    I was told by tech support manually adjusting prl is unnecessary for 4g devices furthermore it could damage 4g phones sim cards. Did I get a quack or is there trust to what the rep told me?

    The only way you'll fry your SIM is if you *228 a non activated 4G smartphone. It then takes your SIM off the network forcing you to get a new one. Manually updating your PRLs should have no negative effect.

    So the tech is also wrong on his assertion that adjusting the prl has no tangible effect

    I can't guarantee you anything, but I've told many my success with performing this and all have reported back the same thing. No negative effects.

    What's the deal with having to add *22899 as a contact? You can't just dial it?

    I'm not sure why, but you do have to add it as a contact. It won't work if you don't.
