Sprint network down in FW?


Recommended Posts

Well apparently my mother who works at GM hasn't been able to text or use the phone period since 11:15PM. It shows bars but no service. I lost the ability to call text and use data 40 minutes ago and still nothing. She said she was just able to use her phone again. I've reset my phone ect ect and still nothing. Go outside and walk around and still can't.. weird

For the last two or so weeks up here I've been randomly losing service for a few minutes it typically comes back fairly quickly. I'm not sure if it has anything to do with NV upgrades or a general network issue. I'm of course hoping it's NV related.

Probably related to network vision.

 

A few months ago, I tried calling 911 because of a fire alarm - tried calling multiple times with Sprint phone and 911 call would not go through.

 

Thankfully, my T-Mobile phone worked fine - and thankfully, there is a fire alarm pull outside on the sidewalk.

Just got through dealing with the same thing in my area. It lasted about a month or so and was EXTREMELY frustrating to the point where I almost went to get a vzw prepaid just to make and take phone calls. Hard to win people over to Sprint when I'm yelling at my phone as if the phone and Sprint could hear me.

 

Then the 3G upgrades in our little cluster came online and it was like night and day. Data was wonky for about week afterward but wow is the signal awesome and solid. There is a site in this cluster that all service has been off and on though.

I know. It showed bars and 4G/3G. There was just nothing there. Texts failed, no pages loaded ect. The bars stayed grey and didn't light up. But text MMS's have failed alot in the past 3 weeks. I've had to separate the mms texts.

I never noticed this when they were upgrading my towers, I only experienced a lower signal to the point that I had to get an airave at home. I don't even know if I need it anymore haven't turned it off since I got it.

I have the airave.. lol But it's a POS I'm trying to get it replaced with one of the new hotspots. 800 is the only usable signal i get and i have to do PRL updates. But then i switch to 1900 and I can't make a call without it dropping.

    • Luckily, that hasn't arisen in my area where I am, aside from having B14 (well, ALL of AT&T signal) not work at all in Coosa county, Alabama. I wish there was a service for first responders that would go to ANY available carrier, provider, etc..and in the absolute worst case scenario, would give us service. I've been on an ambulance, trying to find an address, and my driver actually had to pull over and we pulled out a map book and tried to find the road using the "old fashioned way".. and that takes valuable time away that sometimes may be vital to someone surviving. BUT, I will say that I've only seen that in Coosa county... both my Tmo and AT&T phones had zero service and I couldn't get GPS, and neither could my driver (VZW service). Maybe satellite will help with that in those times where that occurs.. but that's an extreme example.     Edit to add: Let me add some context to this.. Coosa county isn't regular coverage area for my job.. so it's not a regular thing that we are dispatched to Coosa county.. and actually, there's been a change and that county now has it's own ambulance service that operates.. so the only time we might receive a request is if it's a multiple casualty scenario, or it's a transfer going home from our contracted hospital.  The way that reads above, it may seem like we are just out without some sort of GPS gadget to direct us on where to go, but for the most part, we know our coverage area pretty well. Dispatch can also give us cross streets for reference inside our coverage area (and our home county). Coosa just isn't a regular area for my job to run in. 
    • "Priority" doesn't mean "exclusivity."  When emergency services don't need B14, AT&T can use it for everyone else.  The trade-off is that when it is needed for emergency services, they not only get all of B14, but they have also arranged for priority on the rest of the AT&T network as well.  Beats having spectrum sitting unused most of the time and then not having enough when disaster strikes, as it could be without a partnership with a wireless company like AT&T. - Trip
    • I've wondered if being on the first responder plan has the priority over other 'regular' lines in the same way firstnet does (or, supposed to do with B14...I've seen normal customers on AT&T hit B14 so it's not {specifically} for Firstnet only)...  
    • T-Mobile prices people pay are all over the map. The free lines are key, so take them if ever offered again.  Your priority level would be a key factor for your price.  Only T-Mobile would know the average prices people pay.  Samsung has been offering very good deals at time of new model introductions so I have gone that route for factory unlocked, which allows me to also have a Verizon priority MVNO for when T-Mobile signal fails or I manually override.
    • I also wanted to post a speed test result.. I only do these once in a while from my home area because we are gonna be the last to see changes, like load balancing.  Right now they are digging all over the place for fiber installs, so I'm not sure what the hold-up is on making the upload speed a little more in-line with download speeds, but here is the most recent from my area:   https://www.speedtest.net/my-result/a/10133670525
