    Put *22899 as a contact and dial it. It will update your PRL to a better version. You're on the old one

    I didn't know about this feature... I just did it, heard the music while "your phone is being programmed" was told to me by the Verizon She-Bot, and then it finished and said "It may take up to 15 minutes for your activation to complete". I am assuming I did this properly?

    Yep. Check your new PRL. It should be something like 52642 if I remember right. Give it a couple of days. Your signal should be much improved. If you've flashed the leaked radios you'll get better 3G/4G/Wi-Fi hand off. Some have even reported better signal after that as well.

    It has to be in your contacts. You can't just dial it.

    Not entirely sure how to check PRL, so I will look under "About Phone", but results are so far: inside a 3-story building, on the second floor, in a fairly populated area during rush hour today, I looked at my phone and saw that I had about 2/3 full 4G bar. Looked at signal in About Phone, and it was -74dBm!!! Even better, when my bars were full, it was down to -62dBm!!!!

    I am stock, not rooted (although may root soon), and nothing has been updated/changed except for having dialed that number today... Very nice!

    PRL is in Settings -> About Phone -> Status

    It's about half way down the Status page. Good luck!

    I am not even sure what PRL is, but I did have a PRL of 15098. After dialing the number, I now have a PRL 52642.

    My reception has always been pretty good, so I dont know if it will amount to anything, but it is now a higher number, LOL.

    Took me a solid 48 hours before I started seeing significant differences. I was seeing a much lower DBM within my house and even have been picking up signal strength in the basement. Pretty impressive imo. I didn't have terrible signal issues like some people have had (it was just slacking in my house a little), but now my issues *seem* to be over. It may or may not fix it for you. Here's hoping though. :biggrin:
