    This is a very goooooood idea to change to Sprint prl, because WARP support 800MHz, then Warp will be as a post-paid phone on sprint network.

    1, who has the sprint prl?
    2, anyone can replace it in Warp?

    Maybe this way can reduce some coverage issues of Boost, I think.:)

    Tomorrow I will try using cdma workshop. I have to flash stock recovery and see if I can connect CDMA workshop while in FTM mode. I dont know what codes work either.

    I think this is a very good idea, perhaps it can fix some signal issues. if it does work I would love to do it as well

    I have only read about it, from my understanding it's basically a file your phone references about towers around you and how to connect to them.

    I think maybe boost is given second rate coverage to make way for sprint etc so I was interested in changing to a sprint prl and hopefully up my coverage a bit.

    Thanks Woodstock for checking it out, if you figure out how any help pointing us in the right direction would be appreciated!

    For some reason Im having trouble with drivers today. I'll look into later. I agree it should work and I would be able to tell really quick when I go to work because I lose my signal there half the time.

    no huge difference here at work or at home, but it's easy to do and easy to go back so worth a try... I haven't noticed a negative difference though
