data roaming deal

Recommended Posts

My wife updated the PRL on her S3 before travelling to Orlando this week. Says she's seeing 4G roaming at the airport and resort there.

 

My Moto X PE hasn't made a trip outside USCC territory yet to see what it will do.

As a follow-up on this thread: just took a trip to lower Michigan last month, and there was no LTE service found on my Moto X Pure Edition. :( Worked fine my wife's S7 she uses now.

 

Calling USCC tech support, I was pushed to level 2 support. The guy I got was trying to tell me since I didn't buy the phone from them they couldn't do anything about it because they don't have all the necessary support files to program the Moto X PE for LTE roaming.

 

Then I asked for a supervisor and was put on hold for several minutes. Same tech came back on, but his supervisor was going to try to add something to the system to force LTE roaming services on my phone and to try rebooting in 20 minutes.

 

Turned out the tweak worked, although it took longer than 20 minutes for whatever changes to propagate. The network name now shows "Extended" when receiving a roaming LTE signal rather than showing "US Cellular", which is fine with me.

 

If you have problems receiving an LTE roaming signal with the Moto X PE (and maybe Z2 and X4?), it may be necessary to be persistent about getting whatever tweak applied to your account to get LTE roaming working properly...

If I hadn't gotten 2 free s8's and a free iPhone 8, I would have jumped ship this time around with the limited roaming data. 400mb these days is gone in a day when traveling anywhere.

Last I was at the company store, they said the cap was up to 600MB, and that the company was experimenting with lifting the cap entirely on select accounts to see just how much additional usage it would incur.

 

Maybe the cap will go away one of these days. No indication WHEN that might happen.

 Interesting... the website still says 400MB.  However, I was in Arizona last month and also in Northern Wisconsin, and ended up using about 450MB roaming data according to my data tracker app...  I never noticed a change in my data speeds.  Of course, that's not really saying much because I can sit in the same spot up north and one minute have full speed 3G and the next I have less than 1x speeds...
