Was a long time Sprint user and since the TMobile merger the service and wifi have been awful as they do the complete take over.

Today though, I'm not getting any wifi connectivity from my phone at all. Anybody else having issues?

Is it just social media youre having problems with? Several are down worldwide.

No issues today, but it's been pretty bad for us all year. I have NO service in the Southwest Parkway area between Texas and Wellborn and my kids' service sucks in various ways from WiFi to data around town.

I went and switched out my SIM card at their suggestion and it helped somewhat. When I asked about the issues the guy kinda shrugged and said it's due to them upgrading to 5G and it "should be better by end of the year." I dunno if I completely buy that, but I'm willing to wait and see if it improves rather than move five phones to a different carrier.

Identical to our experience there.

I use WhatsApp a lot and ya mostly that. Texts are ok. Calls are spotty as per the normal lately with T Mobile/Sprint.

Ok, apparently its a nationwide Whatsapp/FB/IG thing.

Shows how reliant I am on Whatsapp.

If your problem started today with social media sites, that is just an outage.
Sprint/TMOBILE service is in the trash can all over town for the past year. We are not sure what to do in certain areas with no good signal and without WIFI. It is very annoying

We've been long time Sprint customers also and several months ago, T-Mobile sent us a free sim card to swap out to get on their network, worse move ever! I frequently have connection problems and wifi issues. I'll try to make a phone call and then I can't hear anything while the other party can hear me, if the call actually connects after multiple attempts.

T-Mobile is either excellent or unusable in BCS for us, the briarcrest Walmart parking lot is probably the most notorious black hole. But some places I get 4 bars 5g and 100gig speed.
I had AT&T before and still had coverage/speed complaints for what it's worth so it's not bad enough for me to switch from T-Mobile.

Thanks to both of you.

And I agree on the Walmart dead spot.
