I am having alot of dropped calls,no signal and this past week or so the time on my phone is wrong and then you look again and its correct. It's not just me or my phone either. I know several people with sprint that from different areas and they are having the same problem. I heard its because of sprint getting the Iphone and they can't handle volume of data.AT&T had the same problem when they first got the Iphone.

Sprint is upgrading their towers for the next few months. This is going to cause alot of disruptions in their service.

We were told by the Wilmington Sprint store 2 years ago that they were upgrading their towers. Their service just sucks in this area. We now have US Cellular and love it

Sprint stinks period, even before the upgrades. My other half as well as tons of my co-workers have it for work, and they are constantly having problems, even before the upgrades. And they are expensive to boot!

Not sure what your talking about sprint being expensive I just did a whole weekend of shopping cell phone prices and was told by many like At&t they can't beat sprint on their prices. I would like to know where you found cheaper with better coverage? If it is boost they share sprint towers and the store told me if I am having trouble with sprint in my area than I would really have trouble with them because they borrow from sprints cell towers.
I also called about my sprint trouble and there is an open ticket that they are working on.They are removing the nextel off of the towers so that is why all the dropped calls. Verzion is also having these issues too because they share towers out in this area.
yup

I was told by sprint that they are upgrading their towers and it will not be complete until june 11,2012. If you are having terrible service, call sprint after june 11 and they will reimburse you, but you HAVE TO WAIT until after june 11 in order to get a credit.(so they say).
btw, i love sprint's unlimited data plan. you can't beat that and other cell companies will tell you that they can't beat sprints unlimited data plans. so whoever says they have cheaper plans, you must not use internet, email, picture mail or text. just sayin'.
Having problems also

I called Sprint and they said May 2nd and also credited my account 75$ this month... so we will see, if it doesn't improve I will call back for another credit. I am assuming that it helps that I have three phone lines with them and they are all out of contract so I can bounce whenever I want and Sprint knows it! The credit is nice but if the service doesn't get better before summer with my kids being home I will definately be looking for a new service provider.

i hate all cell phone companies. they all rape you on the prices of phones and service plans. none of them are very reliable. i have verizon. it gets decent reception, but it has its flaws. not to mention they are outrageously over priced.

Verizon is way over priced,just like At&t. My question is?If companies like Boost,Cricket and the other pre paid offer unlimited service for cheap, why don't other the top3-4 do the same?

Boost is owned by Sprint and you get the same crappy service at the same basic affordable price. So you have to choose. Do you want good service or affordable prices?
So frustrated with Sprint

Just called Sprint because of the crappy service and they only wanted to compensate me $5 over 4 months. They also said that the tower project would not be complete until the end of August. Time for me to start shopping around.

Like a woman? Depends on the time of the month?

Well with Sprint it sucks all the time. So it still sounds like an improvement.
