  1. Yes, that's what I'm on and it worked fine for me. Sent from my SM-G935R4 using Tapatalk
  2. The AT&T unlimited ads says right at the bottom they throttle at 22GB. Sent from my SM-G935R4 using Tapatalk
  3. It's not the connection fee, it's the monthly fee for the line. They'll burn ya, believe me. Sent from my SM-G935R4 using Tapatalk
  4. You'll be charged $20/month more for a phone purchased straight out at Wal-Mart. USC charges $40/M for those lines, but gives you a $20/M discount when you finance a phone through them. In the end, it's the same amount to finance through USC. Plus, you can pay the phone off with USC whenever you want and your contract ends and then goes month to month.

  5. They are rooting nougat over on XDA, but the system becomes unstable. Things are looking up though! Sent from my SM-G935R4 using Tapatalk
  6. Wouldn't it depend on the purchase date? Most warranties don't begin until the device is first activated and registered. The same as it would be for a major appliance or a new car. Sent from my SM-G935R4 using Tapatalk
  7. I found that number to be a bit inflated myself, but that's what the article stated. It was on the internet so it has to be true! Sent from my SM-G935R4 using Tapatalk
  8. According to Android Central, with 7.1 installed you will be left with 23 GB of usable storage. They report that Google Assistant alone takes up 5.9 GB. It's actually almost 1 GB less than the Galaxy S7/S7 Edge has remaining with just the stock ROM and TouchWiz installed.
  9. I think it was mentioned earlier that they will throttle any line once it reaches 22 GB. I'm too lazy to go back and look though. Sent from my SM-G935R4 using Tapatalk
  10. I haven't noticed any difference on mine. I have the Edge; same hardware. Sent from my SM-G935R4 using Tapatalk
  11. Yeah, they really take the fun out of the whole "open source" idea. I realize somethings need to be proprietary in order to keep the features that make each manufacturer's devices special, but when they lock down the device they lose the freelance input and expertise.

  12. 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
  13. I've tried everything short of restoring the stock image and nothing works. I did get some help over at XDA, but I'm no better off. I'm going to restore to the stock tomorrow and try again. Also, I've attached this screenshot that shows what FlashFire says when opened. Yeah, I need to charge my battery now. G'night all! Sent from my SM-G935R4 using Tapatalk
  14. This is the weirdest thing I've encountered when rooting a device. Sent from my SM-G935R4 using Tapatalk
  15. Sorry, I did not mean to post this in multiple threads.
  16. I just finished this process from XDA, but when I open FlashFire it says I do not have root. I did not update the SU binary after opening the SuperSU app per the OP's instructions, but the version is 2.79 instead of the required 2.76. Anyone else run into this issue when rooting? Sent from my SM-G935R4 using Tapatalk
  17. I just went through the process on XDA and FlashFire says I did not have root. When I looked at the SuperSU settings it showed version 2.79, not 2.76 as stated in the thread and the downloaded file. I did as instructed and ignored the "supersu binary needs updated" when opening the app. Anyone else run into this? Sent from my SM-G935R4 using Tapatalk
  18. Also, the version of TW on the S7 Edge is the best yet and it will only get better when nougat comes along. People can knock Sammy all they want, but there are those of us who simply love what they offer. Now if they'd only lighten up on the whole bootloader thing. Sent from my SM-G935R4 using Tapatalk
  19. My wife just upgraded to a Note 5 32GB (plenty of storage for her) at Wal-Mart for only $74 and my daughter upgraded to an iPhone 7 plus 128GB in rose gold for only $328. We asked the sales associate why USCC is allowing Wal-Mart to sell discounted upgrades, but they don't in their own stores. He said he didn't know but T-Mobile made them stop selling discounted upgrade devices and they can only sell those on installment plans growth T-Mobile. Just a thought if you're due an upgrade on one of your lines and don't want the payments. Selection is slim, at least at my local Wal-Mart, but it's an option that may disappear soon. He also mentioned they may begin selling Google Pixels, but I'll believe that when it happens. Sent from my SM-N910R4 using Tapatalk
  20. We actually made out better switching to a shared plan a while back. We have 5 lines. Sent from my SM-G935R4 using Tapatalk
  21. This is actually not a great deal. USCC gives you a $20 per line discount when you get the phone from their stores, but not from franchise or the Wal-Mart type sites. I ended up getting the S7 Edge and my bill only went up $6 due to financing the phone. The USCC associate probably thought I was getting mad at them and I explained it's not them personally, it's the company because they stick one in ya either way you go; either you finance through them or they charge you $20/month because you won't. All the employees looked at me shaking their heads in agreement and what felt like embarrassment from hearing this so often. It's pretty bad when your own employees realize your screwing people and they can't do anything to change it for you. Sent from my SM-G935R4 using Tapatalk
  22. Honestly, when I could switch to AOSP or CM based roms, I always ended up back on TW within days. Once you get TW rooted and debloated it runs very well. Nova launcher makes the biggest difference for me. Sent from my SM-G935R4 using Tapatalk
  23. Well, in the end I went with the S7 Edge and I am extremely happy! Now to sit down at the laptop tomorrow and get to rooting; well as much rooting as I can. Sent from my SM-G935R4 using Tapatalk
  24. Well now I see there isn't s**t for development with the S7 or edge variant either. Root and Xposed are better than nothing though. Swyped from My LG V20, Using Tapatalk
  25. Yeah Bornx, I feel you're right. Luckily I just found out I can take this back to my USC corporate store and by an S7 from Wal-Mart for $48 straight up, with a new 2 year contract. This phone is nice, but not having something as little as AdAway is driving me nuts! I may even go for the S7 edge for a larger screen and battery; plus the side screen use, which is similar to this phone's "extra screen", which is very useful. Also, I feel the nav bar takes away from the screen itself. The S7 will get nougat soon as well. So there's that. Swyped from My LG V20, Using Tapatalk
