    Thanks for the head's up, CK. Do you normally to do a battery pull after updating your PRL, or is that not necessary?

    What is a PRL?
    Preferred Roaming List

    To do this, at least with VZW, dial *228 and then hit 2.

    Correct me if I am wrong, but doesnt a PRL update allow the phone to utilize non carrier towers? As a verizon customer, you wouldnt need a prl update to benefit from verizon enhancements, me, as a sprint customer, should do it for my roaming purposes.

    No?

    On the Sprint TourN you can go into 'manage connections' then 'mobile network options' hit the menu key and scroll down to 'update preferred list'

    I am assuming the vzw tour has this menu as well?

    Yes, but thats not the only thing it does.

    If your a former Alltel customer it may make a difference. VZW is doing away with some sids while integrating the Alltel network. If you happen to have a really old Alltel PRL that didn't allow roaming on the particular sid you happen to be on you'll have no service while all the other VZW customers do.
