According to everyone else this phone was gold.
So you've pretty much solved the problem. Your wifi hotspot seems to be the common denominator. As I said earlier, the IP address on my mobile phone shows up as a different state.

Please no DONs. I think they probably already know this, but there just won't be the traffic to support a ton of different SNG formats and if something has to go its definitely DONs.

The burner phone in the FAQ is not a cure all. I just bought the exact phone at Target and have the exact same problem. Receive text. Respond to text. Location verified. Log in. Nevada Location not verified....

I started to get a different carriers phone but I decided to try this first...

Time to go get another burner phone. Maybe I'll see if they have any pressure cookers and how much Sudafed they will let me buy. Might as well go for the watch list trifecta....

Could be as I'm from Florida and so is my Iphone. But Dax said you should be able to use hotspots, so maybe not. So I don't need this crap phone, hope I can return it all and plan.

So I will never be able to play in hotel room without paying $15/night.

FK that just go to starbucks or something.. Can't believe they won't hook you up with free wifi.

Does the LTE disabling thing ever work for Verizon or is Verizon never good? I'm using a wifi connection on a home network, does this affect anything?

For the time being I used a friends cell to register and It's been letting me play. Can I get banned for this? I am legitimately in Nevada.
05-01-2013 , 07:13 PM
No Verizon seems pretty bad, hopefully that's fixed soon.

More states, please!

Anyone propose an itinerary for the people in CA planning to go to Nevada over the memorial day long weekend? Where would be the best place (for the best and most secure internet connection while not being too expensive ) to play UP? Internet from hotels doesn't seem to be a good option to me.

Hey Chainsaw. I answered it in this thread (several times, I think).

You won't get penalized for signing up now. If we roll out a VIP program or bonus program, we'll make it fair to the players who are already signed up. At a minimum, if we did anything like an initial deposit bonus, we'd offer it to everyone who was already a customer when we rolled it out.

Yeah, but I can't talk about that. I'll put it this way though - we're thrilled with the response so far. That much should be clear.
05-01-2013 , 07:22 PM
Dax can you please verify if using out of state phone as hotspot is possibly my new issue since buying the phone you said and it still not working.
05-01-2013 , 07:28 PM
Still waiting on Verizon. Damn you Verizon.

Hey man - I've seen your posts this thread, but I'm not sure what the issue is. You said you got it working somewhere, so it doesn't seem to be the location verification. Are you even able to connect to our game servers? I mean, maybe the hotel is blocking your traffic or something..? I don't know what port our game uses, but I can try to find out.

PM me your email address and I'll have a peek at it. I couldn't see if you PM'd me already or if you posted it in the thread somewhere.

And sorry man, you're really trying! I wish there were some sort of award I could give out for "best customer effort".

It isnt an issue...

The hotspot looks like any wifi connection to your computer. Your phone/hotspot is connected to a local tower. It should get an ip address that shows up as a Nevada based IP address. If for some reason your IP appears from out of state, or the cell tower triangulation check is failing then you obviously wont get on.

But UP has no visibility into where your phone is from, and they dont really give a crap where your phone is from. They only care about where you are now.

Minimal slot/vp/table play can get your WiFi charges reversed on checkout.
