For the last three weeks I have been getting quite a few dropped calls. Sprint has only admitted to a small "outage" even though my drops have occured in multiple places. Any body else experience this?

there is a network outage reporting on your t.ower around your area. call sprint they will give you the information

Thats the one that they reported to me two weeks ago. It also does not explain the other dropped calls.

no drop calls for me, yet. there was the Friday night outage a couple of months ago and then my wife and I had a shorter 'drop-out' several weeks back, but didn't last too long. Otherwise, status qou.

I have had some dropped calls, and really bad static in my phone lately. Data speeds has been terribly bad! Some of the towers are over capacity.....They said have to put up more T1 lines to help the coverage, and data issues. Been very disappointed lately. Sprint (Ticket Services) even call me back to tell me when they estimated time would be for the little update to be complete....smh...September 1, 2012...that is way too long. LTE won't drop for Raleigh/Durham til sometime in 2013, so they need to fix these issues!

LTE wont complete in RDU until 2013. But it starts this year.

As disappointing as it may be, there are cities larger than Raleigh that will start NV/LTE much later. Raleigh has a very coveted spot in the schedule for a city its size. My market, Albuquerque, is near the end.

I just had family with Sprint phone pass through Raleigh and they didn't report any issues. They apparently got lost and were able to call for assistance and everything while downtown. Perhaps its fixed now or it is just affecting a few specific areas? They are in Charlotte now and they have no issues there either.

Yeah, Charlotte coverage is much better, than Raleigh's. Yeah, I believe it certain areas. Downtown Raleigh has really good coverage. I get almost all my bars, when at work. Data on the other hand not so good, but call quality is excellent.

Yeah, of course. Raleigh is pretty small compared to other cities. Just thought it would be complete a little more faster, since thing supposedly are going well with updates, through out the country.

We haven't had any dropped call issues in the northern part of Wake County. I know in the Oxford/Henderson area there were some problems with the data network a couple months back but I believe that's been fixed. Data speeds are terrible most of the time, but we haven't had any call quality or connection issues.

    • I don't have anything solid to offer on Cumberland, but I came down US-15 today and the water tower site in Weber City is now up and running with B2/12/4/71 (035ACCxx), I believe I saw new T-Mobile antennas on the tower at Sprouses Corner which I will try to confirm on Saturday (definitely not running if they're there), and I believe I may have connected to something that got converted in Farmville.  By process of elimination, my guess is Lancer Park, but I hope to find out tomorrow or Saturday. So upgrades are clearly coming.  You may want to see if your local government officials can tell you anything.  Probably not, but can't hurt to ask. - Trip
    • Interesting twist.  Today, I took off for southern Virginia and had my T-Mobile B71 phone (Revvlry on Android 10) and I noticed the GPS was bad as compared to my other two devices on SCP on the dash.  Couldn't get it to clear by toggling the Location Services box, so I quit and restarted SCP. When I did so, it first came up with the bad coordinates, then extremely rapidly zipped through from where it was stuck all the way up to where I was currently, like the coordinates were backlogged and then suddenly flushed out within a few short seconds.  More bizarrely, I noticed the same behavior on two other devices (Pixel 3a and Moto One 5G Ace, both on Android 11) and had to do the same thing to those.  I also dumped my trails on all three, assuming they were all bad by then.  The rest of my devices were correct. I was barreling down the highway at the time, so I couldn't investigate further.  Other than my quoted message above, I've never seen this behavior before, and now it seems to be widespread.  - Trip
    • Does anyone have any updates to the Cumberland/Mineral County area? Specifically looking to get TMHI in Ft. Ashby.
    • Actually, you are correct. It is possible Dish won't take it. Meanwhile both Dish and T-Mobile pretend they don't want it for negotiation purposes.
    • I believe one of the merger conditions was they had offer to sell it to Dish.  EDIT: Oops didn't see that this had already been answered.
