    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.
