  1. You don't have to switch the SIM cards, but they will need the SIM card ID number along with the IMEI. The SIM number is printed on the card, and also (on Android at least) found in the About Phone section near the IMEI. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  2. You have to call US Cellular or go in to a store to provide them with the device's IMEI/MEID first, you can't just swap the SIM and do *228. They have to register the IMEI on their system along with the SIM ID number before a *228 will work.
  3. Yeah, things got screwy with Samsung phones back around the S5/S6 as far as rooting goes, I've been advising people against them ever since if they want to tinker with modding phones. It is sad to see all these old sites going the way of the dinosaur. The end of an era. Hell, these days I only root my Pixel XL for Substratum theming, and only because Pie won't allow me to use Andromeda (rootless Substratum).

  5. HD Calling (VoLTE) with google pixel XL

    Does USCC have VoLTE in your area? Edit: This post from a few weeks ago indicates that in a place where USCC's VoLTE works on the S7, it does not work on the Pixel XL. It's probably not possible for you at this time, but you could always try calling USCC to find out. I wish you luck finding a CS rep who actually knows what they're talking about regarding this kind of thing!
  6. Roaming

    Nope, there is no way to get extra roaming data with USCC. i'm not an employee btw, but I'm not sure any of them come here anymore.
  7. Hey y'all. The Oreo update is officially rolling out to US Cellular S8 and S8+ devices today. No word yet on a download link to manually update, so you'll have to rely on checking for the update on your phone for now. Have fun mashing that update button! https://www.androidpolice.com/2018/05/16/galaxy-s8-galaxy-s8-get-android-8-0-oreo-upgrade-us-cellular/ Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  8. Sounds like it's either a hardware issue or a design flaw. I'd recommend returning it on warranty while you can and we if a replacement does the same thing. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  9. I switched to Verizon: Explanation

    I highly recommend Project Fi. While it's limited to Nexus and Pixel devices, it uses Sprint, T-Mobile, and USCC networks, and relatively seamlessly. Plus it's $20/mo for unlimited talk and text, then $10/GB. My bill is usually less than $30 per month if I'm smart about my data usage, but still pretty reasonably priced if I use more than normal. I've got service in all the places that I did on USCC, plus rural areas that are covered by Sprint, and T-Mobile is pretty good in larger cities. Just my 2¢ Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  10. Moto E4 Plus stock rom

    First of all, we are not in any way associated with US Cellular. We are not employees, and US Cellular does not monitor these forums. We are simply customers of US Cellular who like to tinker with our phones. I looked around for you on XDA and didn't see any firmware matching your requested version. It seems that Lenovo isn't releasing official firmware for people to download, so you'll likely have to use a firmware package that some user made himself. Wish I could be more help, but maybe someone else has this phone and can chime in Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk

  14. Question about Google Fi

    Project Fi works very well in Vegas And yeah, there was a way to like posts on here. Now you can only do it if you use Tapatalk, it's somehow missing from the web version. I bet Adam took it with him... Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk

  19. Oreo Updates

    Never forget Samsung's motto: "We give you last year's OS and you pay us!" I came up with an analogy (all by myself!): Samsung is to software as Apple is to hardware. Current enough for the average consumer, but excruciatingly outdated for power users. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk

  23. Roaming issue

    That would not work. Flashing a ROM to a device will not change its model number, and will not affect network connection either. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  24. Android 4.4.2 - How to root?

    Sorry bud, it's just not possible. Not only will US Cellular not allow you to use it on their prepaid, but it literally doesn't have the hardware radios to function properly on other carriers, so they won't allow you to use it either. Here are the radio specifications for the SM-N900R4: NETWORK/BEARER: SIM Single WiFi Only No SIM card size Micro-SIM (3FF) Network 2G, 3G, 4G/LTE 2G GSM 2G CDMA: CDMA800, USPCS1900 3G UMTS 3G CDMA : BC0(800), BC1(1900) 4G LTE 4G LTE FDD : B2(1900), B4(AWS), B5(850), B12(700), B17(700)
  25. Android 4.4.2 - How to root?

    Well, I have some bad news. The SM-N900R4 is a US Cellular variant, and won't be activated on Sprint, AT&T, or Verizon prepaid. This is not the phone you want for anything but US Cellular post-paid service.
