  1. They really need to train everyone. When I went in they confirmed that call forwarding is not available with prepaid. Works out cheaper for us the way I ended up doing it. Have the number forwarded to my Google voice number and then that rings on my normal device. I have the texts forwarded as well. Just now to figure out how to reply to either and have the third line number shown to others... Text and calls.. without having to carry two devices
  2. Got the prepaid with a number I was satisfied with. Problem with prepaid, no features like call forwarding!! So I had prepaid for a whole 2 days then we went in and made it the third line on our account and at the same time they wouldn't do it as we had a shared data plan and supposedly they are obsolete so we had to go on one of these new plans. Not to happy about it but we will see.
  3. So I can take one of our old phones in, activate it on a prepaid plan then the next day port it over to Google voice? That would be so awesome. Wonder of there was a way to check a numbers availability without having to go in... Hmmf
  4. I have a prepaid question... How long do you need to keep a prepaid plan before you can port that number out? Why am I asking... well.. I am wanting to get a local number and then port that to my google voice. or is there another provider that I can do this with that may be cheaper than USCellular.... google voice doesn't have any local numbers and I am the new commander at my american legion post and I would like to have a local number for contact purposes for legion business....
  5. I wish Verizon has a way for you to trial with a Sim to test signal in say a days travel without actually changing over to them....
  6. Ouch!!!!! We pay $126 for two lines on a shared plan now. The same at Verizon will run us $104... Well at least two months ago it would have. Not sure with the rip offs happening now..
  7. Is that with USCellular or Verizon? With all this crap with USCellular misleading so called unlimited plans that are best suited for those who don't use data we will never switch to it. Now our plans for Verizon also do not include unlimited data. Just to much crap with it. Now put all the fine print out first and don't go back on anything well then that might turn us. Funny how partner discount supposedly is only applied on the data part but now with unlimited data you can't use that discount.. another garbage play by either company. I know switching our current plan to the same equivalent plan at Verizon would drop our bill by just over $20.00.... just the silly contract or phone bs with USCellular is keeping us from leaving now.
  8. USCellular also has a military/veterans discount which is also 15% the last time I checked. But for us we can't piggy back discounts so my wife's 17% partner discount it is. When we make the big red switch my work has a 22% partner discount with big red so we will be using that.
  9. I saw one of those new s8's yesterday. The first thing that came to mind, Apple clone... Narrow bodied device like iPhones, fingerprint reader like iPhone, on and on.. Not impressed.
  10. Could the iPhones not being throttled be that they are iPhones? Back when uscc was blocking tethering they couldn't stop iPhones from tethering, only the Android devices. Maybe this inability to throttle the iPhones is similar? Just thinking out loud
  11. Well I just went to the USCellular site and at the bottom on the page that tells about these new plans it says unlimited will be at SD speeds and then throttled to 2g speeds at 22 GB of use. The 2 & 6 GB plans will be at HD speeds then I believe they drop to 2g speeds once they got the 2 or 6 GB limits. What a joke. Got to rip customers off some way they can..
  12. If you are connected to WiFi I thought you could still be on a call and use the web. But the thing is that you must be on WiFi.
  13. I have begun making the folders and grouping, pure silliness if you ask me. Anyone know how to go back other than constantly having to go home? Should every app have a means to go back and I am not seeing it yet? Also some games I notice with ios do not have an exit game whereas their Android equivalent does have an exit game. I must say battery life so far is amazing! Spent 2.5 hours on it last night and left it off the charger overnight and I still had 98% charge left! Will be interesting when I am done getting it set up fully what battery life we get.
  14. Okay so I took the dive and now have a brand new iPad tablet. Any iPad or iPhone users here that can tell me how to get a clutter free home screen? I am putting apps into folders but that seems excessive. Is there really no way to customize this thing like you can an Android with a pretty much blank home screen? Oh and is there a way to decrease the spacing of the icons?
  15. Adam you around? Still working for Apple? Any deals? I really hate to say this but with our son getting into the apple stuff at school and eventually having an ipad from the school system and then a macbook I am thinking of leaning that way now to learn ios instead of having my son show me up... I am about fed up with windows computers for home use as well as this one has the stupid updates all the stinking time and that is annoying having to wait on updates... I have never seen an os update like windows does. That is why I used linux for the longest and only have windblows now as the wife I couldn't fully sway to the linux side... Thanks everyone. I appreciate the input. I will still be looking for more input... Haven't pulled the plug yet.
