  1. Interested to see how much it throttles. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  2. Even if one of the lines hits 22GB, it would only be that specific line that gets hit with whatever the "penalty" is too.
  3. It's 22GB a line, not total. Just Like Verizon's plan. Except once you hit that 22 Verizon might depreciate you, instead of straight up throttle. But I'll be interested to see what USCC does if it is a straight up throttle or maybe a depreciation.
  4. I think that's what he's trying to do, but even though his intentions might be pure, it's been so long since the phone was recalled I doubt anything is going to happen. Yet again, one of the downsides of buying both a used phone, but a used phone that was not meant to be used internationally.
  5. I mean, I wish you all the best, but I don't know that there's much I can think of for you to try. You bought a local regional US phone and are using it internationally. I really doubt that Samsung, or even US Cellular, are going to honor any "warranty" on said phone because you bought a regional US phone, not international. I really doubt anything is going to come from it. I obviously feel bad for you because it sucks to lose money, but since a regional phone was taken internationally I doubt you're going to get much luck past asking Samsung/US Cellular nicely and hoping you get a rep on a good day.
  6. You might be able to through like Square Trade or something.
  7. If that. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  8. I was going to say. Verizon is per line. Not account. This wouldn't make sense. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  9. Which is stupid as hell. Sent from my Nexus 6P using Tapatalk
  10. Then I apologize. I misread.
  11. Wrong. Partially. Deprioritization =/= throttling. It isn't, and never will be. Please stop saying it is lol. I know you and I have our personal opinions on the matter, but the fact of the matter is when it comes to throttling it's not the same. It's not. It's similar for when it happens, sure, but it's not the same. The throttle is a STRAIGHT up block of speeds until the next billing cycle happens. Deprioritization is only when you're connected to that ONE SPECIFIC congested tower. You won't see a constant speed, per say, but your ping will probably increase significantly. Verizon (and users on Reddit last time I checked) have confirmed that even if you do get "deprioritized" that it's still semi-usable speeds. I believe it was something like 3g speeds. Which I don't know about you, I would still be happy to have 3g Verizon speeds and use as much as I want. Sorry for the rant. But this argument that it's a straight up throttle on Verizon realllllllllly annoys me. Don't get me wrong, I hate Verizon just as much as the next guy. But you can not lie that this plan is actually good compared to what else is offered out there. However, I do agree that Verizon's plan is a lot better than this measly attempt at a counter plan. USCC's offer is a joke. I also 1000000% agree that any military discount should be applied along with an employer discount. We, as a country, treat our veterans as a joke. They placed their lives on the line, and we treat them like dirt as a majority. Both discounts should be applied on the bill as a total. Like 100% of bill - veterans discount (to get the largest discount possible) but also have the employer discount come off that total before the veterans discount is applied.
  12. For Verizon's unlimited plan the military discount is the only one that's eligible. Employer discounts aren't as far as I know.
  13. Because of SafteyNet (Google's "Verification" check) checks for root and also an unlocked bootloader. There are ways to get around it, but of course, that would derail this thread of the original purpose.
  14. Depending on the security patch, you can unlock the Verizon model. Of course the patch needs to be REALLY old, but it is possible.
  15. If USCC offered unlimited sooner I might have considered staying with them with my family, but now it's too late. However, I hope they offer it competitively vs Verizon's plan. Verizon's plan is actually really well prices for multiple devices. $100(with $10 discount a month) and +20 a line. so for 6, it is $220 if there are no DPP and what not. I hope they can offer the discount from employers too. Verizon's discount doesn't apply unless it's military.
