not really android specific, but apple accessories are a world of their own. for all the phones with crazy rounded wrap around screens, it's been impossible to get a proper tempered glass protector. I found this brand called alinsea that gives you glue and a uv light to cure it yourself. it has to be the best fitting and best coverage I've ever seen with this type of screen and for less than $15

So NRR, how is visible? Still great? My experience with an MVNO of verizon left a sour taste in mouth. Just got an email from reddit with some person asking about speeds flatlining sometimes. Stuff like that made me not want to change, but they are probably outliers. Either way I figured tethering plus unlimited everything no caps on download for 32.50/month was too good to try something and deal with problems. Reupped for another 6 months at $195

It's great for me. I just spent 6 days backpacking in some remote areas in the mountains and I had coverage like I'd expect with regular Verizon. Got it down to $25/mo with party pay and I received my $100 virtual prepaid gift card, which I setup as payment method for my Visible bill for the next 4 months. Remember, this isn't an MVNO, Visible is one arm of Verizon.

Any simple way to cast my GP3 to my firestick? Namely right now, zoom and teams...

would be far easier to side load the apps to the device and probably a better experience. 90% fire tv has miracast built in and so does your phone though

don't know. Amazon and Google don't like each other? Phone never finds the firestick when I go to Cast (and yes, it's on the same WIFI network and yes, I have the firestick in display mirroring mode).

miracast and chromecast are not the same.. you have to choose "screen mirroring" in android

I switched to visible about a month ago and let me tell you, this was not my experience. I went to wilkesboro yesterday and had NO service. At all. This was never a problem with Verizon. So when i got home i looked at the coverage map for visible and sure enough pretty much the entirety of wilkes and ashe counties have no service with visible despite having full service with Verizon. Kinda shitty and kinda fucked my day up. Otherwise it's been fine speedwise and whatnot.

Looks like half the state of kentucky is also lacking in visible service despite having full verizon coverage.

Verizon covers those areas with domestic roaming on small local/regional providers' networks. Visible doesn't get service on those networks or any 3G coverage.

Here's my latest complaint about visible: apparently i can't receive mms messages for some reason. I just get an error notification that says "message expired or not available"in the google messages app. I have played around with all the in-app settings like turning off automatic downloading of mms as well as clearing cache and data.

This was a new phone i bought from visible so it shouldn't be an issue with settings from a previous carrier.

I have an ancient moto g4 that is prob on its last legs and is still sprint so had to be t mobilized by end of December. I usually don't buy new phones, but might consider during black Friday sales. What's the best value new (or 1-3 yr old) android phone? Don't care that much about camera and don't want something huge, not too picky otherwise.

Flagship Android phone literally only use for GPS/ Google maps. Guess what phone needs rebooted periodically for no reason.

Could be because it remains in a pickup truck 24-7-365 hooked to a charger regardless of weather the temp is below freezing or close to 100. The battery is about to explode too.

Just picked up a Galaxy S22 this week. Tmobile gave me $400 trade-in on the S7 sitting in a drawer. So far it is great! The camera is a decent upgrade from my S9+. Wanted a smaller form factor, so no S22+

I've had a 7 for almost a year now and really like it. Seems like a pretty good deal, but when the 8 drops in October there will be some even bigger discounts on the 7 at that time would be my guess.

Anyway for an app to make it more apple like? Don’t care about blue text colors. More concerned about swiping up for flashlight and other things

not sure which phone you have, but you can pretty much customize it as much as you want. I'm sure that seems like a foreign concept to you.
