Pre NV problems


Recommended Posts

Has anyone experienced problems with incoming calls in markets that are pre-NV? Columbus market rolled out eHRPD months ago and starting in February all phones on my account began to "ignore" incoming calls. When I spent 2 hours on the phone with support, after wiping my phone, reset, reset, reset, OMG another wipe??! the recommendation was to take my handset to a tech store to have it checked. The tech checked my phone and it was perfectly fine. The tech checked my account and discovered something called "blocks" and said they were high. He also said it's a compatibility problem with new 800 MHz hardware that is being deployed and there are tickets opened to be resolved.

 

Has anyone else had this problem in pre-NV markets? Service is horrible. I can make outgoing calls fine but it's hard to be reached if I'm not in range of an airave (I have two). I feel like a lab rat.

I havent seen specific pre nv problems but sometimes phones have issues and need an update to fix incoming calls not going through. In south bend some people have incoming call issues and i know lots including me with out going text issues during nv. It all started with 800/1900 3g roll out here but we were told to expect it.

I had a problem similar to this. After I flashed my phone to another rom. Everything was working fine but when someone tried calling me it'd go straight to voice mail. Then like 2 weeks since the problem started a chatted with sprint and told them I couldn't receive phone calls and they said it was an software issue on their side and they made me turn my phone and the guy did something and told me to turn it back and now finally working. Who knows it might just be an software issue on sprints side.

2 of my devices started experiencing this issue about 3-4 weeks ago. Sprint CS was terrible at first in trying to get the issue resolved. They blamed my device and signal strength then offered me an AirRave that I refused. Finally my issue got escalated to S.P.R.T (Service Performance Resolution Team). He attempted to troubleshoot it but was unable to resolve it so I got a credit. A few days later my phone started receiving phone calls on the initial ring instead of the 5 - 6 rings it would take to ring my actual phone. This only happened though when I was connected to tower closes to my home.

This might be similar to the issues Chicago saw during the early NV roll outs.  The Samsung NV equipment was not "compatible" with the Legacy Motorola equipment, so changes towers was impossible and calls hard dropped.  I've actually seen it in Michigan too.  It you are on the border of an upgraded tower and a legacy tower, you might be bouncing back and forth causing some problems.

I have the same issue as your phone. In the end, I got a airwave. Now, since NV completed in my area, appreantly the problem is resolved.

I'm having problems with my 3g! Every few days my 3g up arrow will stay lit like it's uploading something, While this is going on I have no data connection. The only way to fix this is toggling airplane mode on/off.

 

I have the new HTC One and thought it is a defective unit but after hearing this...NV might be the culprit! I live in the LA market where towers are being upgraded everywhere around me.

 

Btw I start receiving Lte 3 weeks ago.

Sprint's pushing out another software/modem update for the S3 phones, could be for your phone too. They told me about it a couple weeks ago while spending two weeks getting the airave working. Think about a 500 meg file on really really slow 3G connection, it will stop your data. Just jump on a wifi somewhere and it will download from there. I do hate their updates as they will kill your battery even on one bar downloading that file instead of waiting on a strong signal or being on wifi.

 

My problem has never been making calls, sending or receiving texts or using data. it has been in receiving calls where they just go to voicemail. Trying to run a construction business away from the office and being reachable has definitely left a nasty taste in the mouths of decision makers.

I can relate to this, two other family members are Realtors & both hate Sprint.

    • T-Mobile wins more 5G spectrum over AT&T's objections So now it's official?
    • Just got back from Puerto Rico. I spent a lot of time going around the San Juan metro area, predominantly in Viejo San Juan, Santurce, Isla Verde, and a short stop in University Gardens.  T-Mobile's network still performs as well today as it did when I last tested and in my opinion is the best on the island. n41 is still at 100MHz in most areas though I did record a few areas with only 80MHz. Yesterday the FCC announced that they're finally granting T-Mobile their Auction 108 winnings so we'll probably finally see that increase. They also have 15MHz of n25 and 15MHz of n25 and 15MHz n71. The fastest speed I recorded while there was 922 down and 120 up, presumably aggregating n41+n25 and potentially n71 as well but I wasn't able to confirm that. A couple of things I noticed about their network are that their is a ton of split-sector n25 deployed in San Juan, much like in the U.S. I even noticed some n41 sites that had 4 or more sectors. The weirdest being the site on top of SJU Airport where they have 6 n41 sectors each broadcasting 80MHz of n41. AT&T SIMs roam on LIberty's network but they still treat it as the home network. In my opinion they're the second best network in Puerto Rico. Liberty is still using the AT&T MCC-MNC code and is pretty much coasting on AT&T's network upgrades. They have 10MHz n5 virtually everywhere but I never saw my phone connect to any other 5G bands. Their saving grace was just how much spectrum they have to aggregate across midband and lowband. I'd see combos like 10MHz n5 + 20MHz B2 + 10MHz B66 + 10MHz Band 30 + 5MHz Band 2 and get upwards of 200Mbps. Coverage was slightly worse than T-Mobile in my experience, even indoors which is a surprise given T-Mobile usually struggles a bit indoors due to their macro density. Verizon is roaming on Claro in Puerto Rico just as they have been for years. No idea if there is 5G roaming because I was connected to LTE the entire time. Toggling 5G didn't do anything and both pings and speeds weren't great. Speeds were in the 20-40Mbps range consistently and pings over 200ms. For comparison T-Mobile's pings are in the teens and Liberty pings are in the 40's even when roaming using an AT&T SIM. Claro's network is ok in my experience with nothing really notable about it.  — — — — — Here are some pics of sites that I took:
    • WTB instructed to process all 2.5GHz licenses across the USA. They are only giving up some spectrum in certain markets of Hawaii.
    • Is this just for licenses in Hawaii?
    • Yeah, it basically directs the bureau to proceed with granting the applications in the normal course.  It's no longer being held by the AT&T objection. - Trip
