Network outages and different kinds of problems with cellular service are not common. However, they often occur, and are a real pain, so we will teach you how to fix this problem at once.
Sprint is not a bad operator, thing is we have to accept that this isn’t under anyone’s control. When an outage occurs, we need to contact sprint technical support right away, and they will immediately come and fix it. Of course, there are different kinds of problems, it’s not the same to report a signal tower breakdown than a problem with LTE.
This is a factor that may cause the time the take to fix it to vary or change. Or may represent a major problem than the other. The important thing to know is, that usually these problems are solved after less than 24 hours.

What to do if my Sprint cellular data is not working?
In case your cellular mobile data is not working with sprint the most probable thing is there is a network problem. You should report this right away; you can do it from the T-Mobile app or through the webpage.
You will receive a notification when the problem is fixed, and you will have everything working normally. There is also another option, if you are close by from a T-Mobile technical support it will work too.
Go there and talk to anyone, they will inform the manager. Ask you about the problems you experience, and go fix it. This what you have to do in case you have problems with mobile data, internet connection, or LTE signal.
However, before reporting any problem with the LTE signal, you should really check if that’s the case. You don’t want to get all embarrassed when everyone realizes there is no problem with the signal, but didn’t turn the data on!
So, before reporting any inconvenient, try the following:
- Reset your data or your phone and try connecting once again.
- If you are out of the country, make sure you have the data roaming option on. Go to settings > Cellular > Data roaming.
- Check out and take out your SIM card, and check if it is damaged or burnt.
- Try to connect to the same connection with a different device, to confirm is not your phone only.
- If your iPhone or iPad isn’t updated to the latest version that may cause problems with networking.
How to report a problem with the Sprint network?
Apart from the two options mentioned above, there is also another option. We will put everything in a list so you can know exactly what you should do:
Report a problem through the T-Mobile app: Remember that sprint is owned by the T-Mobile corporation since 2015. So, having the T-Mobile app will allow you to review your sprint service status and have support.
You should go to the bottom right and tap the option that reads “pinpoint my experience”. Here you will be prompted with different questions to determine the cause of the problem. Then, you will be given instructions to follow so the problem is solved as fast as possible.
Report a problem through the T-Mobile or Sprint website: It’s pretty much the same if you go to the T-Mobile or the Sprint website, the process is similar. However, I would recommend you to go to the Sprint webpage, some users have reported it to be faster.
You will easily find the great button that says “report an outage” on the support page, similar to the T-Mobile website. Again, you will have to describe your problem by answering the questions. Once this is done, they will tell you the steps to follow to solve the problem. Normally the answer means “wait, we are on our way to fix it”.
Call the Sprint customer service phone number: 866-866-7509 is the phone number you should be calling to report any issue. This is Sprint’s support number, in case of any difficulty encountered with their service, call here. You will probably have to wait for a little to get your call taken by an operator, but not too much.
Why do outages happen?
They usually occur due to natural disasters, really tough rains, or because of old equipment damage. Also, the service in the area, in general, could be disabled to repair the service in a different area.
Another problem with the sprint network system could be the interference that may appear depending on the weather. Usually, hard rains or snow could provoke the system to not work properly or jam the signal.
There are many reasons why this might happen, however, if is a programmed outage for reparations you should get notified first. This is why you should have your T-Mobile app installed just in case.
Is Sprint T-Mobile now?
You can’t actually say the Sprint is T-Mobile now, but that Sprint is the property of T-Mobile now. T-Mobile is a telecommunications corporation dedicated to providing service to all the United States through different companies. One of these companies is sprint, which is one of the best companies in telecommunications in the country.
How do I reset my T-Mobile signal?
If you have an android device, you should go to settings and then network. There you will find the option to reset APN/MMSC settings to their default. However, if you are an iPhone user, go to settings, general, reset, reset network settings.
This could be advantageous for the occasions you want to check if your phone is misconfigured or something like that. If you have no connection, and still have no connection after resetting, is highly probable there is an outage.
how do I get credit for sprint service outage credit?
Credits are rewards given by Sprint that will reduce your bill for that month. They are usually granted to users when seizing promotional discounts, offers, or by overpayment in their previous bill. However, you should go and check out if they actually grant credits to the users when they report a problem or not.
