    Re: Sprnt having issues lately?

    There could be a few different reasons for it but the most likely is
    that you are on a NID (network identification) border. That means that
    your phone is pulling in signal from two or more towers at the same
    time that are linked to different network switches. What happens is
    the paging channel tries to locate the phone to deliver the incoming
    call but fails to find the phone in time because the phone is bouncing
    between different switches (NID's). This is a common problem and
    there's nothing that can be done by anyone to fix it.

    Yep you could be on the boundary of two different switches. The type
    of phone you use doesn't matter in these situations because it's the
    network that's at fault.

    Yeah that sounds like it could be a severe case of pilot pollution.
    What happens is that the phone will pick up PN offsets from two
    different towers and bounce back and forth between them. But one of
    towers is either too far away or has too much interference from terrain
    or obstacles and as a result has a super high EC/IO (noise pollution in
    the signal) to be of much use. When you're on the good tower things
    can be fine. But when the phone picks up the bad tower is when your
    signal goes way down.
