Crossed Lines

Recommended Posts

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?

    • 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
