GASP members might like to know this stuff!!!
Okay, I invented GASP... It's Grandmas Against Smart Phones, but hey, they might still want to upgrade their "feature" phones...
Im pretty sure its possible long as it uses the same prl method. Just have to find programs that support it as well as a way to figure out how to change it. QPST should work for most.

That's why they shouldn't be doing it in the first place.

Exclamation On BOOTCAMP/Windows7 Ultimate

I am in Miami,FL (by FIU/Calle Ocho)
I got a 2011 27" iMac with Windows7 Ultimate on a Bootcamp partition.
So it's like I have a Win7 pc
I tried downloading drivers for the USB connection for my Indulge and I get NOTHING showing up. Tried following several posts to find USB drivers and download and says installed but still............nothing.
I download the QPST and followed the directions and there are no ports showing up. Just COM1/COM2
So where would I get the USB drivers for the Indulge that can work on Win7 Ultimate?
Anyone else have this problem?
I want to update the PRL to 3024 on my Indulge and do it for my wife's Opti M. Both phones are rooted.
And that thread for doing the Opti M to PRL 3020/23/24,etc....that's NOT to informative. This on for the Indulge is pretty straight and to the point, and this person can complete sentence structure and not type in pre-teen speak....IMHO. That for the Opti M is hard to follow...

Lightbulb Can't see your port?

For everyone running windows 7 and not being able to see your port on the add port screen, here is how I worked around it. I only saw COM1 and COM2 for my ports and neither was my phone. So I knew I had to find my port #, here is how...

1) In the start menu go to Printers and Devices
2) Right click on Samsung CDMA Technologies and go to properties
3) Go to the hardware tab and stretch out the "name" column so you can see the whole thing
4) Look for the one that says "SAMSUNG Mobile Modem Diagnostic Serial Port (WDM)(COM4)"

...well, mine was COM4 yours might not be. Now on the add new port screen enter that port and then continue as normal. It worked fine for me, have the new PRL now.

I now see 3G with the LTE off Downtown and by Detroit Metro Airport.

No problem and thanks

As for ROMs I personally don't use one but if I did it would be the Basix ROM.

OP, if you include the *228 instructions as well as the PST instructions, and keep this updated, it'd be a great sticky.

I always keep this thread updated

And yea I will include the *228 but I haven't done so because I dont think its important as only very few areas get the new PRL's when dialing *228 and 90% of the time it reverts people back to 3019.prl. I wonder when Metro will send out the new prls to every tower so we will no longer have to do it manually.

This thread in this section is only for the Samsung Galaxy Indulge 4G. I suggest you go to the Samsung Admire forum for help with your phone.

Talking 3G in Ft. Myers FL

I live in Lehigh Acres FL, but work in the Ft. Myers FL area. I updated a while back to the 3023 PRL through the instructions in this thread. There is currently no 4G in my area although the people from the MetroPCS store claim that it will be here November 15th. Anyhow, I went to work this morning and noticed my 3G icon was lit up. I immediately ran a speed test and only got a max of 125kbps down and 58kbps up (definately NOT 3G speed). I then tried loading web sites in my browser, and to my amazement, they popped up in no time at all. I had already cleared my browsing cache, so I know that wasnt the reason. After work, I returned home to lehigh acres and my icon reverted back to 1x. I was under the impression that the indulge wouldnt recieve 3G unless I was in a 4G area, and the signal wasnt strong enough; it would drop down to 3G. I guess maybe they are testing 3G in the area and getting ready for 4G to go live in November. Whatever the case, it's nice to see progress finally being made in my area. Way to go Metro!

If you dont have 4G in your area I suggest you turn off the 4G radio as it still stays on and searches for 4G networks. Just use the second guide I have right below the update instructions. It will save you some battery.

Not sure exactly what you mean. If there is 3G in your area then yes it will use it just like 4G.

I think he's asking if it will drop to 3g first instead of 1x if 4g isnt that strong. I think it will drop to whatever signal is stronger, so if your in an area with strong 3g and bad 4g then thats what you will get, but if 4g and 3g are not that strong then 1x is what you will get.

Yes. You are right, it will only use whichever network is stronger if one network is unavailable.

3. On your Indulge, with the touchscreen dialer, dial **87284 this will open the “PhoneUtil” hidden menu

i tried entering **87284 but nothing happens.. are you talking about dialing this # or entering it somewhere else? thanks

I got 4G/3G/1x now on the Esteem.......this phone is so much better than my Indulge.
Also put the PRL on my wife's LG Optimus M....
now she get's 3G "most" of the time here in Miami..and get's phone calls in places 2 weeks ago she would not.
So metro has done a good thing because I was getting tired of not having signal or data with my Indulge and calling the wife when she was places and just getting voice mail.
So put the 3025 on your phones....it works, here in Miami with no problems.

now she get's 3G "most" of the time here in Miami..and get's phone calls in places 2 weeks ago she would not.
So metro has done a good thing because I was getting tired of not having signal or data with my Indulge and calling the wife when she was places and just getting voice mail.
So put the 3025 on your phones....it works, here in Miami with no problems.
This section is for the Samsung Galaxy Indulge, not the LG Esteem. Please find your way to that section and post about your "amazing" phone there. Thanks.

i agree, although this post is in the indulge forum, this is not something specific to only the indulge.

Default ok well I had the Indulge

and switched to the Esteem.
Just sold the indulge on eBay to offset the cost
Any phone can get the 3G if you update the PRL
If no 4G then falls back to to 3G OR 1X, but now you will have more towers, get more signal.
My Esteem falls from 4G (metro - GREEN arrows) to 4G (other providers - WHITE arrows) to 3G GREEN or WHITE but still sometimes (but rare now) drops to 1X.
Someone said go to the "Esteem to post about your amazing phone".....lighten up.
I am posting about 3025.prl BUT it does seem to work better on the Esteem (chip manufactuer, 4G radios, antenna placment,etc.etc)
At least it's not the iPhone 4 with the "grip of death to signal because of bad placement of antennas"..........

Well the LG Esteem forum is best for you, the part that made me a little upset was you putting the Indulge down, and this is the Indulge forum which means you will find nothing but Indulge owners who still use it so calling it a bad phone by bragging how cool the esteem is really wont help phill and if you want to do that Esteem forum is best for it.

Back on topic now.

There's is nothing wrong with your phone, its just the PRL. Use whichever is best for you.. if you use 4G and need it much more than the 3G then use the PRL whichever is best for it.

I for one however don't care for 4G at all and just stick to 3G since my battery lasts me through the day.

Wow. Someone is upset. PRLs arent just for the Indulge. And to be honest this PRL most likely came from the Optimus M forum which is the first place on this whole site it was posted at.




Anyways, I follow al the PRL threads and retrieve the newest ones I can find to "supply" a list of PRLs on the unleashed prepaid site for people flashing phones or trying to get 3G, and over at the Ascend forum, which I own one and have played with the PRls on it alot, someone was asking if anyone had the 3026 download, I guess somewhere or someone he knows has a 26 but anybody seen or heard of the 3026?

Had a bit of a problem with getting my computer to recognize my rooted Indulge once plugged in & realized that is was the USB cable all along.

Still haven't figured out why it will charge from my computer with my old USB cable but computer would not detect my phone. (maybe just a faulty cable)

I am happy to say that I have successfully update my prl to 3025 & will let you know how the 3G works out over here in Ontario California.

All you guys rock & I am checking these posts almost daily. Thanks!

The Instructions and everything that you need is in the 1st post of this thread.

EDIT:
Sorry I was wrong, Im not sure if R915 users can update their PRL this way.

I have that same problem, you can only use it as a usb if its a samsung branded cable, if not it will only charge from it but wont allow you to use it as a usb.
