Dropped Calls Raleigh market

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.

    • Okay.  I just pulled the Location permission with the app running, and I think it may have closed and immediately reopened.  But I got a notification telling me that "Permission required" while the app itself just said "Waiting for update.." with a spinning circle.  Once I tapped on the "Permission required" notification, it popped up asking for location permission which I then granted. - Trip
    • Thanks! There have been some recent changes to Android permissions requirements that were not documented very well and caused a tremendous amount of problems, especially for users who recently updated to Android 14. Thankfully I have some decent monitoring and diagnostics in place so I was eventually able to figure out what was going on. I'm basically looking for testers to mess around with revoking/denying/granting permissions to make sure the app doesn't crash and the workflow/warnings are reasonably clear. I do know that if you revoke/grant permissions while the app is in use, the app sometimes requires a restart (or at least as swipe out and back in) to get the proper prompting, but it's difficult to control 100% of the scenarios with the amount of background work SCP does with methods that require special permission.
    • So I revoked the permissions before doing the update on my S21FE (Android 12) and when I reopened, it asked me for the permissions, which I granted.  No crashes, all went smoothly.  Is that what you wanted?  If so, I can repeat on a few of my other post-10 devices.  If not, let me know what to do differently. - Trip
    • A new SignalCheck beta release is rolling out now.. this includes several bugfixes, notably issues on Android 10+ devices when Location permission was not granted, and on Android 14 devices when "Allow all the time" Location permission was not granted but the app was configured to launch at device boot. Please test this version by temporarily revoking permissions for SCP and ensure the app does not crash -- it will not work very well due to Android security requirements, but that's the point..
