Replying to:  Has anyone else had problems with the Sprint Direct Connect? by appoloosa   Jul 6, 2012, 9:13 PM

Re: Has anyone else had problems with the Sprint Direct Connect?

We used Nextel for several years in Direct Connect only and never had problems in downtown DC. When Sprint told us we had no choice but to change to their phones we've had nothing but problems. I'm in downtown DC and cannot even get a signal most of the time. In the building I work in we use the direct connects to talk to our employees and usually cannot even get a signal when standing next to a window. HELLO!!!

We ended up with the Kyocera phones which are apparently on a different wavelength than the old Nextels and is apparently a wavelength that doesn't carry very far. We get many error messages saying "Waiting to connect to direct connect" or "User not available" even if the person is down the same hallway.

Anyone have any suggestions who else to use but USELESS SPRINT?
