  1. Phone to buy for ~$150-$200?

    Wasn't it determined the G5 plus doesn't work on USC?
  2. OnePlus 5T or Razer Compatible?

    I think the problem you'll run into is that neither phone has the necessary CDMA bands to make them compatible. (This is just a guess though, someone with more knowledge might add in)
  3. According to this: https://www.motorola.com/us/carrier-compatibility - I'd say probably not. Which is odd since the X4 is also supposed to have a version that supports Google Fi and USC supports that.... EDIT: That said, you may be able to get them to activate it as a Moto X Pure, but it would be an expensive experiment.
  4. Good equivalent of the Moto X Pure

    One other thought - Save yourself $50 and go with the 32GB version since the G5's are expandable with microSD cards.
  5. Good equivalent of the Moto X Pure

    "On paper" they appear to be very similar. My wife also has the Moto X 2015 (with a slowly failing battery), and I've also thought about getting one of the G5s. Should have bought when they had the $50 off the newer G5s a couple of weeks ago. Specs compare: https://www.phonearena.com/phones/compare/Motorola-Moto-G5-Plus,Motorola-Moto-X-Pure-Edition-2015,Motorola-Moto-G5S-Plus/phones/10398,9694,10597
  6. Can Moto X be unlocked?

    There are a couple of first gen USC compatible Moto X(s) for sale on Swappa: https://swappa.com/buy/moto-x-uscellular
  7. Thanks @RMarkwald for providing these each update, and for providing the how-to. Ironically, I think Google is also done with the N6 as of this month, so I suppose we'll let you "off the hook" for providing updates.
  8. Sounds like the newer build (N8I11B) is supposed to have some Verizon specific code. Other than that they are basically the same builds. On another note, thanks again for making these.
  9. Used a little of my "google-fu", and came across this thread with a link to an app that might fix: https://forum.xda-developers.com/android/software-hacking/disable-optmising-app-message-boot-t3570619 I remember the dreaded "optimizing app" days... Hope this helps
  10. Moving to no coverage area

    We recently moved out of the USC coverage area and had about 6 months before one of the contacts ran out. I explained to CS the situation, and they did not charge any ETF.
  11. My wife and I will be moving to the Fort Collins / Loveland area which (I'm pretty sure) puts of out of USC coverage. Anybody have any suggestions on good service in that area?
  12. I was thinking about T-Mobile. Isn't TMO using USC towers to extend their coverage now?
  13. Data during phone calls

    I might be wrong, but I think the switch to LTE data vs 3G might be the cause of no data during a call. My area just got LTE in the last couple of years, and I was able to use both before that.
  14. Tablet questions recommendations

    Not to "de-rail" your tablet search, but have you ever tried PhoenixOS? It's based on 5.1 and runs pretty well. Over at XDA (the evil site....) there is a cleaned up version with Google account / gapps / root baked in. https://forum.xda-developers.com/nexus-7/general/phoenix-os-nexus-7-grouper-t3299266
  15. As always, thanks again for your quick work!!!
  16. **WARNING - Flashing, Hacking, or otherwise modifying your phone can break it!!** That said - I managed to capture the Stagefright OTA update for the Moto X and did a little "tweaking" on it to allow for TWRP flashing. I've uploaded both versions to the TUSC server for others to use. IMPORTANT NOTES: This update also flashes an updated bootloader, modem files, kernel, along with other updates.

  20. Thanks for the quick boot-img rework!!!!
  21. Still Have N6?

    I'm a bit of a "flash-aholic" and with MultiROM on the N6 (part of why I got one) it's quick and easy!!!
  22. Still Have N6?

    Funny you ask... I just picked one up off eBay for $140 that ended up being in a factory sealed box!!! I had always wanted a "Nexus" device to mess with and my Moto X 2014 was starting to have battery issues. So yes, you can count me as using it as my DD.
  23. Activating Unlocked G4 Play

    I think (he's) talking about the Moto G4 Play. Is it possible since it is sold as a "Pre-Paid Plan" device, they won't activate it as COE on a standard plan?
  24. EDIT: XT1093 ROM Uploaded and Ready!!! Here's instructions to get Marshmallow on our "forgotten" Moto X 2014 phones. I referenced a ROM for the Verizon XT1096 on XDA.
