  1. i havent been in a position to roam on USCC at this point since TMobile is so good around here now. I just used samsung band selector on my S20+ and chose band 12 and it picked up and connected to USCC without issues. everything works so maybe in areas that really need it, they left it alone. if you go much north beyond southern maine, if they did not have USCC roaming, no tmobile customer would have service so its kind of a big deal.
  2. i live in southern maine but i only have ROAMAHOME on my acocunt but i am on tmobile all the time. coverage is amazing. maines a big state though so if you plan on going up north, you will probably have a bad time but as long as they still give US Cellular roaming you should be fine.
  3. not sure when it started but i noticed this morning by S20+ is getting a TMo IP address (regular phone not tethering) now instead of Sprint and I also can not run trace routes anymore (used to work sprint), presumably because I am now under tmobiles network policies.
  4. I have this same exact problem, but it only happens when i am connected to 5G and afaik, a specific tower in my town. I notice it mostly when i am out for my walk at night. I round the street corner and data is dead (shows 5G, phone calls still work). I get to pretty much the same spot further down the road and data starts working again. I have started very large downloads to max the connection out just to "catch" it dropping out and i can watch the speeds decrease to 0 as i round the corner. I have found data will come back online though. So either its dropping out for X number
  5. does att count the firstnet emergency network connections in this as well?
  6. you can use it on sprint, you just need to use the call screener app (from what i understood). i was paying $2.99 for the premium caller id which i have canceled so i am interested in seeing if this will now become free.
  7. HD calling is annoying for me. i do not get HD calling if someone calls me. if i call them, even calling them right back, HD calling will happen. this happening mostly when the other user is verizon.
  8. Wait, chicken and the egg here but maybe GCI was the first to offer 5G nationwide?
  9. what sort of speeds (actual numbers) are we talking here?
  10. i was on that as well until i tried to update yesterday and it got replaced with the one being talked about now.
  11. I had to disable the 1x icon completely because it wouldnt stop alerting. that worked for about a week or so and then the other day when i got up signal check was constantly notifying me of something, i just dont know what. i was just connected to band 71. i dont really know what else i can disable because at that point i lose the icons atthe top left of the screen. will send you a report now since it happens any time i launch signal check and stops once i exit it.
  12. anyone have issues with signal check constantly giving an audible notification? Started out of the blue this morning and the only way to stop it is exit out of SC for good.
  13. I cant figure out what is going on with SC and the S20. Back when i first got the device, i had to disable 1x connection from showing completely because SC would just keep giving an alert over and over every time it connected to 1x. I could not find any alert setting that handled this. Okay no big deal just leave it disabled i guess. I get up this morning and un-silence the phone and it just keeps beeping and beeping and come to find out its signal check, all out of the blue. I dont know what it is notifying me about because 1x is disabled from showing. To stop it i had to exit ou
  14. One thing i just noticed today on my S20. It shows the 5G icon but if data is otherwise unused / idle...NR is missing from the service menu screens. Once I start passing traffic it will populate. maybe that is the issue for you?
  15. yes from sprint. i had no native Sprint 5G around me prior to this so once they sent out the update last week it was like a switch was flipped. im sure there was plenty of others around the country who had the same experience.
