  1. 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
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. 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

  8. 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

  13. 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 Current enough for the average consumer, but excruciatingly outdated for power users.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

  17. 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
  18. 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)
  19. 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.
  20. Android 4.4.2 - How to root?

    First off, welcome to Team US Cellular! You're going to need to provide us with a lot more information before we can help you. But here's a few things, as well as a couple of questions to get us started: Verizon is a CDMA carrier too, just like US Cellular and Sprint. These carriers use CDMA for 1x and 3G, but use GSM for 4G (which is what the SIM card is for) You don't have to activate any device on any network to get root access. What do you mean by dual-band phone? Flashing a Verizon ROM to a US Cellular device will make it not work properly. If it's a US Cellular device, you won't get full network functionality on ANY other carrier. Simply flashing a ROM for a Verizon Note 3 will not make it compatible with Verizon's network. This goes for any carrier. That's just not how it works. Is it a US Cellular variant of the Note 3? What is the model number? What carrier are you trying to activate it on?
  21. Non US Cellular ROM

    See my response to your other post.
  22. Question about Google Fi

    I am also on Fi, and I love it. I joined after USCC became a network option, and now I have the same service as I did with USCC, plus I have Sprint in most areas where I used to be roaming (or had very poor connection in rural areas) on USCC, plus T-Mobile which is faster than Sprint if I'm in a big city. It's really pretty perfect. My bill is about $35-40/month max, sometimes even under $25 if I don't use data very much -- one month my bill was $20.50! I get the same speeds on USCC's network through Project Fi as I did when I had USCC's service. Sprint and T-Mo are also zippy. I wouldn't recommend Fi for anyone who uses more than 4 or 5GB per month, as this would cost $60 or $70, respectively. But if your data usage is like mine, 1-2GB/month on average, and you have access to WiFi most of the time, then it's definitely worth it.
  23. I wish you luck. man. I've never even seen a G3, and have even less knowledge of its modding quirks. All I know is that Bump is a thing, and that's the extent of it. Hopefully someone around here remembers enough about the device to help you out. I would also suggest posting in the ROM thread, wherever you got it, about this issue. Someone there may know more and be able to help you. Good luck bud
  24. What do you mean by "all lg flash tools throw a fit"?
  25. Moto e4

    It's a very cheap phone, so it's probably not great. That said, I've read that it's a decent phone for the price. You get what you pay for, basically. Keep your expectations low and you won't be let down Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
