It’s not your imagination,. It’s not the "network". It’s the phone.
I just added a S3 to my account & still have my EVO 4G active & side by side there is no comparison.
My EVO has 3-4 bars in my house & works great, phone & internet. The S3 side by side has 1-2 bars & can’t connect to the Sprint Network until I go outside.
Then it works great!
I’m planning to get it replaced ASAP.
BTW… Sprint is in the process of "upgrading" their network from Lucent to Samsung Head End equipment at the cell sites. That along with the transition of the frequency licenses from Nextel to Sprint as they shut down the antiquated iDEN system will result in great improvement for Sprint coverage. But it will likely be a rocky transition as they fine tune the newly configured network. Hang in there… once they get it all up & running and flush out all the bugs Sprint will become THE network to have. It’s already THE carrier to have based on their customer service alone.
I "ported" my home phone (AT&T) to my new S3 and it was a very enlightening experience. As I had to go back & forth from calling AT&T to calling Sprint, I found myself on hold w/AT&T for an AVERAGE of 30min. I NEVER waited any longer than 1 min to get an English speaking, well trained human at Sprint.
I don’t know how AT&T stays in business!
