Sprint not working really well for me at work

I have been using Sprint now for a number of years and honestly the service has always been spotty at best. But the last few weeks or so at around 12 in the afternoon, my phone goes into roaming or 1/x and I can't even send texts or get on my Apps, etc. I work in the Earth City, MO area and especially when I am indoors, the service is HORRIBLE.

On a side note, in my condo which is in the St. Louis area as well, I get horrible coverage and dropped calls. If I did not have WiFi, I would problably have even worse coverage.

I have the Samsung Nexus S 4G phone and its about 1 month old.

I have already talked to Sprint Customer Service and they escalated the ticket to a Network person who actually is on the streets.

I have also ...

E-mail contact for current customer

Is there an E-mail contact for customer support... I tried calling, but couldn't get my story to sound right... Thought, if I could just put everything down in an email...

My Rant
I recently move down from Ohio to WV.

I had a 614 area code on my cell phone.

Eventually I came up with the idea of getting a virtual phone number with a 304 area code.

Now, how was I to switch them.

I borrowed a phone from a friend and started up a new account, and had my 304 phone number ported in. This went with no problems.

I than switched the phone numbers for the two phone, so my 304 number was on my EVO.

After a couple weeks, of thinking about it. I decided to cancel my other phone that now had the 614 number. I did...

Just got the Evo 3D at my store

In fact, I'm typing on it now. The only feature that's 3D on the phone, apparently, is the photo gallery. And it's making me dizzy : /

Sprint still buying contracts?

I called customer service but the girl didn't seem to know (she would answer my questions with "i think") so figured I should check with the pro's here.

I have 2 lines with VZW....the ETF's total around 250-300....i know sprint was running a promo to buyout that still going on?

also, what is the etf for sprint smartphones?

how often do the primary and secondary lines able to get new phones at discounted prices?

thanks everyone,

Optimus Slider

Anyone have any information on the LG Optimus Slider? Will it be 3G?

I cannot get a 4G phone due to plan restrictions and there is no 4G in my area so I am not paying the fee when I cannot even get the service.

I can't choose between the HTC Evo Shift and the Samsung Epic


I'm going to be switching to Sprint soon, and I can't choose between the EVO Shift and the Epic. I love having a physical keyboard, and from looking at all their phones I've narrowed it down to those two. What should I do? What should I pick? Is there something else I should hold out for?

My contract with US Cellular runs out June 28th, so that's when I'd switch.

Any and all help is appreciated!

iPhone 4s on Sprint

I realize nothing has been confirmed by Apple nor Sprint, but the rumor of the iPhone coming to Sprint makes me very happy. I cannot wait to have an iPhone and have my Sprint service drive it.

Phone like the G2X/Sensation for Sprint (Upcoming phones)

While I live in Auckland, NZ I still travel to the USA quite a bit for work. Currently I have a G2X with T-Mobile (unlocked, rooted running CM7 nightly) that I connect to a Sprint MiFi hotspot for data purposes.

My TMO coverage is suspect at best whereas my Sprint MiFi is incredible and because of that I usually have my G2X connected to the Mifi with Wifi calling enabled. Since I can get some fairly heavy discounts with Sprint through my client (23% monthly discount with $200 hardware credit per annum on approved devices) I'm thinking about just dropping TMO and going solely with Sprint.

What I need help with is that the current Android lineup for Sprint is underwhelming when compared to my G2X which is one of the best phones I ever ...
