  1. Moto X4 compatible with U.S. Cellular

    As a former uscc subscriber that now uses FI, I haven't looked back. It's the same great uscc service with actual roaming. There are rare times when it gets stuck on a bad tower, but I use the fi switch app to move it. Not a huge deal to me Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  2. I switched to Verizon: Explanation

    I agree, it's got the best coverage in most areas because it combines 3 services. The only time it'set me down is where all 3 are roaming and only a specific single carrier works My bills are about $30 Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  3. Guide to install custom ROM(s)

    Not sure which file you have linked there slim, but lineage has their own SU add on on their website, I would recommend that instead Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  4. Roaming issue

    If it is not a model US992 it will not work reliably or at all. No software will change the hardware From a quick Google search there is only one model that starts with US Have you tried factory resetting the phone? Frankly if it's used I would blow away the firmware and flash an official rom for security anyway Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  5. Question about Google Fi

    Totally agree with above. I'm on FI, use the fi switch app when it gets a stuck on sprint, and love the service. At least in Wisconsin, it's like being on uscc but cheaper and actually has roaming. My bills are in the 30 dollars range as well Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  6. You'll likely get better help over at XDA-Developers as well. The user base here is not what it used to be, and that's an older phone too Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  7. Moto X4 compatible with U.S. Cellular

    I use this as well, with a toggle in the notification shade to quickly switch when one network isn't responding well. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  8. Phone to buy for ~$150-$200?

    doo-doo my bad, I think I even commented in that thread! Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  9. Phone to buy for ~$150-$200?

    http://www.androidpolice.com/2017/11/21/deal-alert-moto-g5-plus-32gb-169-99-60-off-amazon/ Can't beat that deal! Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  10. Phone to buy for ~$150-$200?

    Used Nexus 6P is under $200, new battery (you'll likely need it at some point) is $15. Great camera, great phone, works on USCC Moto G4 is nice too, but I couldn't find a reliable battery replacement when my wife's failed My S5 is still going strong as a wifi toy, good luck finding something that bullet proof in your price range unfortunately Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk Edit: should mention there is a chance of bootloops with the 6P... It's a risk I was willing to take
  11. T-Mobile Coming to Iowa

    I've never had luck on either carrier in Crivitz (well, a few miles north of it anyway). Can't remember what speeds were in town. Voice has gotten, better speeds have not Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  12. Hardware Problems Worth Fixing?

    Have you considered the Nexus 6P? You can get one on swappa for $200,and if the battery fails it sounds like you have the technical ability to replace it. It's a great phone, and I'm pretty sure you'll have no issue activating it Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  13. T-Mobile Coming to Iowa

    I go up to Ashland and iron river often, and I'm much happier on FI than I was on USCC, for what it's worth. I agree the 2G speeds suck, but I'm connected more often than I used to be and can actually make calls and send texts But if you're liking unlimited, FI probably isn't for you anyway Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  14. Received SMS messages split up

    I can force my texting app to not convert to mms. When I was on uscc I had issues with mms when roaming or bad signal, and many older roms had problems with mms as well. I agree though, help the person sending to you change their phone settings, it's the only way Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  15. Moto X4 compatible with U.S. Cellular

    Stanley has a great summary of project Fi. It is a cellular carrier, and it's limited to Google phones and the moto x4 right now. If you use one of those phones.. I think it's a much better service. For my data usage it's cheaper, has features like visual voicemail and wifi calling, and the other 2 networks fill in the dead/roaming areas well But it is very limited in which phones you can use! Keep that in mind if you ever want to switch phones to a non pixel or nexus phone Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
