Can the Moto G5 Plus be activated with U.S. Cellular?

2017-06-10, 20:58 PM

It's supposed to be compatible with U.S. Cellular, but in talking to my local U.S. Cellular store, the guy siad he had activated 5 of them, and you'll get voice and texting, but no data....something like that.

I found this

https://apn.gishan.net/settings/1751_29_us_cellular_apn_settings_for_motorola_moto_g5_plus.php

but have no idea if that will make it work.

 

My wife and I are partial to Motorola phones, and both had the original Moto X. My wife still has it, but the battery is almost toast. I have had the Moto X Pure for a while now, and I like it. I got one for her, but it had some issues, so sent it back for a refund. She didn't like the size of it. Can't find a new first gen Moto X, or I'd get her another one. The G5 Plus is in between the Moto X and the Moto X Pure, so wanted to go for that, as kit would be the happy medium. It's unlocked, just like my Pure was, but it's not looking good.

 

Figured kit couldn't hurt to ask here. :)

 

Thanks!

The pages you mention are correct. The g5 is not compatible. I am not sure why, but both say it won't work.
