    It seems the best way to find one is just to try some out. I tried a few here in West. Washington and never found anything better than the stock PRL. Since re-flashing my phone last week I haven't bothered changing the PRL to anything other than what Sprint says I should be using.

    At worst, the only issue I can think will crop up is that you can't get a signal. Changing to a different PRL shouldn't affect your hardware at all.

    First of all Hi to everyone.

    I have been trying different prl's (btw the guide is excellent).
    so far non have been better.
    Would it be too much to ask that people put down the geographic area they are in
    when posting what worked best for them. so far I have tried more than 10.
    I am in Norfolk, Va. or area code 757

    Best thing to do:

    Find one of your friends with a phone that uses CDMA like sprint, make sure its a real provider not Straight talk or boost. Then look and see what PRL there phone is using and try to get that one. That is prolly the best your going to do for your area. I have said it many times, There is no Magical PRL that will let you connect to any tower.

    Thanks for the info. Just need to find someone who has sprint. So far everyone on att or verizon.

    BTW .. I have found that so far prl 01115 works best for me. I will update if and when I find one better.

    Might want to see if there is a forum for that phone, I am not gonna tell you how to do it because it may be different on that phone.

    When you connect, and "Read" on CDMA does your phone respond?

    Can you transfer files to and from your computer when you hook up your usb cable?

    If you cant do that, then its either that you need to get updated samsung drivers for your computer or your not using the USB cable that came with your phone. You cant just use any USB cable, they may all look the same but there is a difference in USB cables.

    What I've found through some experimentation is that some cables won't work when plugged into USB hubs or other cables - they have to be connected directly to the USB port on the computer. I haven't found any A male-to-micro male cables that just won't work.

    Ok here is your USB leason:

    There are 3 normal versions of USB cables 1.0, 1.1, and 2.0 (there is 3.0 now also) so that covers the versions

    Now there are:
    USB-A to USB-A
    USB-A to USB-B
    USB-A to USB 5 Pin Mini-B
    USB-A to USB 4 Pin Mini-B
    (there are also some odd sizes for special uses, but these are the normal type)

    You need a USB v2.0 - 5 Pin Mini-B to connect your precedent to your computer for data transfer. A 4 Pin Mini-B or 5 Pin v1.x will most likely allow it to charge, but will not transfer data.

    So basically just use the wire that came with your phone or buy a Samsung USB cable. Just because a USB cable worked on some old phone of yours does not mean it will work on this phone. It will most likely be a USB v1.0 or v1.1 and will not allow you to transfer data.

    Hope this helps,

    ive been trying to find prl 60686, with no luck. can you help out?

    I have a few questions:

    1) I have a straight talk precedent. It is on a sprint network. Being that it is straight talk if I find another ST prl file that works with verizon will that allow me to use verizon towers?

    2) is there a way to edit my current PRL file easily?

    3) IF #1 above works does anybody have a 59271 PRL file?

    Yes. You just have to learn how it's constructed. Then edit it in any hex editor.

    Since it won't, it doesn't matter.
