB, throttled to 2G after that. Remember these plans are only a week old. Just because you are seeing high def now, doesn't mean that you won't see it in a month once they get it figured out. OR It is possible they are using it as a disclaimer. maybe they will allow high def as long as the network isn't congested, in which case they would end up throttling the speed. if they had to. OR Maybe I don't know what the hell I'm talking about..lol

  4. The Samsung website says for us carrier versions you have to go to the carrier. If us cellular won't do anything... And neither will Samsung... I don't know. You could always try shaming them on facebook, but if they dog in and don't want to refund because of the imei mismatch... There are tutorials online for changing the imei number in software, can you try that and make it match the physical device? This is not strictly legal, but what have you got to lose, and you're not in the USA anyway Sent from my SM-G900R4 using Tapatalk

  5. Didn't they recall all the Note 7s, even the ones that had gotten battery replacements? It'll be extra impossible to get any customer service on a US regional phone that was supposed to be returned and is not even on the market.

  6. I mean, I wish you all the best, but I don't know that there's much I can think of for you to try. You bought a local regional US phone and are using it internationally. I really doubt that Samsung, or even US Cellular, are going to honor any "warranty" on said phone because you bought a regional US phone, not international. I really doubt anything is going to come from it. I obviously feel bad for you because it sucks to lose money, but since a regional phone was taken internationally I doubt you're going to get much luck past asking Samsung/US Cellular nicely and hoping you get a rep on a good day.

    It all depends if I gotta shave or not[emoji6]. On a serious note all speed tests I have run show exactly the same as before the upgrading to the new plan. Have not tested while tethering, as I don't do much tethering. Sent from my SM-G935R4 using Tapatalk

    Anyone have a Moto G4 Plus?

    Well finally pulled the trigger on the G4 plus after reading and watching a crap ton of reviews. I'm not as much into phones like i used to be, not a heavy user, so I think it will be fine for me. Really wanted the LG V20, but I couldn't justify paying $600 for it. Should have it Friday and will be activating over the weekend. A guy at work just had one activated, so I don't see any problems.

    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

    You can try it, if it doesnt work it wouldnt hurt anything (i dont think) - it would just fail and you'd reboot.

    LG V20

    I got my V20 a week or so ago. came from a Samsung S6. Biggest selling point was the battery and memory. I use to enjoy rooting years ago, but now?? Meh. I run Nova Launcher and that does enough to allow me to configure the UI the way IU want. I was unsure at first of going with such a large phone being its a PITA to carry in a pocket, but the size it definitely growing on me.

    Anyone have a Moto G4 Plus?

    Honestly I still believe that the Moto X Pure Edition from 2015 is more bang for your buck, regularly on sale for $250 for at least the 32GB model. I even saw the 64GB model on sale directly from Moto the other day for that price Sent from my Nexus 9 using Tapatalk

    Unlimited on US Celluar

    While activating a phone last night, I got a hold of a very knowledgable rep. So I asked, "I was on the original Unlimited but was forced off after two years due to the contract being a promo. Will this new plan be treated as such? Forced to move on?" Rep "There is no fine print to end this plan. The system is set in a manner that includes Unlimited as a regular plan option, not a promo. As long as the customer adheres to contract rules and finds no way to abuse it, the plan will continue." I was just quoting myself in anticipation of a good laugh in two years......

    Developer O Preview 1 is out

    But so far isn't available for the N6. I'm hoping that will come out eventually as well. I see no reason to get rid of my N6 yet as it is a lot better than any other phone US Cellular has to offer right now. May have to find me a 6P if they stop building for the 6.......:( https://www.xda-developers.com/google-announces-android-o-developer-preview-1-available-for-supported-devices/

    Trade in after certain amount paid?

    I was just fooling around my account and noticed that it no longer says after a certain amount is paid on my installment I can trade in my working device. Is this something U.S. Cellular got rid of or is it just something no longer shown? I am on a Total plan. I'm also uncertain if this has already been discussed but I searched for it and nothing showed up

    I was able to get the wanam xposed framework and flashed just fine. I had updated my firmware and lost my backup and all stored file for it. Thanks for the help!

  26. I think that's what he's trying to do, but even though his intentions might be pure, it's been so long since the phone was recalled I doubt anything is going to happen. Yet again, one of the downsides of buying both a used phone, but a used phone that was not meant to be used internationally.

    Cases and screen protection

    I have a Spigen rugged armor on my pixel. I have a cheap offbrand glass screen protector which scratches easily. I love the case. It's fairly thin so the phone retains its small size, which is one reason I bought the phone in the first place. Protection wise, probably not as good as an OtterBox, but I don't have a habit of dropping my phone's and mostly bought it for price and to protect against scratches.

    Cases and screen protection

    That looks pretty nice, for now. Clear cases always get scratched and dirty and look bad after a while to me. Have had great luck with diztronic, they're a Wisconsin company that makes tpu rubber cases, very slim and minimal. I dropped my S5 face down on concrete from 6 feet, the phone was fine. 2.5 years later my case still looks great. Glass screen protectors are also the way to go Sent from my SM-G900R4 using Tapatalk

    Maybe they throttle after you get to a certain amount of usage... Like getting to 20gb then they throttle you? I don't know but that seems like what they would try.

    Sad to say but their own actions in the past are what lead us to be skeptical. I just switched two lines. $15 cheaper, I'll give it a go. Confirmed no contract or etf so worse case I end up with Verizon

    Pixel launcher questions..

    Wow that was more than what I was looking for but it is a nice step by step. The Motorola junk came from their website for unlocking the bootloader. We have a new laptop and I don't have any tools on it yet so I downloaded their junk. Thank you now even I could follow this.. a rock or pebble could

    Unlimited on US Celluar

    This was what was quoted to me on Facebook from the rep If any lines have unlimited, the only discount which would apply would be Military. Employee discounts will only apply with 2 GB and 6 GB lines for Total Plans. As for 7 lines, 3 with 2 GB and 4 with unlimited, it would be $230.00. If you go with auto-pay/paperless billing, subtract $10.00 from that. This quote includes the current $40.00 promotion for having 4 lines with unlimited. ^Jeff Sent from my SM-G935R4 using Tapatalk

    Verizon Variant on USC?

    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.
