Crossed Lines

This problem has been plaguing my area for the least 2 weeks or so. Here is pretty much how it happens.

 

When ever I call someone, with Sprint. From either my Sprint phone or from a landline. The lines get crossed. For instance, today i called my boss who has sprint and It rang on my end and his end. When he picked up he was talking to someone named Dana and on my end i got someone named Dale's voicemail. 

 

Anyone know what would cause this or seen this happen? Our area is in progress with NV.

When I first got Sprint, about five years ago, I had this issue in one section of the city where my signal would be basically vapor and whenever I was on the phone I'd get pieces of other conversations fading in and out while I was on the line. I haven't noticed that in a few years, though.

Hi everyone - so here's something I never thought I'd be saying in 2013: recently I've been experiencing crossed telephone lines.

 

Specifically, when I get a call from Person A (at this time I can't tell if it's just that one person who happens to be a VZ subscriber or anybody who calls me), I answer the phone only to find someone else is on the line. This has happened randomly roughly 4 or 5 times over the last month. I use Google Voice integration with Sprint and right now I'm thinking that's the problem, but I haven't tried turning it off or anything like that yet.

 

Has anyone else experienced this? Thoughts?

 

Thanks

After reading your post, a few months ago I was getting text conversations by Person A and B on my phone. People I didn't know. I called Sprint about this, and they had no clue to what was happening, and told me to go into my Sprint acct and block those numbers preventing getting texts from unknowns. I don't use Google Voice, but did a lot of searching, and found something saying if someone calls/text someone that uses Google Voice, this type of thing happens. Is this true?

Having a similar issue as well. Curiously, I'm also in MO (CWE in STL specifically). Don't think NV is happening on my tower yet.

 

When I get a call from a person I know, someone random is on the line when I answer. The person who was actually calling me either gets silence or a random person on their end.

 

Called Sprint tech support and they filed a CTMS ticket. Hoping they figure out what's going on. Did this get resolved for you?

    • 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.
