    Update PRL missing here. IS this a Sprint Hero only thing?

    I see all these options (plus "CDMA only") with my 2.1-based ROM. I'm not touching anything until I've found out whether Orange make use of the PRL feature though!

    I don't have the option to update my PRL list either (on 2.1), but I've never had any problems switching to GSM auto (PRL) on T-Mobile.

    I'm also missing the update PRL option on the Villain 10 ROM but your service provider should push a new list to your phone periodically. Best thing is to just try the GSM auto (PRL) option and if you have problems with mobile internet you'll have to go back to WCDMA prefered and suffer the extra battery usage.

    Thanks for the guide.

    I found this thread and wanted to ask you guys if this applies for our Heros too?!

    I've no idea. But why not give it a try? :)

    It certainly would be cool if it worked.
