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.

I've never ever lost service because of network vision and we're 9 months in.I didn't have service for over an hour lol.it was weird

that makes no sense. you say never lost service, yet you say you didnt have service for over an hour..  :lol:

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.

    • Did my drive from PHX to SEA & got to experience the terribleness that is the totem lake area. Impressive, speed test didn't complete either time.
    • Weird that they'd go back to the Edge+. Would think they'd let folks use the S22 just like with Genesis. In other news, St. Louis has 10x10 n71 + n66 SDL live. A bit more info here:  
    • Wonder what other spectrum the auto industry can use, how much of the 5.9GHz was being used, and if 30MHz will be enough 20 or 30 years from now. The auto industry has had it for 20 years sure, but technology can move really slow.  It isn't good.  It isn't ready for real world applications. The hardware is too slow to be able to process enough reliable data. It is too expensive.  Etc. I would argue that we are just getting to the point where features that I would assume could use 5.9GHz are just now hitting mass market as the code is better, hardware is not only significantly faster but also cheaper. The baseline trim models still lack a lot of safety features but the next trim up usually comes with a bunch of goodies I'd assume could make use of 5.9GHz. Just imagine where we were in 2005, 2010, 2015.  Mostly just assumptions without enough knowledge of the spectrum use, so a hint of skepticism. With the what, 1.2GHz that opened up in the 6GHz range, getting 45MHz out of 5.9GHz is very meh.
    • Cool find! Been there since 2018 according to Cellmapper. The only other time I've seen them leave up a temp site like this for a long period of time was when a nearby site is temporarily inoperable like the one in Red Hook Houses. That doesn't seem to be the case here and it's pretty much a GMO site at this point. My best guess is that T-Mobile wanted to put a site there to fill in coverage but because it's on LGA's grounds getting the actual permission to do so is extremely complex so they worked out a deal with the Port Authority to put up a COW in the meantime.  
    • Would this be a T-Mobile COW outside LGA Terminal A? eNB 49106 seems to line up to its position, plus the arm for the trailer to hook onto a truck says T-Mobile. Here is the NYC streetcar view the image was pulled from.     For all the years I have been monitoring the DAS, I have never gotten -55 or better, even after passing by every antenna in a station that is deep enough to have 0 outside macros reaching in. The SNR is still 20+, so its probably designed that way on purpose.
