Mississippi Gulf Coast coverage?

I've had Sprint for years, with the promise that coverage will be getting better, but it doesnt.

Can anyone confirm that coverage will expand beyond I-10 and Hwy 90?

Currently, I have NO SIGNAL when in Wal-Mart or the casinos. My contract is up next month and I'll be seriously looking elswhere!

Not knowing where in Mississippi you  are I cannot look at information f or your area.   If you can give me cross streets city and state near where you have problems I will be happy to see what I can find for you.

Wal-Mart in Ocean Springs, MS - no service

3911 Bienville Blvd  zip 39564

Wal-Mart in D'Iberville, MS - no service

3615 Sangani Blvd zip 39540

and others in Biloxi and in casinos.

I've tried setting my phone for roaming also.

Re: Mississippi Gulf Coast coverage?

You mention two different Wal-marts   I do show those two locations to be roaming.  I can not say if there will be new towers built in this area. 

Are you able to use your device when you are outside of the store?    Given the area I can understand if the building is blocking the signal inside of the store. 

I cannot promise that there will be an change in the coverage you have at this time.

Re: Mississippi Gulf Coast coverage?

yes. Outside it works fine. But it's very inconvenient to have to go outside in the middle of shopping to make a call. The same with inside casinos.

I've been a loyal customer for many years and their have been improvements. But, the length of time taken to get those improvements is less than satisfactory. I'm afraid I will be forced to get better coverage elsewhere if things dont change very soon.

Re: Mississippi Gulf Coast coverage?

As I stated above  our coverage maps show that  both Wal-mart locations are in fringe coverage actually out of coverage and you may not get service inside the building.  The over all coverage in the area and the construction of the building both contribute to this.   The casino may be a different matter it may be   the building itself that is blocking the signal.   With the upgrade of the towers to Network Vision towers  the signal will have more in building penetration.  However I cannot tell you exactly when this will happen other than by the end of 2013.
