  1. Hmm. Could be that the other party didn't have one of these compatible devices - which idk so it could be. I can test a S7 to iPhone 6S tomorrow. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  2. I have used an iPhone 6S+ and an S7 on USCC just in the past week, it was no different than using any other phone. I didn't know Sprint had something like hd voice, but uscc sure doesn't. That was just this past weekend. If they had it they would have announced it. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  3. Right, which I mostly expected, but with everyone else (except Sprint) having a HD Voice feature I KINDA hopes uscc did that same. That's more than anything what I had hoped for. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  4. I mean with USCC the VoLTE was nothing like it was with VZW. HD Voice was amazing - and on USCCs VoLTE I didn't notice any difference in call quality or sound improvement. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  5. From my initial findings, having used VoLTE, didnt sound any different (comparing it to VZWs HD Voice) - and using data and voice at the same time isnt something I really ever try to do (or when i do its like once a year) so... VoLTE, to me, seems somewhat of a no-value gimmick. as of right now.
  6. 6.X Samsung disabled that iirc due to the issues with the Note 7 Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  7. What tutorial? Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  8. It's in USCCs hands. I actually checked just a couple hours ago and it was still on 6.0.1 from Samsung. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  9. I would call their CS number and explain the situation and that you hate that you have to switch, and ask if they can work with you. In my opinion they will probably let you return the phones, and not make you pay an ETF if you play the sorrow ard hard enough.
  10. Exactly. That's what I would do in that case. Then if you ever do leave uscc that phone will work wherever you go. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  11. Well, since uscc is still stuck in 2005 you have to call and tell them the MEID (which is the IMEI without the last number) - and the last 10 digits of the sim you're using. Which sucks, but isn't too hard. If they ask what phone it is just say "Nexus 6" instead of "Verizon Nexus 6" or similar, don't give them any information that will break their heads because that will only complicate it and frustrate you. If it's a Pixel, say it's a Nexus, we've seen a few cases where that isn't a term in their script so...their head breaks and suddenly you're trying to activate Satan's phone... Sorry for the little rant but I used to manage a 100+ line company's account with uscc and anytime YOU know it works but they don't, don't even risk them getting confused, in their system ANY phone that isn't specifically purchased at uscc is in the system as COE (customer owned equipment) - so make/model/brand is of absolutely NO importance, be vague, don't give info unless requested. On that note, all they'll ask for is your account, verify you, you say you want to activate a different phone on X line, they ask what it is, you say (for example) an S7, they'll ask for the MEID and sim number (always ask if you can "begin after the 80900" - every uscc sim starts with "89015 80900") that is all they need. Then they'll put it in the system, you put the sim in the phone and boot it up, dial *228 (not actually necessary anymore, but for whatever reason they ask you to do it) - viola. Written out it sounds like a PITA, and it is, I've done it hundreds of times, often more than once a day, but it's quick and mostly painless - and again, if you don't want to make it confusing or if you have trouble, let me know, I have connections at uscc and can skip the crap - if you catch any - and just put it on the account no questions asked.

  12. Now, I can say for sure that the following can be bought anywhere (including "unlocked" from Amazon, eBay, etc) and WILL work on USCC just fine; Nexus 6 Nexus 5X Nexus 6P Pixel Pixel XL iPhone 5S, 6, 6S, 7* Moto X Pure (any Gen iirc)* Samsung S7, S7 Edge, S8, S8 Plus* *You can buy the "unlocked" version of these phones from the manufacturer or 3rd party sites, and they will work on USCC. As long as it's a US based phone (not the "international" model) it will work, even if it's branded for another carrier or no branding at all. It absolutely does NOT have to be uscc branded if it's in the list above. I'm probably forgetting some, but for the most part if it's not a GSM only device it will work. GSM-only dedicated devices​, ie the Nokias, Sony, etc, will not work for the reason you just experienced, they lack the hardware (or bands) to properly function on USCCs network. Also, if you find one and you're unsure, just ask us, there's a REALLY good chance were smarter than the store people and Customer Service reps. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  13. Technically speaking, it can, but not the WHOLE network. It's stupid they say that, but this is directly from Motorolas spec sheet It connects to their cellular (voice/sms) netowrk just fine, but it doesnt have the hardware to connect to the LTE bands. sorry, man. Been there before, i hate that crap.
  14. From what I'm seeing it's mostly a GSM only phone - witch has most compatibility with VZWs network, but not all, leading to users of it having some issues. So, no, i dont think so, the phone lacks the hardware to connect to USCC's network in full.
  15. It's so BS that they prioritize certain devices when nearly all of them are VoLTE capable. Just my initial thought. Stupid, and somewhat pointless to launch something when you weren't DONE MAKING IT WORK. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
