US Cellular- beware
After that Galaxy S3, I told myself I would never own a Samsung phone again but this S4 has changed my mind!
US Cell has only given me one problem since I've been a customer. I've been a customer since US Cell was called Cellular One. Last year they double charged me one time while they were doing their system upgrade. Otherwise I've been pretty pleased with them!
That alone should frighten people more than anything I said.
So they told you to dump what is basically the most popular phone in the country to try an off brand, and the off brand works better?
Samsung- selling 1 out of 4 cell phones on the planet
Moto- less than 5%, lumped in with "Others"
I buy your story though. My buddy has an ancient Galaxy S3 and gets lightning fast 4G service in his house- over twice as fast as I've ever gotten with my leading edge LG G3.
I wonder if they have slow rollout of good software for newer phones, or if newer phones have a different type of radio that doesn't work as well on their network?
Depending on your negotiating skills you may not have to pay for the device at all. I think your standing to negotiate might be a bit better if other carriers work where Verizon does not.. I know someone that got it for free in the end and had NO service at their house..
Femtocell is the actual name of the devices. I think the non-carrier affiliated Femtocells can be found cheaper. We needed one in Fall River and it worked great. We went with the Verizon offered device. Sucks to have to pay to make some one else's product work, but no cell carrier worked in our house. Sold it to our neighbors when we moved to it proved to be a good investment.
As an only option it works fantastic.. also solves the problem. If one refuses to use something that works, they probably won't have any or many options, but that is their choice.
My Moto X gets service just about anywhere in the state.
I had the S4 or 5 whatever it was and I could not get service in my house. Was starting to get a little po'd as a lot of contractors have to reach me after hours for bidding. Talked to US Cell and they said to switch the phone as the S series was having those issues. Have not looked back.
It was both.
Verizon's network worked great everywhere for me- but my house.
I have Charter phone/cable modem/tv, but the only people who call us on the landline are charities, surveys, and politicians.
Was thinking about scrapping the landline as I'm tired of the panhandlers. I thought if US Cell had good home coverage and good 3G data when up North or fishing, I could go all cell.
Sounds like Verizon and the mini tower might be my only option.
To be fair, had 4G on Mason Lake by Briggsville today, so that's 1 of 3 area lakes I've fished lately that worked.
It has a 110v adapter (110VAC to 12VDC) so the input voltage is 12VDC and I assume milliamps..
