Quote from: TomM on March 06, 2013, 06:30:35 PMLong time US Cellular user. Tried ATT for a while and just not cutting it where I happen along.All my prior US Cellular phones (Erickson, LG, Motorola) rec'd a good signal and almost no dropped calls over a 16 year span.THEN, at the end of July 2012, I purchased the "Samsung Galaxy S3". Ordered the first one on the phone... it arrived in a day or so. Had it activated and it would not hold a call. Drop after drop after drop. US Cellular sent me another one three weeks later. I had to pay almost $40.00 for the next one, evidently because the $300.00 I had already paid was not enough for a phone that works. After amost 50 dropped calls later within three weeks, and with the assistance of a tech at a corporate store I was sent my third Galaxy S3 (advertised as the greatest phone ever)... after a few more months I just could not take it anymore and on the day it dropped six calls in three hours I finally had to give up. So... $315.00 MORE DOLLARS later, I now have a used Motorola Electrify M that actually works as a phone. I now have a $600.00 paperweight called the Samsung Galaxy GS3. It works great surfing the internet, but I needed a phone with an antenna. The Electrify is a bit smaller and the apps work a little different, but hey... I need a phone that actually works as a phone first... Nothing like 'I can't get no ... satisfaction'... US Cellular and Samsung obviously feel I was a fool to buy that phone and deserve to pay over $300.00 for one that works.Gotta love big corporations that could give a rip about whether their product works or not.I know this phone works for some people (probably a lot of people), but all my other phones worked fine no matter where I went and this model is just ... well... what can I say?I might add that is is really frustrating to purchase screen guards for each phone, only to have to replace them with each different phone and to have to replace all your apps and options each time you replace one, figuring "this one will work".I've even had a US Cellular rep refuse to take my calls or return my voicemails and texts and emails. So I am glad I can get calls now, if I could get service reliably with ATT or Verizon or whatever, I would switch... Thing is, to find that out, I would have to pay big bucks to subscribe to some other service and then they only give you 15 days now to figure out if their system works for you. What a raquet!
