he PRL helps determine which home-network towers to use, and also which towers belonging to other networks to use in roaming situations (areas where the home network has no coverage.) When roaming, the PRL may instruct the phone to use the network with the best roaming rate for the carrier, rather than the one with the strongest signal at the moment.

Since a PRL tells the phone "where" to search for a signal, as carrier networks change over time, an updated PRL may be required for a phone to "see" all of the coverage that it should, both with the home network and for roaming.

Has anyone been able to load this PRL onto an Esteem? Using QPST, I can go up and down with any of the 30xx PRLs but it fails every time I try to write 2031.

Hello i'm from Ecuador (South America) and i just got this phone to try it out in my city. Do you recommend me to use the prl posted?. I just finished updating to stock ZVD and the prl i got from the update is: 20033.

Also (and sorry for the offtopic) should i stay on stock ZVD or do you guys recommend me a custom ROM as always to improve speeds and get rid of all the METRO bloatware as i'm not going to need it.

Thanks in advance!

No, don't flash this PRL. It is only for MetroPCS customers. You will lose service with your current provider if you flash any PRL besides the one your service provider flashed.

Edit: if you don't have a provider and you flash it, you won't notice a difference. The PRL tells the phone which cell towers to connect to.

It's not being pushed by *228 in a lot of places. In fact, one of my friends recently got a Motion, the box says PRL 3033, I dialed *228 with his phone and it downgraded to 3032.

Doesn't matter. We all have metro phones. The only phone treated special with PRLs is the Galaxy S3.

If you all want the 3033 PRL, go to the LG Motion forum, it's in there.

Sorry I never posted the file here, have been very busy.

Also the S3 got a PRL update to 2034!!

You should be able to push the prl with cdma work shop, I bought the program and qpst, as well as lgpnst, all of those I have.

At this point I wonder if its a botched update that is causing it, my lte speed is lower down then I am used to seeing, but still working.

So soon a zvf should be out with a better update to fix and repairing all misteaks made and maybe a 237 or higher . This could be why this device is still 3 dollars

However I did have the full version for long enough it did what I needed and I am happy about that.

The PRL helps determine which home-network towers to use, and also which towers belonging to other networks to use in roaming situations (areas where the home network has no coverage.) When roaming, the PRL may instruct the phone to use the network with the best roaming rate for the carrier, rather than the one with the strongest signal at the moment.

Since a PRL tells the phone "where" to search for a signal, as carrier networks change over time, an updated PRL may be required for a phone to "see" all of the coverage that it should, both with the home network and for roaming.

I dont know if or what the difference is but every time I get a prl update it goes to 1005.

I put 3033 on did a *228 and update prl and got 1005.

If anyone wants to look at it and see what it is here it is.

I see you have been creating a problem . Since the prl isnt 3033 and is still 3032 . If u force the 3033 or any prl to the phone with qpst or lgpnst u cant use *228 it will push you back to the current prl cause this is what u have asked if u dial *228 it will update your device prl back to current which would be 3032. This is cause u forced a prl to the phone . The system see it as the wrong and will update u to the device current prl.

No the system updated it to 1005, no matter what, if I go to *228 it does it, if I leave it after a few days it goes to 1005.
