    Default Getting Frustrated with HTC One & Sprint

    Im on my second Phone, first one had trouble with the voice connection.... had that replaced and this one is having data problems... prl wont update, profile will update after 6 or 7 tries... Sprint store blames the network... when i call sprint they say the towers are operating at 100% and they blame the device... Ive gone back and forth to 3 stores and every one points the finger at the towers/and the other to the device... I love this phone, and need a decent data connection for my job... hopefully they will get it worked out tomorrow when I take it in.

    Maybe it's time for a new carrier. :-)

    If you have replaced the device twice and same problems I would bet something is wrong with the network and not the phone.

    Sprints good for the run around with its customers.

    If your Evo works and your One doesn't then it's clearly the device and not the network. Have them swap it out.

    Updating your PRL isn't going to help the data connection at all.

    I agree DarthMO. The Sprint Store keeps saying that even if they are side by side, they use different towers and connections. Mcantu, I just learned that the PRL updates are tied to Voice and messaging, while updating the profile can have an effect on the data. Im taking it in this morning to have the techs look at it.

    Techs will not be able to fix it in store. I recommend you exchange the phone without hesitation, if they don't want to tell them you'll cancel the account!

    They're probably giving you the runaround so they won't have to deal with the paperwork.

    How long have you had that phone?
    Anyway, it's not your fault the phone has issues.

    Warranty replacements go through the manufacturer or in this case HTC. To do it in the store without insurance it will be $50. Sprint isn't the manufacturer so it's not up to them to honor the manufacturer warranty.

    Got the typical run around... "All phones do different things differently.... " Yes Some work and some don't... He offered to replace the phone for a $50 charge... Tech support wouldn't even look at it... he said all they could do is do a hard reset which Ive already done.... I called amazon wireless and they are replacing the phone for the second time, no questions asked... I did turn on CDMA only and have a much better connection. Makes me wonder if theres a porblem with the 4G antenna. Hopefully the replacement will work better... Its on backorder till the end of June.

    Also, with problems like this, just call sprint and have them re-provision your phone It only takes a couple minutes. Sometimes at setup, your phone pings off a tower that might be getting a certain upgrade and is sending out wonky signals. At this point, your phone is set with those wonky signals and doesn't work like it should. Every time I have had this issue, provisioning has fixed my issue.

    Been a Sprint customer for 12 years (and no, I don't live anywhere near LTE) and I have had good phone service and have had decent customer service. I'm sure others will disagree but that's been my situation.

    Normally I get good customer service and tech service with Sprint, yea I've had a few csr a-holes before but my problems would be taken care of by someone else.

    This is pretty close to deal breaker service. Are they the only decent carrier in your area? Having problems is one thing, but it should never be turned around on you to take responsibility for them sucking.

    I agree. But Verizon and AT&T at times are no better. I remember when my dad was with AT&T and him battling it out over him dropping calls left and right and them telling him to "stay in a coverage area...have a good day!" I put him on my plan with Sprint the very next day and he is happy.

    Went to the sprint store today and The girl asked which kind of phone I had... I told her and then she asked if I had tried to take the battery out yet...
    Then...
    Wait for it....
    CSR @ sprint today asked me if I could take the battery out for the first step of troubleshooting...

    I don't hold this against the reps.. Most have a tool that they are walking you through trouble shooting steps to try and resolve your issues.. There are Alot of different phones out there and they are human.. I just told the rep on the phone a few days ago that my phone doesn't have a removable battery and she said Ok and we moved on with the trouble shooting.. I can handle that Better than wrong information like move apps to Sd card which is just ignorance

    Ah Sprint how I remember those days. Back in the late 90s, if you got your voicemail within 3 days, it was a blessing.
