  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. 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
  5. 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
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. Good equivalent of the Moto X Pure

    Sorry guys, my wife is on big blue (ATT), I have no idea if it works with uscc (and I no longer have a uscc active sim to try. According to their website the g4+ is the last phone they made that was carrier unlock and worked on uscc Edit, looking on moto forums they confirm the g5+ will not work on uscc, even though bands match up Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  10. Good equivalent of the Moto X Pure

    I would also take into account security updates, I doubt your pure will get a fix for the latest wifi and Bluetooth vulnerabilities, while a newer phone will. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  11. Don't buy it through Verizon as it will have a locked bootloader and some bloat. If recent news with the nexus 6P return fiasco is any indication, get it through Google store or project fi to ensure the best support if you have any issues in the future. Project fi is offering with a Google Home mini for the same price as the Google store for what it's worth. I'm also a convert from USCC to project fi, I totally recommend it! I'm on the same USCC network I always was, but now I have actual roaming, and it's cheaper. I don't see a reason to stick with uscc other than phone selection and maybe if you use a lot of data.

  12. Good equivalent of the Moto X Pure

    My wife had a moto g4+ until the battery failed, so I got her the g5+ as a replacement. She loves it! It's snappy, battery life is terrific, and the fit and finish is pretty good. I think the camera on her g4 took better pictures, but it's passable. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  13. Can Moto X be unlocked?

    Throw lineage OS on her s7, it will be great hardware with simple software that almost matches the moto stuff Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  14. ROM 8.0.0 KLTE Lineage 15.0

    My S5 is my bathroom facebook phone now that I have a 6p on FI. I still update it every week lol. I will put oreo on it once haggertk says it's ready Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  15. S5 contract just ended..unlock?

    Also, this forum is volunteers, not actually employees Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  16. S5 contract just ended..unlock?

    Unfortunately the S5 was made in over 20 models that were pretty network dependent. Network unlocking won't help you if you have the G900R4, and if you mean bootloader it's already unlocked. International was always unlocked Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  17. My wife has a stock moto x, we ultimately stopped using it and bought a new phone because of this issue. Formatting and all other tricks I found didn't work. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  18. USC Roaming Issues...

    Last time I was in Crivitz (several months ago) service was actually a little better than previous years on my S5, but still unreliable to hold a data connection where I stay north of town. I'll have to check it out next time I'm up there with my project fi phone. I don't see mention online of a falling out Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  19. New update today! EDIT: NOUGAT IS HERE!!!!

    Mrlee, try manually updating play services from apkmirror.Com, Google fixed some of the Bluetooth issues through a play services update, it may not have been pushed to your device yet. You'll need to enable installation from unknown locations, but i trust that site Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  20. Data during phone calls

    S5 was the last Samsung to do a separate antenna Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  21. Take the plunge

    I noticed I'm mainly on uscc towers or sprint, but uscc has the best speeds. I'm surprised you have bad signal on uscc towers, but it's all about where you are I guess Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  22. Take the plunge

    Been using my 6p on fi for the last week... It's pretty great. Same signal as my S5 had, but have the advantage of being able to leave southern Wisconsin and keep signal! Just hope I don't get the battery bug Sent from my SM-G900R4 using Tapatalk
  23. LG V20

    Growing..... On you? [emoji23] Sent from my SM-G900R4 using Tapatalk
  24. The Samsung website says for us carrier versions you have to go to the carrier. If us cellular won't do anything... And neither will Samsung... I don't know. You could always try shaming them on facebook, but if they dog in and don't want to refund because of the imei mismatch... There are tutorials online for changing the imei number in software, can you try that and make it match the physical device? This is not strictly legal, but what have you got to lose, and you're not in the USA anyway Sent from my SM-G900R4 using Tapatalk
  25. [SOLD] Google Pixel

    I cache a lot of music on my device for travel on airplanes, how much space do you have open on a fresh flash? Sent from my SM-G900R4 using Tapatalk
