How to contact someone at Sprint

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know how to contact (email, Facebook, etc) someone at Sprint to tell them about issues I'm having (the call quality in my area is not good)?  I have put many complaints in the My Sprint app (for over a year, 2 different phones), but the call quality still is not great.  For most calls, it keeps breaking up.

 

In certain area, the call quality is great.  It's just here at home and sometimes where I work.

Do you have a strong signal while it's happening? If so, then it's due to 1x being overloaded. I've had the same issue in SF for probably the past 5 years, and Pittsburgh for the last several (it's usually OK outside the city). It got worse when they thinned CDMA to expand B25.

The only solution honestly is VoLTE. They won't deploy more CDMA macros at this point, so that's the only way to alleviate voice congestion.

Yes, I can have a great signal and this still happens.

Well thx for responding.  At least I know, but I hope they can then get VoLTE out sooner rather than later.

Yup, it's incredibly frustrating. Especially since my Pixel doesn't have wifi calling on Sprint. I have a great CDMA signal at home (-60 rssi), but I got an Airave just for voice because of this issue. The Airave has a dedicated 1x carrier that doesn't overlap with the macro (it actually overlaps slightly with B25...), and calls are crystal clear while I'm on it. If I get handed off to the macro though, the quality is unusable.

So requesting an Airave may be a solution for you.

There is also an issue when you register for calling plus then stop using it. The path the call takes through the network is causing issues.

If you've got a rooted phone, you might try toggling the CDMA bands (class 1 is 1900 and class 10 is 1x800) in a app like network signal guru to see if one or the other is better for you.  Some phones also have this ability through the data menu, but my experience with that method was nearly disastrous.  The phone I tried toggling BC 10 on got stuck in a boot loop.  The only way I could stop it was airplane mode as soon as it booted into android (before the radio became active) and reenabling  BC 10.

That's really interesting. I think I understand why though.

Why the phone boot looped,  trying band toggling or something else?

    • Those FCC docs are all in place to "sell" the idea of the merger. So you better believe they are over blowing all of Sprint's inadequacies (and T-mobile's for that matter) There's no question that they can both go at it alone (T-mobile especially) it would just not be nearly as fruitful from a business stand point. 
    • I'm still waiting for my notification, I can't wait.  I've used a bunch of 3rd party apps for this, but nothing was "silver bullet" Did you get a Messages upgrade?  Wondering if the version i have is compatible.  I'm on 3.3.044
    • It was honestly shocking to see Sprint officially put in writing what my suspicions have been in terms of their network plans and business sustainability going forward. Marcelo put a pretty face on it for a long time in terms of a “five year turnaround” plan, but it’s now clear that the marketing and messaging around that was to buy time/room to get to this point in time for a merger to happen. The stuff/figures in the redacted portions of the FCC Filing must also present a pretty bleak picture on Sprint, if the unredacted text reads as is.
    • Could be with M-MIMO equipment being tested. But most likely an event going on.  Try to get a closer shot of the rear and connectors.
    • Didn't think it was sprint. And I haven't noticed any other equipment present in the area but I'll walk around lunch time to see if there is anything else.  I'm still connected to the standard Clear B41 site. could it be possible they are replacing it and wanted to have a back up solution to pick up the weight of the tower being offline?
