  1. Thanks for the advice. It was still not working after the dialer so I bailed out. I just have gotten so used to this device running like a top, no matter what I throw at it, that it makes it harder to accept some bumps in the road. On the plus side, after a factory reset, my battery seems to be at the top of its game again. Side note, the restore from cloud really works nice. Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  2. I assume I need root for that no? Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  3. Signed up. Broke LTE. If I switch to 3g data works. Not sure if it's a USCC issue or not. Can't find anyone else with the same issues. However everything else really works decent so far. Might revert back though. Forgot how painful 3g is. Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  4. I tried lying about my address but when I entered my current mobile number the process stopped. On a side note, my wife's new pixel just showed up. Friday I determined that Best Buy wouldn't stand behind it so I called Google. They said they would help me out but since I didn't buy it from the Google Store I would have to mail it in, they'd make sure it was a legitimate pixel then mail the new one. I didn't drop it at USPS till Monday and it shows this one shipped Monday! I am very impressed! Now to call in and see what happens. Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  5. Ahh the Nordiques. Haven't heard them referenced for awhile! Wish I could try out Fi but no go with my area code. Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  6. Yeah no kidding. I've been using the Pixel with absolutely no problem since October. Not sure what the hold up is. Well I'll just massage the truth again I guess. Side Note...Your Penguins cleaned the Blue Jackets clock! Glad to see Torts get creamed. I'm a Canucks fan and his 1 year coaching debacle in Vancouver turned the team downhill and they never recovered.
  7. Does anyone know if USC is knowingly activating the Pixel? My wifes' has developed the microphone issue and I have to send it in for exchange. Just wondering if I still need to call it a N5X when we get the replacement. Sent from my Pixel using Tapatalk
  8. No it's 402-367-xxxx
  9. Did you have an issue with the initial sign up? It won't even accept my number for a transfer.
  10. So after discussing Fi a bit with IR1O I decided to finally sign up. I had to lie about my zip code but then when it asked for the phone number I wanted to use it said it could transfer that number. Has anyone else had this issue when signing up?
  11. I have a proclip holder for the XPE if you are interested. It fits the XPE with the plastic bumper case. However I always had a tpu case on it and it fit just fine too. This is just the phone holder and you would have to buy the appropriate mounting clip from there to fit you vehicle. I had it for about a month before I switched to a 6p. It's in good shape. http://www.proclipusa.com/phone-holders/device/motorola/moto-x-pure-edition/holder-with-tilt-swivel-511788-19913.cmsv?p_leftorright=0
  12. Quick update on the 5" Pixel after 8 days. Battery is still doing great. I've got all but a couple of my normal apps installed. I've been adding them slowly to catch any battery hogs. And so far so good. I'm currently at 11 hours off charge, 2 hrs 6 min SOT and 53% battery. I've settled in at about 25 percent brightness as the ambient sensor does a great job of controlling it when it needs to ramp up. Direct sun is no problem at all. UI is still fast as hell and smooth. Very few app hiccups to speak of. And the ones that have showed a hair of jank are off the beaten path apps that don't get many updates to smooth out bumps. Signal strength is good both cellular and WiFi. I haven't had any bluetooth issues that I've read about. Hooks right up to my Ford Sync every time. BT speakers and my hands free headset works great. Camera is just stupid. So so fast. I took some great pics at my daughter's volleyball game. Handled the action ahots great. And really just awesome pics all around. Anyone on the fence about it ask me any questions you might have.
  13. Also, a quick Pixel update. First full day, I'm at 11 hours off charge, 25% battery, and a few minutes shy of 4 hours SOT. I loaded a bunch of apps this morning and did some other initial set up stuff, was on the road for 3 hours today through some weak signal areas, and had navigation going a couple times for a total of 30-40 minutes. 2 of the 4 hours of SOT was indoors. I have brightness on auto and the slider at around 40% (still got way plenty bright sitting outdoors and in the car) Bluetooth on all day also. So yeah, not bad I don't think. This is more usage then my average day for sure so I feel pretty good about battery life going forward. (until the first android update screws it up!)
  14. Just wanted to throw a quick comment in here about the LG X Power. My daughter had a mishap going down some stairs and it ended up shattering the screen on her nexus 5x. And I mean shattering with shards and all. Anyway, I swung by my awesome small town USC shop today looking for something cheap. He had sold a LG X Power and the guy brought it back 4 days later for a Moto G 4play. (love that name) Anyway it was like new and he sold it for half price ($110) outright. Long story short I am actually pretty impressed. She got all of her normal apps loaded up, including snapchat which seems to be a battery hog. And after 2 hours of SOT in the vehicle on a sunny day (high screen brightness) she was down to 91%. This included a few pretty poor cell areas on the road trip we took today. I played with it for a few minutes when we got home and truthfully, it's a decent experience if you look past lg's UI. Very little lag, decent screen, respectable camera, very light weight, quick charge, expandable storage... Not bad at the normal outright price of 220 let alone 110. Just wanted to throw this on here incase anyone is looking for a budget phone that seems to perform beyond its price tag.
