    The title says it all. I am currently using 01115. Is this the best or is there a better one? I saw a whole list and was told this was good. Is there one that will give me better results or should i stick with this one?

    None, PRLs are a Roaming list. I know some people have said that one vs. another has done wonders, but I think it's random network breathing.

    Changing your PRL on virgin mobile does nothing. It basically changes the list used for roaming, which virgin mobile does not have. Sorry to tell you, but any "improvements" you do see are probably the results of a placebo effect.

    You can prove this for yourself... Download the free app, OpenSignal.
    This will show you exactly which tower you are connected to at any given time.
    If you don't connect to different, previously unavailable towers with a given prl installed, then you have seen no benefit.

    Network speed and signal strength can constantly vary for any of a number of reasons, none of which will be related to your prl.
