Sprint Cell Service
updated: Apr 28, 2014, 2:00 PM

Is anyone else having trouble with their Sprint cell service in the Santa Barbara area dropping calls, mainly in the downtown area?

Mine has been dropping calls for the past 2 weeks. Sprint said they saw the problem and would dispatch a tech but that's been several days now.

2 out of our 3 phones have had issues, the 3rd doesn't get used much so hard to tell if it's affected or not.

YES! And there are holes in the service on the Eastside where I can't make or receive calls. I have bars, and it dials, but nothing.

OP here... Sprint told me this on Wed, so maybe there is hope :
I noticed some problems therefore I have pinpointed the area and have dispatched techs to check into it. Please allow 24-72 hours for them to look into it. Thanks, Sharon Sprint Social Care

i have always had dropped calls and problems with sprint in s.b..... when i call to report the problem, they tell me they are working on installing a new tower, that, this is the cause. when i ask, when will this be completed, they can't answer me.

Yes! I'd say one in four calls are dropped, and all are choppy, cutting in and out, etc. On the Westside by Micheltorena and Robbins.

It's getting really bad lately. I've had Sprint for years, and the service has always been spotty in SB, but I feel that lately it's been even worse.

Yes. There's definitely something wrong with Sprint's signal lately.
