  1. I quit

    As of recent, I quit my job with the US Cellular agency I was working for. I have a lot or trouble making excuses for the company I represent. US Cellular only has about 4.7 - 4.8 million subscribers and should not be playing the games of companies with 100 million or more. I'll still hang around here to keep tabs on the sinking ship US Cellular has become but I now work for sprint and the difference is astounding. This community really is amazing and I hope that those of you who still have service with US Cellular the best of luck. Sent from my SM-G935R4 using Tapatalk
  2. Massive subsidy change

    As of may 12th U.S. Cellular has cut back almost all subsidy options leaving device installments as the only way to purchase popular devices. The only devices available for subsidy are the LG envoy 3, lg wine 3, the moto g 3rd gen, the zte imperial max, and the Samsung Galaxy grand prime. Sent from my SM-G935R4 using Tapatalk
  3. data roaming deal

    Not areas but devices. Even though a device is supported doesn't mean it will get the roaming immediately. Like all ota's it is staggered. Sent from my SM-G920R4 using Tapatalk
  4. Someone who works with me got his 6p 128gb activated somehow... sometimes we get the issue you are describing when the previous device was not removed properly. Pm me if you get a chance. Sent from my SM-G920R4 using Tapatalk
  5. data roaming deal

    I do not know the technical side of enabling LTE roaming. I've tried everything to get it to work. When it comes down to it you will have to get the OTA for it to work. Anyone higher than me seem confident that the moto X pure and Nexus series will get Support. Since these devices do not get there OTA update from US Cellular god only knows how long it will take. On another note out of all the Samsung devices we carry the first smartphone getting LTE roaming is the grand prize as of today. Sent from my SM-G920R4 using Tapatalk
  6. Anyone live around east Tennessee

    My store is in clinton tn. Not very far from knoxville or oakridge. It seems that the majority of the community lives in the Midwest markets.
  7. Anyone live around east Tennessee

    That's a pretty broad statement, NY daughter works at US Cellular and she is not an idiot.......Sent from my SM-G900R4 using Tapatalk I will not say all us cellular employees are idiots, some are pretty good at what they do. Unfortunately the majority of experiences I read on this website tend to be negative because the employee just didn't know what they were doing, and honestly the job isn't that difficult. I'm sure that she, as I, prides herself with the ability to help a customer when others cannot.Sent from my SM-G920R4 using Tapatalk
  8. I'm curious to see how much of our community lives in the East Tennessee and Knoxville markets. My store is in East Tennessee and im curious if I've ever ran across someone or if I could possibly help out where other idiots who work for us cellular can't. Sent from my SM-G920R4 using Tapatalk
  9. 6.0.1 radio issues

    Employees have been informed of an issue with the newest update for the Nexus 6. Apparently it makes device default to a blank APN profile. Apparently there's a fix in the works but this apparently relies on Motorola. The temporary fix is to toggle airplane mode on and off after each power cycle. Sent from my SM-G920R4 using Tapatalk
  10. data roaming deal

    I have a solution that I haven't had a chance to test yet. The LTE roaming is extended to compatible devices based on a list of devices when you do a PRL update. What you would have to do is a PRL update on a listed device and then have that SIM card switched to another device. Like I said I have no idea if this would work but it should.

  11. Super Saturday!

    This Saturday the g4 and (black) galaxy s6 will be $0.01 on subsidy just like black friday except all day. Most agents get very limited inventory for this, I only have 7 total devices for the sale [emoji33]. Thankfully our agent owner will cover the subsidy after we have used up a our allocated amount.

  12. Upgrade to 18 months on installment plans?

    It's not necessarily 18 "months" it's 18 "payments". You no longer have to pay off the entire financing agreement, you can pay any number of payments. For example if you have already made 10 payments you can make 8 payments and then you are early upgrade eligible. Sent from my SM-G920R4 using Tapatalk
  13. data roaming deal

    There is nothing systematically preventing it... to my knowledge at least. I'll find out and post as soon as I know. Sent from my SM-G920R4 using Tapatalk
  14. data roaming deal

    Okay I have some more information to share. Sprint is our roaming partner. That could change in the future but right now sprint has offered us cellular the best terms. Also devices such as the nexus and galaxy s6 will be added to the roaming capable list but that will require a sizable software update. I have no idea when they will release this update but I suspect that they will bundle it with the upcoming marshmallow update. Sent from my SM-G920R4 using Tapatalk
  15. data roaming deal

    I was also surprised, the Galaxy s6 and above are world phone GSM capable and the nexus phones connect to virtually all networks. It almost makes me feel like it's more of a certification or testing issue than a capability issue. I'll know more tomorrow. Sent from my SM-G920R4 using Tapatalk
