Default Change PRL for Better service?

hi i was wondering if it was a way to change my Kyocera rises prl to roam on a Verizon tower for better service. I've seen many sites with how to do this but can't find out how to do it on my phone. if there is a way please let me no because i live in a poor 3G area. i barely can get 250kbps.

Not likely, as you can't even manually refresh this phone's PRL or profile.

Not so far as I know, especially to use Verizon's towers. At that point, you may also be violating Verizon's terms of use as well and could face legal action if caught.

Changing the prl will not give you faster data, its just sprints network. It sucks in a lot of areas.

You can't just swap a prl and get on Verizon's network.

From the guys that mod and develop prls.

What is a PRL? - Sprint 4G Rollout Updates

The speed increase can be a placebo, or the resetting of the network when flashing the prl, kinda like using airplane mode to reset the connection, it can change speeds.

I haven't tried it on this phone or seen a tutorial. Normally it requires a program to flash the prl (like qpst), the ability to get into the programing menu, along with the msl number. But the proper steps for this phone I don't know. But IMO its not worth the time to figure it out, if there was a tut maybe.

Well... sort of. I once got a Sprint Sanyo M1 on to Verizon by feeding it a hacked PRL (lots of work, that!) Data didn't work obviously but voice did and that's all I cared about.
