    Pixel 2 by HTC User Thread

    I hate the way the volume slider works now. Having it always default to media volume is stupid. It was much better before when it defaulted to ringer and then changed to media if you had sound playing. I also dislike how Bluetooth has changed. When the phone rings, the ring plays through Bluetooth and on the phone. However, notification sounds only play through Bluetooth. With a third party Bluetooth add-on in my 2008 Subaru Legacy, I only hear calls now unless I turn off Bluetooth. Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk

    Anyone download Pie? I love the way it looks but hate how difficult they made a lot of settings changes now. Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk

    Android Pie

    Agree! Love the way it looks but really hate how it works! They seem to have changed Bluetooth so that it can't ring on the phone and Bluetooth at the same time. I have an add on Bluetooth in my car and now I don't hear any rings or texts unless I switch to that input. Stupid. Unless there's a setting I'm missing. Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk

    Android Pie

    I HATE the new volume slider. Why the hell would they default it to control media volume? It is way too difficult now to control ringer volume. Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk

  6. I was out today near Kutztown, PA, and this particular area is a Sprint dead zone (was on a back road). I noticed I had the R icon, and the signal meter had an H next to it instead of 3G or LTE. Signal Check said I was on GSM. The about phone menu said HSPA+ roaming. I couldn't make a phone call and I don't think data was working either. I have a Pixel 2. It eventually went to 3G and then Sprint LTE. Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk

    Google Voice voicemail question

    Sweet! Found it and now it works like I wanted. After Sprint finishes ringing it now goes straight to GV voicemail. No more 60+ seconds before voicemail. I feel like if I missed an important call someone would have just hung up and not left a message if they had to wait so long. Sent from my Pixel 2 using Tapatalk

    Google Voice voicemail question

    So I'm really enjoying my unlocked Pixel 2. I've activated Google Voice and conditional call forwarding and the visual voicemail app is working great. The only thing that bothers me is the length of time it takes to get to the voicemail. If I call my phone from my landline and don't answer, at the end of the Sprint ring, it goes to Google Voice and rings for another 20-30 seconds before the voicemail picks up. Is there a way to change this? I feel like if someone important was calling me and that happened, they'd just hang up after waiting for so long listening to the phone ring.

    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.

    HTC 10 User Thread

    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
