    Settings about phone, status, PRL version.

    What does updating this do? I'm not sure that the Preferred rpaming list version is/does. More roaming, less roaming?

    Just got the update this morning, didn't do *228. My PRL # is 51638

    It is recommended to do this every month to stay up to date.

    Doesn't mean they will necessarily change every month but they do change them.

    i never understood why they just don't force it to your phone. i'd be wiling to bet maybe 10% of subscribers actually do this.

    I agree...

    They have pushed out hybrids to the Alltell (now VZW) customers I heard.

    So they can do it.

    Because, I think you are supposed to updated that based on your location. So you're supposed to updated it every time you travel to new location.

    Did this right after the update and there was no change in PRL. Just tried again and it updated to 51716. Guess you have to stay on top of it until they decide to push it. More bars is more better!

    Create a new contact named "Update PRL" and for the phone number use *22891
    Once a month dial the contact and get updated.
    Is that easy or what? :)
