I have called Sprint customer service a number of times to complain about my calls getting dropped, but I can't get a full conversation in without dropping the call. I live in Pearland, TX and have had this problem for 5 days. My husband is also on my plan and having the same problems. Internet is in and out as well....so far the only thing that seems to work ok is Text messaging.
I am sorry you are having these issues. I checked our network just based on the zip code provided and there are no voice related outages. However, we are experiencing 3G outages in your area but that only effects Boost devices. On the 9th of March we experienced problems in the Houston area 3G Browsing (Out of service) and that outage has been closed. Are your dropped calls indoors or everywhere?
The dropped calls seem to be happening everywhere. However, I haven't gone many places since I had surgery on Friday. We had a huge storm over the weekend so I figured there was a problem due to that, but I expected it to be fixed by now. I have the HTC 3D and my husband has the Evo Shift. I have updated all the software, taken the battery out, and done all I can think of.....but I even drop calls when I call my voicemail. The internet is sparce, and slow when I do get it.
hey mark she also stopped off at a sprint store and was advised that the issue isnt just with them.
figured i would throw that in there. can a repair store or any sprint store start a ticket for a tower issue if theyre getting multiple walk in and call in reports of the same issue with different phones in a certain area?
Hello and thank you for reporting this issue. We need to report this problem to our network teams. The tower in Pearland, TX has had "active alarms" in the past 30 days and engineers are servicing and monitoring the status of this tower, but we need more specific examples of the problems customers may be experiencing.

Dont belive anything sprint tells you, I was told the same exact thing that tomdeaver posted and live in a diffrent area then you and it seems towers are having issue everywhere and nothing is being resolved. I dont thinks sprint even know what there talking about there just telling everyone the same thing
well i signed up with sprint just for the 4G LTE in 77583 zip code and guess what i get on my Samsung Nexus.
I get a coverage map of the best possible 4G LTE WOOHOO!!!......but my phone says 3G 1 BAR........... ***
Talk about super speeds..........................psh
0.20download and 0.10upload if im lucky!
WOW i think dial up is faster then that.
Amazing speed thanks sprint for your amazing coverage map! I'm spending $110 a month for dropped calls, lost signal, phone dieing due to the nexus searching for signal constantly eating up battery life.
Btw the Nexus gets super hot in the back ...not regular hot or just warm ... I MEAN HOT! the battery dies within 2 hours searching for signals, i gotta put it in airplane mode and use it as a paperweight.
Sprint your amazing!
