How to contact someone at Sprint

Recommended Posts

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?

    • 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
