    *228 Option #2 The download process will start on its own then the handset will reset good luck.

    This is a number you can use for any Verizon phone to help with connection issues. It reprograms the phone for your location. I'm not sure on the specifics but its recommended to be done every 30 days or when you travel to a different state.

    Verizon lady said they have a specific PRL for the Incredible to enhance signal strength. Worth a try no?

    Awesome!!

    Good find.

    I'm pretty sure the OP is correct. I've never done a *228 update and had a download/restart before.

    Let's test. Somebody do it and post your PRL. Compare to mine: 51866

    Go

    Edit: Or post your PRL before and after *228

    When you activated your phone using option 1 the PRL download is part of it.

    The only problem is that its not going to help. If you goto settings, about, network, and look at signal strength there you will get a more accurate view of your signal. The range I believe is between -75 and -110, -75 being the best. A rep from HTC said that the signal strength bars don't mean much and you shouldn't pay attention to them while you are not actively using the phone ( on a current phone calll).

    I knew it wouldn't do anything, but I did it out of boredom. 51866 before and 51866 after.

    for the record, it always does a reboot on the Incredible when you update. It didn't on my BB Tour, however.

    So if you are on 51827, it is time to do an update.

    Same.. I guess it can't hurt even if there isn't a difference.

    In your post it says to download the file to the root of your sd card. Sorry but is that doing something different then just putting it on your sd card?
