Can someone please verify if this actually works now, I returned my S6 but would love to go back to it. It was a great phone and I'm really missing the camera, screen, and features of the S6 that my Moto X just doesn't have. But I cant have a phone that doesn't work so I'm really hoping this is a fix.
I can confirm that this is not a fix. I spoke with a Sprint Senior representative today. She confirmed the issue (finally!) and said that when a new phone comes out Sprint's network often cannot handle it. She said it could take months for a fix. And as my 14 day period is about to end, she said she would hate to see me get stuck with a phone that doesn't work to its fullest capacity with no timeline for when it will work. She asked if I would be interested in a different phone, tried all the usual troubleshooting, so tomorrow I will be switching to Verizon. She is the first individual to acknowledge the problem, but also had no idea on a timeline. She said technician have to get out to the towers and rectify the problem. I am not willing to wait or pay for what service that doesn't work. I've been following this thread since the beginning and have researched every carrier; Sprint is the only one with this issue. Not sure if that helps anyone, but I thought I would relay the information.
The first thing i did was to call Sprint. The rep i spoke with said the same thing, return the phone while i still can, that there was no time frame for a fix and they were aware there was a problem. I returned my phone as soon as i could well with in Best Buys 14 day (13 day) return policy. I got a hard time from the BB employee i returned the phone to but thats BB. I wasn't crazy about the lease deal anyway. I'll wait to later once the bugs are worked out and this phone's sales dive due to problems and get a better deal, or get a LG G4 or an iPhone 6+
Good for you av402css, I went over the 14 days, and the Customer service kept lying to me, and the store employees also kept lying to me. I lost over $800 and I switched to AT&T and bought another phone, I traded my Note Edge for $225.00 but I don't care. I could have sold it on the internet but I did not want another person to suffer with sprint.
I Had the dropped calls on a galaxy s6. After 5 days I returned in within the 14 day period. I switched to att, could not be happier. I found Verizon is having the same issue due to them also using cdma.
I really think you are all wrong about the problem even though I'm stuck with it too. I think it's because sprint it trying to implement the" spark" part and they only have it in a few cities but on all of our g6's the radio is turned on. So, everytime we go from one tower without it to another tower without it, it tries first to connect to that and then to the rest which fails. I think that's why cdma works. I'd rather you prove me wrong instead of talk about other things for a minute, because if we solve the problem maybe they can make a solution.
Where did you hear that Verizon users are having problems? I've been following this on other carriers and haven't seen an issue, except one lady who didn't have her mobile data turned on!
