    Not sure if it matters but i have debugging on

    CDMA workshop(dont ask me. ask google)

    on the phone dial ##8778#

    enter msl code(google how to get msl with connectbot)

    change it to USB

    open cdma workshop and change the port# to the port your phone is on

    click connect then read (after this it should say ready in the bottom of CDMA workshp window)

    Go to the security tab and send the defult samsung password
    should say phone is unlocked

    go to others tab and select write prl
    chose the .prl file you want to use and write it to the phone

    close cdma workshop with the X and it will ask you something about sending a command to the phone just except this and the phone should reboot.

    What is the objective of having the sprint prl on boost? Or any other company's prl for that matter?

    How can I get my original prl file just in case something goes wrong and the phone doesn't like the Sprint prl?

    Scratch that. I just tested to see if the phone would update the prl ota and it did.

    from what i gather from my researching this it allows you to connect to more towers. Sprint gives priority to its post payed customers on the towers and im only assuming that this is controlled in part by the PRL so if you load the sprint prl you would in turn be on a sprint post payed signal. I was able to have the phone see the airave "tower" when i had a sprint PRL on the phone but it would not allow me to make calls with it

    I put 11115 on the other night, and absolutely had no service. Lol. I wished that it would've worked though. Currently I'm on 60681, and it's holding up pretty well.

    you got it?
    for some reason I found you have to change to usb right before you open cdma workshop.

    Yeah that works for me too thanks :)
    Anyway i've been trying out different prl they all have signal but i'm just at the house so i'm not sure which one is better because i havent been out yet, but does better download mean better signal? cuz prl 11115 give me about 500kbps and 60681 gives me over 1000kbps

    the prl gives you tower information, if the 60681 gives you higher download your probably connecting to a closer tower.
    Though depending on when they put out the 60681 newer is usually better.

    When you open cdma workshop and go to the security tab it will have a drop down box you just select default samsung password from the menu

    Does it cost money to use other prls?
    And can you just use one or can you use multiple prls?

    it is always better to connect to a closer tower.

    no it does not cost anything, on boost you get no roaming so you never need worry about connecting and using a tower that is going to cost anything.

    Honestly, changing the PRL to a non Boost one doesn't change the coverage map much if you already have decent service, and it's a hit or miss if you don't. I'm kind of lucky being that I didn't have too good coverage before, but since experimenting with numerous true Sprint PRL's I'm tapping into more towers and my coverage has improved as well as my download speeds.

    I would try to find another link.... I had to try 3 or 4 links before finding a good one, and then I had to download WinRar to open it. Lol
