    Up to 52105 on my Bold and Pre Plus.

    To update your PRL, dial *228 and choose option 2.

    To check your PRL, dial #4357* and scroll to PRL Version.

    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.

    It doesn't matter if you don't roam. Towers and sites are added all the time. Updating your PRL will ensure you are using all the towers available, therefore, giving you a better signal.

    I'd never checked my roaming list before...didn't know I could!!!

    I checked it and it was at 51000 something, so I updated and re-checked, and it went to 52105.

    I'm on Verizon and travel a bit, so updated roaming lists, for me, is a good idea that I don't follow near as often as I should.

    Interesting...my Bold (9650) has 52105, I just did the *228 for my Tour (9630), and it is still at 52078. I'm figuring the difference is because the Tour is an older model, so maybe you want to try the *228 on your Bold to see if you can get 52105.

    The PRL doesn't have anything to do with new cell sites. It contains a prioritized list of System IDs (SID) and the channel (frequency) the phone should use to acquire them. When new cell sites are added to a given system, the phone will just use them. It's when there are new or deleted systems or acquisition channel changes that a new PRL comes into play. Stuff that does change with new cell sites, such as how to handoff a call to a "neighbor" cell site, is sent on the fly to the phone by the cell as part of the call protocol.

    Most of the recent PRL changes are related to integrating the Alltel network.

    Anyone know how to check PRL on a Storm? I've tried typing into the virtual keyboard, but doesn't do anything.
