any way to report signal problems to sprint on the internets?

Recommended Posts

I have googled this and searched the forums here. Since I'm posting this you can correctly assume that I didn't find an answer.


Is there a way to report signal problems to Sprint through its website? Or do I have to call in and talk to someone?


The signal strength at my office has degraded from terrible to [insert expletive here]. It has always been bad, but over the last couple of weeks it has gotten worse.


My RSSI was -109 an hour ago; -116 this morning.  Currently at -100. I don't think I've gotten better than -100 since sometime in April.

Currently there isn't an official way through the website, you can post in the Community, but that is primarily meant for customers to assist and answer each other's questions (something posted in the Community but no one seems to understand, there are only a handful of Sprint employees in there to moderate).You can call or go into a store to report an issue. The new tool (Network Pinpoint) used for it allows specific marking of locations, addresses, intersections, etc. so the more information you have about the location, the more accurate the info they can use when the Network team gets to looking at it.


I did bring this up as a suggestion a few months ago for consumer transparency and was told that systems were already being implemented to improve feedback like this. Then a few weeks ago the new Network Pinpoint tool was released to get feedback increasingly more up to date. The 12 year old system they used didn't cut it anymore obviously.

I've used their Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/sprint/app_337327162963179) and also their community page (http://community.sprint.com/baw/community/buzzaboutwireless/customer-service) with very good results. I use Christy in Care who is AMAZING and is very very well connected within the company to get just about anything done.

I like twitter because its less time on hold and so forth. You can post most of what they need rather than being on the phone for hours when your busy.

Just use the sprint online chat in the upper right corner of the website with the small thought bubble icon, or post in the community network area as a question and the socialcare will assist you.

    • Looks like T-Mobile just got an opportunity to expand n41 in Shentel-land https://www.fiercewireless.com/wireless/shentel-sell-its-25-ghz-spectrum-assets
    • Almost at 76% licenses "sold" at $160 million. Like watching paint dry.  Will check again in a few days. 
    • I guess we'll see how many takers there are for this: https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2022-08-04/dish-nears-launch-of-mobile-service-taking-on-at-t-and-verizon One early drawback to the Boost Infinite service is that, for now, subscribers will need to buy a $900 Motorola Edge+ phone to get connected to Dish’s new network. More phones that are compatible with the system are expected in the third quarter, Dish told analysts Wednesday. Registration Site: https://www.boostinfinite.com I remember when Virgin Mobile went iPhone-only: https://techcrunch.com/2017/06/21/virgin-mobile-goes-iphone-only-offers-a-year-of-service-for-1/ That didn't go so well.
    • Hey Mike    Ya I was the one that brought the issue to your attn for the color thing on my 6T like 3-4 years ago   that was fixed after like 6 months  and I never had any issues with that anymore till the 1st  Android/OxygenOS 12 update but it hasn't done that anymore (that i've seen lately)   it just doesn't give me the  signal strength much anymore  it'll show it for like 5 mins then  switch to  "--"  and stay that way  Sometimes if I close it out and reopen it  it'll come back (tho the icon is delayed showing up for like a min  or so when it used to show up instantly) but after a few mins it's back to showing "--" again and other times it'll just come back to the "--"
    • Sounds like an awesome project—keep us posted on how it’s going! Also—if you’re able to figure out logging, I can work with you to get the data uploaded to SignalCheck.
