    I've done this with moto phones. Might have to dig into this in the am. I assume your trying to rollback your PRL? Where are you getting your base PRL from... HoFo?

    I have read that bitpim works on the BlackBerry, but I can neither confirm or deny. I will have to do some digging to find an alternative for you.

    I found a couple things.
    1. What build Qpst are you using? read people have trouble with 215 and 263, build 301 seems to be the build to use. I had trouble connecting with 215 (never had 263), 301 connected right away. If you need help locating this PM me as it is "Wares"

    2. Also found another product to do this called Infosoft Universal PST Found in this thread by Gueido on HoFo HERE

    Note: read in that post that Qpst also altered the SPC, but it was an old thread, so not sure if build 301 rectified this.

    Hope this helps. Please post back with your findings, as I am curious as to what works for you.

    still not working

    Well today i bought cdma workshop because i read that it would successfully write a prl to the storm. No such luck. the program itself claims that it has written it successfully when i load it, it turns the radio off before hand automatically, first off before writing, when i go into options to turn it back on it will not until i reboot the phone, then do a #4357* and it shows a prl of 1, I cant believe this can be so complicated. Its like i need to turn off a lock of some sort.

    No qpst will not write the prl either. After it gets done the phone reboots also and shows a prl of 1. *228 gives me 30035 i need the 40045 to roam and have data capabilities.

    I did a little googling. Will this help you out? If I'm understanding you, you are trying to get an alltel PRL working on your VZW phone.

    Not sure.. When I do it, mine shows 51284 (VZW). Is there a chance when you converted it over, something didn't take, causing your manual PRL update not to stick. I'm not sure. When it comes to QPST and RadioComm, I know just enough to be dangerous. Used to do it all the time with putting Alltel software in Verizon phones,but never with Blackberry's.

    While the Storm is a global phone VZW is still in its infancy in terms of global roaming. I have traveled to many countries with my Storm and always seem to have problems with it no matter what PRL I have. My solution was to call VZW and unlock the SIM card so that I get a local one. That is why when I travel overseas I always use T-Mobile. Hands down they are the best for global roaming.

    Ok a little update on this. Used cdma workshop the latest version and the program says the prl is updated with the new one that i load, but the phone still shows a prl of 1 only. I think maybe the prl is loading and on the phone even though it says different. Havent traveled on other towers yet but will soon and will post my results.
