That supports the theory that 919 customers do not have issues.

would like to hear from others that are having problems as to their area codes.

I am 919, and have had some issues.
Only one cross call that I know of, so phone service has been pretty good.
Not too discouraged with my phone service.

But I have had ongoing tediously unreliable 3G and 4G service.

Live and work in the 919, but my phone is area code 734 -- have had some issues, though am not a big phone user, so don't notice things to the degree that others do. My clock has been off by an hour for the last week +, though.

All of my family have area codes from Michigan. You could be on to something.

Tons of probs with sprint after moving here.

- dialing out, phone "connects" to network but no rings audible and no sound (full bars). Never know if person has picked up on the other end, or it actually rang the remote phone

- dialing out, many cases where it just never connects to remote line (full bars) (e.g. "Connecting..." is displayed)

- incoming calls, calls frequently go straight to VM (full bars), sometimes the VM indicator takes several hours

Always heard that they were terrible, but never had an issue with them until moving here....(moved from Dallas area, 817 area code). My wife also has sprint and has the same issues.

Definitely will not re-up with sprint.

what surprises me is the length of time this outage has been occurring. This thread started 10/24. Complete embarrassment.
