Lightbulb PRL Thread (Current 3033) Please post new ones here when available.

Definition for prl: The Preferred Roaming List, basically a way of telling your phone which towers to connect to first.
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.

Your PRL can be update via your phone by dialing *228 and choosing option #5(preferred roaming list).

Are there any in particular that work better than others? I know sometimes loading up new PRL's can be a hit or miss in terms of resolving signal problems.

It all depends on YOUR location really-just have to run some speed test with them to see which one works better for you
