    Pixel 2 by HTC User Thread

    I just read that it doesn't actually use Quick charge, it's something called Power Delivery and it needs to be a USB-C to USB-C cable. I ordered a brick and a longer cord on Amazon so I'll see how that works. Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk

    Family Share plan price changes?

    I have the 6 GB Family Share plan (or whatever its official name is). Today's bill came and suddenly the add-on lines are $25 a month instead of $20. Has anyone else noticed this?

    Pixel 2 by HTC User Thread

    Phone came today. The chat agent I chatted with on Sunday night sent the wrong SIM card - I even asked 3 times because I knew it was wrong, but they insisted it would work. It did not. Called in and the tech support called the local Sprint store to check if they had the correct one - they had ONE in stock. So I ran over there ASAP and got it up and running. Was pretty simple after that. Drove home to find my phone line leading to my neighborhood was totally destroyed somehow -- copper line cut in half and pairs oozing out all over the place -- so no DSL and Wifi. So it's pretty annoying to set up a new phone with no Wifi. I'm currently using it as a Hotspot and it's working great, even with a low signal in the basement. First thing I've noticed: it doesn't charge rapidly with any of my current QuickCharge 3.0 cubes or cords. That's kind of annoying, but certainly not a deal breaker. It does work with the included cord. Just annoying because I have quite a slew of QC 3.0 / USB-C cords in varying lengths. It didn't even like the HTC branded ones from the 10. I'll figure out the Google Voice visual voicemail thing tomorrow and/or whenever my DSL line gets fixed.

    Well, they sent me the wrong SIM card, so I had to go to the Sprint store to get a new one and activate it. And, on the way home, I saw that there was some kind of accident which totally took out my phone line, so I have no DSL. So it's been a bit annoying to set up! I'll know more when I get DSL back up and running :-)

    Yeah, hoping I won't miss that. This is the 128 GB model so I should have more than enough space. Sent from my 2PS64 using Tapatalk

    Well I found a good deal on a Pixel 2 on eBay last night, so we'll see how that works out! Sent from my 2PS64 using Tapatalk

    So you activate Google Voice and then you can use the built in VV app? Never got WiFi calling on the 10 so I won't miss that anyway! Sent from my 2PS64 using Tapatalk

    I was thinking about either the U11 (I know, "old") or honestly the Pixel 2. Getting tired of waiting for all the OEMs to get Android updates.

    I still love this phone but the battery just doesn't last anymore 😐

    Pixel 2 by HTC User Thread

    Thinking about getting a Pixel 2 to replace my HTC 10. Still love the 10, best phone I ever had, and it's still just as snappy as ever, but the battery doesn't last anymore. Now that I'm on summer break (teacher here!) I have to put it on the charger at least 2 times a day. This morning, unplugged around 11AM and by 12:30 it was already at 77% and all I did was some texting. I've read that you can't use Visual Voicemail with the Pixel 2, is that true?
  12. I forgot to report that it just randomly corrected itself 🤷🏻‍♂️ Sent from my 2PS64 using Tapatalk
  13. Randomly yesterday, I get error messages when trying to send an SMS to a certain contact. They have an iPhone, I have an HTC 10. It was working fine, in the middle of a conversation, and suddenly I now get "Can't send message with Sprint, error 3" every time. However, I am able to send MMS messages, either pictures or in part of a group text. Tech support has a ticket going but does anyone have any ideas? I've done so many profile and PRL updates already as per their troubleshooting suggestions. Sent from my 2PS64 using Tapatalk

    So I've gotten used to the icons now. And I finally figured out how the notifications categories work and now know how to customize them...that's pretty neat. Not sure about battery life since I've been playing around and also power has been out at my house due to the winter storm since Friday afternoon. So I've been using the phone a lot.
