Preferred Roaming List - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Preferred Roaming List...it is a list of SIDS (System IDs) that the carrier has roaming agreements with. When your carrier updates their roaming agreements they in turn need to update your PRL. PRL is a CDMA term so you probably have Verizon or Sprint service. I know Verizon does PRL updates over the air but I'm not sure about Sprint. You probably won't notice reception differences with an updated PRL, only coverage improvements. Sometimes carriers expand service areas and that too can be impacted by an updated PRL.
bump for morning people.
Hmmm I wonder if thats why my phone rebooted last night on its own. Is it an automatic download?
No it's not. You have to do it manually. I made a habit of doing it once a week when I had the Pre and still do it with the EVO.
Well that's interesting.
Thx for the heads up
How do you do it?
go to menu>settings>system updates>update PRL
Menu - Settings - System Updates - Update PRL
does the PRL update new 4G tower locations like it does with the normal tower location updates?
mine did the same thing. weird.
I want to know how the OP finds out what the PRL is fixing, or where he finds this information.
as far as what its "fixing"...i heard it from a few others on another forum. Kust relaying the information. Not 100% sure where they got it from though.
