House catches fire, Sprint Fails.

The first call on the 27-year-old’s phone resulted in a fast busy signal. His second attempt ended in a dropped call. The third time, he called, he got a “signal faded” message on his phone.

At that point, Tim threw the cell phone in a neighbor’s back yard and asked some kids on the sidewalk to call 911, according to his mother, Terri Del Buono.

Sick of Dropped Calls? Me Too.

Welcome to SprintFail.com.  This site is intended to give current and past disgruntled Sprint Wireless customers a place to vent.  For the last several days, I have had EVERY single call DROP.  Not only me, but a lot of people in my area are posting on Facebook about their problems with Sprint.  ANd a lot of people are giving different asnwers as to what Sprint is telling them, dates for a remedy in particular, stretching form just one day all the way to three months.  As for me, a biz cusomter with four lines, they offered me a $25.00 credit.  To that I say, Suck My Signal and Bite My Bars.  All one of them.  See, my phone goes from zero to three bars and back in less than 60 milliseconds.  I called Sprint, and they had to call me back twice because of dropped calls.  Funny thing is, they ask you at the beginning, what is a good number to call you back at in case we lose the call.  Nothing like honesty.  So today is just the beginning.  I am likely going to port my numbers out, and Sprint is likely going to try and bill me and charge me a  fee for early termination of my contract. I will keep you updated, and I will also open this site to the community of users to opine and report problems and pool our information so that as a group we can confront Sprint and fight the charges of they levy on us as a group.  There is power in numbers, and Sprint is going to have a PR problem they really dont need right now.  You know, you cant hear a Pin Drop when there is nobody on the other end, and you cant brag about an unlimited data plan for a smartphone when you cant even keep a signal for more than a few minutes. Yes, your data is limited by dropped signals.   Stay Tuned.
UPDATE:
Today is April 12th and the problem continues.  I have just filed a complaint with the better business bureau.  Sprint has been telling customers too bad, deal with it until June. Sorry. Not happening.
