    very helpful thread so far

    can someone explain to me how to update this from my tour??


    TIA


    EDIT: nevermind I think I figured it out. I went into Option>Mobile Network>hit blackberry button and select update Preferred List

    One thing though - I had checked my status the way mentioned on pg1 and it said I was on 60652, Now I am on 60654. Still not on 60655??


    Any insight??
    running5.0.0.238 does not have that option to update preferred list.

    It can take a couple days for the newest prl to provision to your phone. I don't know why but the last couple have been that way.

    Hey guys. Im running the .230 and my reception has been horrible. Checked my PRL and it was 0. Called *2 and told them I'd like to update the PRL and they did so with no problem. Had to call the *2 back, verify my # and then was told the update was in progress. The phone hangs up and I check my PRL and its 60655. Im hitting 3 bars now instead of the barely 1-2 I was getting but I may be over checking my phone

    Question I have though is this.....I heard that we shouldnt backup and restore the service books when updating the PRL since I have .230.....but since I already have a fuctioniong and ideal PRL , can I backup like normal?

    If you already have .230 and you can update your PRL then you have nothing to worry about.

    Well I updated the PRL, but I when i soft reset, it went back to 0 again. Im calling Sprint now to have them reset it again and then Im gonna back up device and see if that fixes the issue after a soft reset.

    *EDIT* Ok thats not going to work. Is there a way Im going to be able to keep this PRL after a soft reset on the .230? Using the Update Prl function in the Mobile Options only soft resets my device

    If the "Update Preferred List" option resets your device then you need to reinstall the OS without restoring your Service Books.

    I was able to get the 60655 PRL. I called and just requested an update from Sprint to make sure I was using the latest one, probably about a week ago. I don't know if it maked a diff but my phone says it's the 8330m.

    Glad I took a peek at this thread, my PRL: 60652

    Placed a call to *2 and they said they will update it.....the CSR asked if this was my first call regarding this update, which it was...anyone else get that question?? Was wondering if it was because mine seems to be so far behind everyone else's at "60652"??

    Thanks for the directions. I am on 5.0 and just upgraded to the lestest hybrid and my prl is 60655 so I guess mine is staying fairly current or just one version off. Does resending service books update the prl?

    That's not the only way. My wife and I both own Sprint 8330m's, and ours have been updating automatically.
