How to contact someone at Sprint

Does anyone know how to contact (email, Facebook, etc) someone at Sprint to tell them about issues I'm having (the call quality in my area is not good)?  I have put many complaints in the My Sprint app (for over a year, 2 different phones), but the call quality still is not great.  For most calls, it keeps breaking up.

 

In certain area, the call quality is great.  It's just here at home and sometimes where I work.

Do you have a strong signal while it's happening? If so, then it's due to 1x being overloaded. I've had the same issue in SF for probably the past 5 years, and Pittsburgh for the last several (it's usually OK outside the city). It got worse when they thinned CDMA to expand B25.

The only solution honestly is VoLTE. They won't deploy more CDMA macros at this point, so that's the only way to alleviate voice congestion.

Yes, I can have a great signal and this still happens.

Well thx for responding.  At least I know, but I hope they can then get VoLTE out sooner rather than later.

Yup, it's incredibly frustrating. Especially since my Pixel doesn't have wifi calling on Sprint. I have a great CDMA signal at home (-60 rssi), but I got an Airave just for voice because of this issue. The Airave has a dedicated 1x carrier that doesn't overlap with the macro (it actually overlaps slightly with B25...), and calls are crystal clear while I'm on it. If I get handed off to the macro though, the quality is unusable.

So requesting an Airave may be a solution for you.

If you've got a rooted phone, you might try toggling the CDMA bands (class 1 is 1900 and class 10 is 1x800) in a app like network signal guru to see if one or the other is better for you.  Some phones also have this ability through the data menu, but my experience with that method was nearly disastrous.  The phone I tried toggling BC 10 on got stuck in a boot loop.  The only way I could stop it was airplane mode as soon as it booted into android (before the radio became active) and reenabling  BC 10.

That's really interesting. I think I understand why though.

Why the phone boot looped,  trying band toggling or something else?

    • Author kinda doesn't know what they're talking about, as they assumed their speeds were n71-only (it's like they half-read the PCMag article they cite). The speeds they're mentioning are 100% from n71 + n66 SDL, which also explains speeds dropping off a cliff when they walk indoors. In fact, Dish has some paired AWS-3 in Spokane, albeit just 5x5, so I wouldn't be surprised if they haven't bothered deploying that and are just doing 71 + n66 SDL (the former at 5x5). May head down to San Marcos and New Braunfels tonight to do some testing. I expect either n71-only or n71 + SDL, not sure which. n71 is 5x5 here as Dish has leased half of their 10x10 to T-Mobile. When that lease expires they'll be at 10x10, and they could get another 10 MHz FD (albeit not contiguous) from speculators if T-Mobile didn't outbid them. Will be interesting to see who buys what when.
    • The Verge wrote an article on Dish’s network.    https://www.theverge.com/2022/7/1/23188077/dish-wireless-project-genesis-first-week-testing-speeds-coverage
    • I guess that makes sense. I know that ZiplyFiber (my ISP) has had issues with sourcing fiber as well.  Also, that recently upgraded site is interesting. NOt only does it have a strange eNB value, 236960, which  is different from the ones usually around here but also, all of the LTE bands (including B41) are on the same eNB. This is the first time I have seen  T-Mobile do that in this area.  Also found another upgraded site, eNB 84770, by FireStation 26 has been upgraded with B71/n71 (no n41). 
    • Almost the exact same thing happened on my Verizon Galaxy Flip a couple days ago.
