I have exactly the same problem in Denver (80004, 80227, 80918). If I'm in neighborhoods, even a block or two off the main roads, I get no signal in my Samsung Galaxy S II. I have to have a home antenna booster in my home to get a signal and I'm in a major suburb in Denver just a block away from a major road. I have moved three times into other major suburbs and every time it's the same story. This was happening with my previous HTC EVO phone as well. It's the network. All my friends with different networks get full bars in my neighborhood. When I talk to Sprint they say they are upgrading the towers but it never happens. And yes, I now pay extra for 4G and can't even get a normal 3G signal most of the time.
I live in 55122 and work in 55120 - have been having a lot of issues with signal lately. GPS has been awful! Always getting a weak signal. Didn't used to!!
YES!! The worst issues, the best i can explain is that ever since the new software it has gotten worse! It never seems to get data service, hard time downloading, it re-sets my settings sometimes up to 5 times a day? i am so damn tired of payingh for something that does not work.. Do we bother Samsung or Sprint with these issues? These companies want to upsel, make $$$$ BUT they cant delioevr and we are all jjust a bunch of pawns in a pawn shop! The old flip phone works and worked! But a tab or an i-pad its less exspensive and pay for the old phone the cost ios much better and you will get service! and a device that actually works.. very disapopinted with the samsung galaxy 2!
i live in VA Beach and have been told by so may Sprint people "its getting better" working on the network? I typically only have 2 bars on my phone, hard time uploading, downloading you name it! I am reading about so many peopel having these issues? Is teh grass greener with another company? How can Sprint sell a service they can't deliver.. Its mind-boggling to me!
we all need to dump Sprint i have the same exact issues, no bars, no service but the VERIZON and At&T phones seem to work fine!
Since where I live, signal quality was only bad in my house that was on the outskirts of the city and pretty good inside the city, we decided to use a Sprint program called the AiRave (http://now.sprint.com/airave/?ECID=vanity:airaveac
