  1. Breaking News: Upgrade/Renewal Fee Starting June 29!

    This is false. There is no info anywhere right now about this, and it is impossible for them to be doing this as of the 29th, without letting us know.
  2. Passed down through my grapevine, it looks like US Cellular may be starting throttling data, following in the "Big 4" and thier footsteps. While this may not come as too much of a surprise, an interesting fact I learned today, was that for every 200mb of data used, the company needs to spend $50. That would break out to a lot of money for your 5gb data plan you are maxing out each month. The good news in all of this? It will only affect 2% of customers. Why? Because (for now) they will only start the throttling at users that exceed the 5gb plan. This to me, is no where near as bad as the carriers that do it at 2gb, and in all honesty, with the way the tiered data works, you only pay $10 more for each gb overage, so putting the "speedhat" on 5gbs, seems fair? What do you guys think?
  3. Galaxy S3: Sooner than Later! (UPDATE 2X)

    It's also showing they might be prepared to start giving us phone info much longer before they release the device.
  4. Galaxy S3: Sooner than Later! (UPDATE 2X)

    Fully confirmed, pre orders on June 12, released in July.
  5. Galaxy SIII

    The freeform's ID is not the same, also it is the R351. The closest to it is the Samsung Trill, which was R520.
  6. App to backup ENTIRE phone?

    Yeah, from the actual website play.google.com And from there, you can push install them to your phone, pretty simple.
  7. App to backup ENTIRE phone?

    Google play keeps track of every app you've ever downloaded... so all you would have had to do was go to "My Apps"... And do you really change that many settings that it is a hassle?
  8. NEW Info on the Motorola Electrify 2 post here.

    Yes, unfortunately, but, again, it has nothing to do with US Cellular.
  9. Galaxy SIII

    If it is in the system, its being tested, read the article on the front page!
  10. According to insider sources, the S3 has appeared in US Cellular systems! This, means most likely, the device is in testing, and could be in customer hands by the end of the year! Lets talk about what we know currently.. We know its a Exynos 4212 Quad-core 1.4 GHz, and with the Aviator out already, we know Samsung can make a chipset to use US Cellular's LTE network, so assumption be darned, we should get that processor. We also know, its a Super AMOLED capacitive touchscreen, with 16million colors running at 720 x 1280 pixels, and is 4.8 inches. We know that it has 16/32/64gb of onboard storage (iPhone haters rejoice!) With 1gb of RAM. With a forward facing 1.9mp camera, 8mp rear, Samsungs promise to make the camera better, all the TouchWiz bells and whistles, and a fresh taste of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, we are looking at one of the best phones that we have ever seen from US Cellular. A full run down of specs (For the spec needy!) can be found here. So now the discussion remains... When? Leave a comment below and tell us when YOU think!

  11. Samsung makes an Oops!

    Highly doubt that.
  12. NEW Info on the Motorola Electrify 2 post here.

    I can also confirm is it 3G only.
  13. Samsung makes an Oops!

    This may not be affecting us directly now, but you've got to think we will be getting this phone! Speculation has been flying that the launch of the international version of the Samsung Galaxy S III is going to be delayed. The reason might have something to do with the news from Tweakers.net that 600,000 pebble blue battery covers for the device had to be destroyed by Samsung because they were defective. Originally, the handset was to have a global launch at the end of this month followed by a summertime launch for the the three countries hosting the LTE bversion of the phone: the U.S., Japan and Korea. Of the trio, the U.S.is expected to receive the device next month. A Scandinavian gentleman who pre-ordered the Samsung Galaxy S III, told Reddit that he had received an email telling him that his pebble blue Samsung Galaxy S III has been delayed from the original shipping date of May 29th because the supplier has stopped all deliveries in Scandinavia. "Dear customer, Thank you ordered a Samsung Galaxy SIII Blue Pebble of us. We are sorry to announce that we will not deliver it on release date, which is on 29/5. This is because the supplier has suddenly stopped all deliveries of the blue mobile. This applies to all retailers and operators in Scandinavia, and is not something that only affects CDON.COM . We have tried to maintain a dialogue with the Samsung, but without success. Samsung says that the preliminary shipping date is week 22, but this is unfortunately not something that we are yet to confirm. CDON.COM will compensate all affected customers by sending out a free coupon for the license to Samsung Navigator (value of 599 €). We would again like to emphasize that there are some blue models to Scandinavia before the release, nor any dealer or any operator. We apologize for the inconvenience. Sincerely CDON.CO" Strangely enough, Phandroid received an email from retailer Negri Electronics confirming that there will be a delay in launching the international version of the Samsung Galaxy S III. The strange thing about it is that the email says it is the white version that is going to be released later than expected. "To many, being first is a necessity. To us, it is a requirement. While we do not have great news for our customers, we still anticipate to be the first to carry the Galaxy S III, but the date has been set to the 29th. Our supplier originally gave us a firm date of arrival for the 25th, but has failed to follow through with the promise- putting us in a compromising position with our reputation and name. We anticipate having the Blue, 16GB Galaxy S III before the White. At this time we are not trying to assume a delay from Samsung; but the White is expected to arrive June 1st."-Negri Electronics We are unsure whether or not this delay will affect the launch of the U.S. model. Earlier Friday, we told you that a leak reported by T-Mobile called for a June 20th launch of the phone on that carrier. That matches the date that the Samsung Galaxy S III will launch in Canada according to a leaked ad. And while the phone has already been launched in Dubai and the UAE, only the white version is said to be available. And according to AndroidNZ, a number of carriers and retailers are announcing that their launch of the Samsung Galaxy S III will initially consist of the white model only. Before looking for the tallest building to jump from, we'd suggest waiting to hear Samsung's take on this as there are conflicting stories. Some U.K. retailers are saying that there is no delay at all. Once the Korean based manufacturer weighs in on the story, and you are not happy with their answer, then you can resume looking for skyscrapers. source: Reddit, Tweakers.net (translated), AndroidNZ via TmoNews phonearena.com
  14. If you are waiting for a non-Samsung 4G phone...

    This is 100% Accurate, Samsung has been an amazing parter to US Cellular, Huawei should be releasing one for them as well, but we will not see a moto phone anytime soon.
  15. This, is the Huawei of my people.

    I Don't want to spoil ALL the surprises... YES! This IS a 4G phone
