I reinstalled v7 last night and today when I updated the PRL, it is 30041 and 1XEV is back again. VZW started a trouble support ticket on Saturday due to the issues I've had. Today, they called me and asked how it has been working and they said that the 30041 PRL is what fixed my issues and that the 40050 PRL was created to get the conversion finished.

    Do you know what your PRL was before and what it is now? I am curious to see if there is any connection between the two issues.
    i have nooo idea lol. I dont even know how to check lol.

    go to the phone dial pad and dial #4357* and send, a screen will come up and if you scroll down you will see the PRL listed.

    PRL stands for Preferred Roaming Location. What I understand is the PRL tells the phone "where" to search for a signal from the towers and phones can act differently depending on which signal is received. (Anyone have a better explanation, please jump in!) too much info??? at:

    It updates any new towers or updates the existing towers with any changes. Yes Crickee it also does tell it where to search. But for watkins and vstro if this keeps happening. Go into manage connections and turn off your network, pull the battery for bout 60 seconds, let the phone boot up, go back to manage connections and turn you network back on. You can pull your battery like I do or you don't have to. Wont affect anything I just have that habit Also when you update your PRL make sure to do a battery pull after Hope this helps as sometimes it can be the radio, network, or even the phone (<not likely)
