Default PRL Thread (Current 3036) 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).

Downgrading your PRL can be accomplished via the link above. I will add how to do it via LGNPST soon.

My metro corp here said they were gonna launch 4g around sept-Oct here, so I'm still waiting on it, I am looking at other carriers though. Hopefully they do launch it soon.

Got damn it why is that every time I update my Prl my network gets worse. And the 4g becomes even slower then the crap it is. I live in Fort Lauderdale, Florida and even when I have full 4 bars the network is slow. And now after updating the prl on my connect it shows 1005 lol. Going to do it manually hopefully someone already posted the new prl.

What part of Cali are you in? Most of Cali has 4G, but there are places that are well populated that are not covered such as Fresno, Santa Barbara, San Diego.

Is there a place in Settings (or elsewhere) that shows the PRL installed on my phone? If so, please post the path to finding it. I did dial *228, Option 5, and assume I am current, but would like to know how to see which PRL is installed on phone for future use.

Thanks!

Default Please help me with this PRL update thinggummer

I know what it is, but wasn't fully clear how to update it from the instructions in the pinned thread. (Short bus here?) I saw the #228 part in the pinned thread and dialed that and it asked if I wanted to download the latest list. Then's when I got skeered of not knowing what I was doing and punched out of the call.

I immediately FREEKED! as I went to EV from 4G. I figured I'd hosed something up as it said activation not completed and I know I am. I rebooted the phone and 4G back, dropped to EV for a couple seconds then went back to 4G where it is now. I guess all that was just normal fluctuation from my 1-2 bars of 4G?

Can I update the PRL just from the phone at *228 or do I have to download the PRL thinggummer from somewhere else? I do appear to have an out of date one as it's 3029.

Exactly how do I do this please? Type slowly please.

You can update to the latest prl by dialing *228 just choose option 5 and let it do its thing and when it's done just reboot your phone you can also manually update the prl too by using qpts or something similar

Yeah just do *228 and let it do its thing. It can be done manually with QPST (see the threads in the Motion forum), but considering what you've just been through I don't think you want to mess with that.

If you ever find that after you update the current PRL, your phone maybe slowed down compared to the previous PRL, there is a couple ways to revert back or install any PRL that you choose. Maybe you knew this but just thought I would throw it out there.


Hope you are enjoying your Motion Bruce. Happy New Year homie

Yep this is where QPST comes in. No way to revert to an earlier PRL through Metro, you have to do it yourself.

I updated my Motion to 3032 and thankfully the Signal seems much stronger and more stable. I am more constantly in the 4 Mps area than the 1-2 Mps before. I've been to one of the "power alleys" in town where it was pegging 4 bars (instead of the 1-2 bars here) and was just getting into the 5 Mps area there so I'm much happier being in the 4's here.

ok as promised now i havn't tried it yet just been so busy lately but ill perhaps try later.

keep in mind this was made for the metro gs3 and was designed to allow us to roam on sprint's evdo. with that being said it may or may not work for your phone. my source told me he had a hard time making it stick to his gs3. goodluck and enjoy experimenting!

I tried out 9033 on the 3g Admire just for the hell of it. On 3032, average speeds were about 2.20 Mbs. On 9033, I was all over the place. Jumping up to 2.27, falling to 0.97 and everywhere in between.

It hasn't been officially released yet, so I don't think it is the final version of 9033, is it n4zty???

DL Speeds are 0.05MB/s on this new PRL on the original Admire. Before on 3032 it was about 0.20MB/s down...

Anyone know how to flash a PRL to the Motion? QPST won't detect the Motion...

Same here. I averaged 0.27 MB/s on 3032 and 0.15 MB/s on 9033

Lol like I said this was for the gs3 it hasnt been released yet was made to allow gs3 user to be able to roam on sprints evdo. Some people had some success some didnt. Also like was said in previous post above this isnt final version seems like they had some issues with sprints towers in some areas so they working on improving things.
