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.

    • While I've been loath to update my Samsung devices past the May 2022 update to keep the Band Selection tool, I note that it looks like Android 14 is going to add Timing Advance for NR to the API.  (Was looking today as I have another Verizon A42 5G now that I'm going to unlock for T-Mobile, and wanted to figure out if I should let it update or not.)  Since I can technically make band changes from *#73#, on the A42 5Gs, I can probably live without the Band Selection tool if a later Android version adds something useful like TA values. I assume SCP will be updated to support that once it becomes publicly available.  The real question is whether or not the phones will support it.  My S21FE and A42 5G devices do on LTE, but I know the S22 and the A32 5G do not support it even on LTE, providing just zero in that field. - Trip
    • The A23 5G appears to support all of the Dish NR bands except n26 which they don't even own yet, and n29 which as SDL can't be logged as far as I can tell.  https://www.phonescoop.com/phones/phone.php?p=6760  I mean, n71, n66, and n70 are there, and those are the ones I'm most concerned about. I know that's not trade press, but I've found Phone Scoop to tend to be missing bands rather than including bands that should be there. I don't really care if it's carrier locked; if I'm buying a device specifically for Dish, then I'm probably not switching it out in the immediate future. - Trip
    • I mapped out the various phone choices to Dish's NR bands.  Used trade press for many of the phones, which can be unreliable.  Just starting with N71, you are down to three phones: Moto G Stylus 5G 2022, Moto Edge+ (2022), Celero 5G+.  Add in the less frequent n66 and you are down to: Moto G Stylus 5G 2022, Moto Edge+ (2022).  The Moto G Stylus 5G 2022 then walks away with the rest of the bands.   A negative is even if you pay cash, the phone is carrier locked for a year.

    • After nearly a month T-Mobile seems to be finally expanding n25 beyond the initial 5 sites they were using. However, it seems to be quite the mess. The three sites near me are all using different size channels. I'm getting a 5Mhz channel that's only using the G Block, a 15Mhz channel that's using the C Block, and a 20Mhz channel that's using C+G, each from a different site all next to each other. Very confusing.
