  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. May Software Update

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

    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.
  5. Well, the article says they are only asking $500 for the whole thing. We could take up a collection.
  6. Second Charger

    Thanks for the resources. So it sounds like getting the right cable is key. Any advice on the power supply?
  7. 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?
  8. 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
  9. Well this might be of interest. https://www.hackread.com/hacker-selling-126-million-us-cellular-customers-data/

    Thanks, both of us appreciate it :-)

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

    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.

    Got mine Monday. So far so good. You can blame USC on the updates as much as LG.

    They had one at the AT&T store. Feels nice, not as unwieldy as the 6P. Got my local agent store setting one aside for me when they get them.
  15. Black Friday 2016

    Too soon? Any hints on this year's Black Friday?
