    What's the fastest prl for central California?
    I was using 60683, but I updated my prl using the phones prl updater and it seems to be faster. I am now on boosts 61009. But I want to use a sprint prl instead of boosts cause I herd it's faster, but don't really have the time to check all the PRL's, so I was wondering if anyone that lives in or near central Cali has already tested them all? I've checked the other threads about PRL's but it seems like everyone is living in NY. LOL. I have all the PRL's if anyone needs them I can post a link to my drop box.
    I would appreciate any feedback! Thanks.

    61008 in NW Arkansas. 1-1.5 it seems more reliable for me than 61009. I need to sit down and find a sprint prl for a change.

    Here are all the sprint prls to load into cdmatool for anyone who wants to try some:

    I am going to give a few a whirl this weekend.

    I ran 11115 and 60683 across the country with little problem. With the exceptions of places like liberal Kansas where you lose service 2 hour befor you get there.

    The problem I have is that its all not very conclusive. I don't notice any increase in speeds. I just try to find a corperate prl with the hope I might have more access to more towers. And that ( from my understanding) is all a prl does. Dictate what towers you are allowed to use and at what times.

    You could use 61007 and get better speeds than someone on say 60683. But... maybe three four miles out of town 61007 might have less of a signal. It all seems pretty circumstancal, all you can do is search for info, download, and test.

    Bust of luck

    So using a corperate PRL would be better (faster, more reliable) than a boost or regular sprint PRL? I have every PRL up to date, just really don't have the time to test all of them LOL! I have like 50 of them! But anyway, do you have the number of the corperate PRL your using so I can give it a try? Thank you. :)

    11115, 01115, I understand are corperate. And then I recently found a 12121 which I am only "assuming" is a newer one. But 11115 work great all over the country

    Also I can't confirm or deny that they are corperate, I'm only going of what I was told. And then also assuming because of the format of the prl # itself.

    But 1+1 usually = 512,123
