  1. Signal boosting

    I fully feel your pain, however I do believe to have LTE inside then the selection of antennas is quite Limited and with those it is a very niche market and the quality is very good. Even though it will sting your pocket quite a bit it would get the job done. My only other recommendation, which I have done as long as I don't need my phone in my hand, is a Bluetooth headset and have the phone sitting next to a window? Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk

    Sold Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  9. I used this phone for a day, kept it as a reserve or backup, never needed it. It is listed on Swappa (Here) TUSCC members get a better deal! EDIT: cant hyperlink, idk why: https://swappa.com/listing/TZI495/view Pics: Condition: Like brand new, without the sticker holding the box together or the film on the device - other than that, no scratches (not even those hologram/hairline teeny tiny ones) - this thing is mint. It's been in the box since the day after I bought it. Comes with everything, phone, charger, cable, sim card tool, book, box, and I'll personally draw a smiley face on the inside of the box if you want Returns: If you REALLY need a return, let me know. Asking Price: $ 350 (Apple says it's worth $460ish fwiw) via paypal, I will ship it via flat-rate USPS or UPS Ground (your choice no additional cost) and provide tracking. Feel free to make offers, too. If anyone knows how I can provide proof of clean IMEI (like we do with checksum verification?) Idk how to prove that 3rd party. Please PM me with any questions or ask here in the forum!

  11. iPhone 6S+ 64GB Silver *MINT*

    Sounds like a plan, let me know when you can. : ) I'll also entertain Pixel XL and Pixel 2 trades or trades +/- X I have several phones I want to sell but this is my only real "mint" one. The rest are well used and I don't want to sell a potential dud to anyone here (unless you want a dud?) Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  12. ^ that's about your best bet. They have very fundamental differences in the way they look and feel, but he sensually the operation of it is the same. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  13. But it is not bootloader locked until a Verizon sim card is put in it. That's the big key difference. You can root it and put a custom ROM on it all you want but the moment you put that Sim in it can no longer be done. Which...is crazy stupid imo. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  14. Thank you for clarifying! Silly VZW, always throwing wrenches into our well oiled machines... Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  15. Wow... So VZW locks the bootloader when it's activated. That is just pathetic. Does that apply to Google purchased ones or VZW only ones? I imagine both, but just curious. But you COULD unlock it prior to activation and it would stay that way, no? Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  16. I really wonder if you could remove the Verizon SIM card and Flash Factory firmware without putting a SIM card back in at the option would come back. It makes sense that it would but I can also see a scenario where it doesn't because of some deal Verizon has with Google... BS. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  17. Pixel 2?

    This ^^ just call him and lie to them about what it is. It will work. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  18. Note 5 Stock Firmware

    It's already posted in the original post Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  19. S5 contract just ended..unlock?

    It might be but you can call to have them do it for sure. Keep in mind tho it will only work on TMobile (iirc) and only 1 band on TMobile, so it will only actually be like 20% of TMobiles network that it can work on. It won't work at all on VZW, att, or sprint Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  20. OnePlus 5?

    If you get the phone, even with the intention of leaving USCC, you can always call and say it's a Nexus and see if it starts working? I mean... If it has the ability and hardware, there's absolutely no reason it wouldn't - other than the CS rep saying it won't (because they don't know or care) - so try it. If I had one or knew someone with one id gladly do it. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  21. No you don't have to do a factory reset at all just swap the SIM cards out after you give them the IMEI or meid and that's it. Yeah he's full of crap that or he's just dumb enough to believe it... I did exactly the same thing for dozens of lines with the Nexus 6p and 5X. It still amazes me how some of their employees actually think that phone's not designed for their Network would actually crash the the network or do anything other than simply not function. Omg... Lol. But yeah it's very simple. Don't do anything on the phone other than swap the SIM card and that's it, maybe dial *228 after they tell you that they added the phone. But you probably won't have to do that. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  22. Yup just call customer service and activate them that way. That way they never get to see the phone they just get the meid or IMEI and you put the SIM card in and it works. Just say it's a 6P/5X/ Nexus 6. They won't know and it won't matter. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  23. To switch or not

    In total truth - it seems to be a pretty impressive device. All around. The camera, storage, os, etc... Only major exception is the screen resolution, that's pretty garbage IMO for >$1000 - that alone would convince me to skip it. The Galaxy S3 had a higher resolution on a smaller screen. If that isn't important, then there is no other reason it wouldn't be a totally pleasing device. I'm not an iOS fan, either, but given the Android options I'm also somewhat considering iOS. There is only really the Pixel 2, and the price tag on that is not exactly on par with 2017 device spec expectations - meaning there's better devices with lower prices but you sacrifice all the freedom that comes with Pixel.

    It could? Can't hurt to give it a try Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  25. Pictures slowly dissolving from gallery

    It would seem like a SD problem, but you tried others and same result... I have to agree, a phone issue. Although weird, that's what I would suspect. Are you on the latest firmware? Perhaps there was an issue with a previous release or maybe the most current one is causing this? Maybe try a different firmware - but I would strongly recommend calling Samsung and telling them. They may know about it and issue a RMA for you? Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
