Sprint Throttles my data service everyday

I use to get decent data service during the day from my Sprint service. 

 

Unfortunately, within the past 4 months my service has been restricticted during the afternoons between 3 and 7pm. I’m in Charlotte NC and have experienced extreme restriction in my service during this time in the Charlotte area. As well, I get virtually no service in the border areas of SC that cover South of Charlotte. This has been happening within the past 6 months. Sprint service isn’t getting better like I’ve been promised for the past 8 years, it’s getting WORSE!

I know how important it is to be able to use your phone. Lets check on the coverage within your area, what's your zip code?

I’m in 28277, 28173, 28110, 28104, 28105, 28269, 28273, 29707, 29710, 29720. 

 

My work takes me all over the Charlotte area every day. It’s a service problem, period. My associates have Verizon and their service is always better hands down.

I have checked the coverage in that area and it's showing that you have great coverage. What we can do is do some troubleshooting steps to try and fix this issue.

 

Please answer the following questions:

 

-Are there any other Sprint phones experiencing this issue?

-What type of phone do you have?

-What all troubleshooting steps have you done?

Re: Sprint Throttles my data service everyday

All of my phones, especially mine. It is a iPhone 7plus. Turn phone on and off all the time, call sprint update number all the time. I’ve been in zip code 29720 and when calling sprint update I receive a FAILED response. That is a clear indication that service is NOT great in those zip codes. You are not being truthful. It’s sprint service that is the problem. I will continue posting on many forums about this until the problem is corrected or my contract term is up for renewal and then will go to Verizon.

I promise I'm trying to help you, I just need to understand what's going on. Have you tried to perform the update while attached to Wi-Fi? When that update is finished, it should help with the reception of the phone. I would like to do some additional troubleshooting once it's done.

I have updated with WiFi many times. Same non-results. It’s the service.

Ok what I would like to do next is get some additional info so I can refresh all the elements of the phone to see if that would help. I'm going to private message you.
