  1. Oreo on V20?

    I'll believe it when I see it, but: https://www.androidauthority.com/lg-g6-lg-g5-lg-v20-oreo-update-859628/
  2. drAPN_N

    So got a message today that this drAPN_N updated on my phone. Anyone have a clue what it is? It shows up with all the pre-installed software like Amazon Underground. I see some oblique references to it on the internet, but nothing clearly describing what it is. Thanks.
  3. On my wife's Galaxy S7, for about the last week or so, she keeps getting this odd request about taking part in an "amazon rewards event" with a URL from "play.yourmobile.club" She is smart enough to know not to click on the offer, but it comes up every couple days. I tried googling these terms, and am only given sites that want to sell me software to remove it from a PC, very suspicious. I don't see any suspicious looking apps on her phone, so I'm thinking it might be something in Chrome I've had her install Firefox Focus, and I have asked here to keep an eye on her browsing behavior so we can figure out exactly what is triggering it. I'm tempted to have her factory refresh it, but since that is a PITA, If/when it happens again, we will try for a screen shot and will post it. I thought I would see if anyone here has run into this. Thanks, John.
  4. Get AppleCare?

    iR10, thanks for that, but it doesn't tell me the advantage of getting "device protection" from usc, or specifically "device Protection+" Even this page is confusing. The googling you recommend compares AppleCare+ to standard AppleCare So my casual research has found that device protection + would be $12 per month (so $360 for the 30 month term), plus $99 for major damage. Applecare+ would be $129, and $99 per replacement (can be done twice) for two years. The difference I saw was that the device protection+ plan includes theft replacement. Seems like Applecare+ is the more affordable option.
  5. Get AppleCare?

    Got my son a new iPhone 7 today. They wanted to sell me the device protection plan, and tried to explain how it worked with AppleCare. Just made it more confusing. I have had some less than great experiences with the USC Device Protection plan, so I normally turn it down, and I turned it down again for this. But I am considering getting AppleCare for it, since I have had good experiences with AppleCare in the past. Can anyone explain how they work together, if it is worth getting both, or if it is worth getting AppleCare. Thanks, John.
  6. May Software Update

    Downloaded and installed a software update this evening. Besides security, anyone know of anything interesting in this build?
  7. LG V20

    I have had mine for a while. I found it handy to get one of the pop sockets to help in the handling of the larger phone.
  8. Well, the article says they are only asking $500 for the whole thing. We could take up a collection.
  9. Second Charger

    Thanks for the resources. So it sounds like getting the right cable is key. Any advice on the power supply?
  10. Second Charger

    This is my first USB-C phone, and I read all this stuff about bad cords/chargers destroying phones. What have people bought for a second charger/cord for their V20?
  11. Someone on their Facebook page asked about it. Got this response: We are aware of these claims and investigating them. We always take our customers’ privacy seriously, and your trust is very important to U.S. Cellular. ^Andria
  12. Well this might be of interest. https://www.hackread.com/hacker-selling-126-million-us-cellular-customers-data/
  13. LG V20

    Thanks, both of us appreciate it :-)
  14. LG V20

    No worries. Took this long to notice. It will just be for like two people anyway :-)
  15. LG V20

    Not sure why they never created a forum for the V20. I've had one since November 2016. No concerns, holds up well. Running the Quad audio feature does seem to hit the battery harder than I would prefer, but other than that it has remained solid in performance and features so far. FWIW, I'm running it stock, so I can't speak to how well it responds to different roms.
