I am with sprint and they are on 60651 in our area and I have 65000 so mine wont catch any further updates for a while ?

    I think so too. When you update the phone without wiping with BBSAK, the loader actually wipes just the same way. If you watch the update process closely, you will notice a brief flash of "Reload Software" on the screen. I believe it would act exactly same way with wiping and without.

    The only way to update your PRL is by doing the *228 options.

    I worked for VZW customer service so unless sprint is a lot different with their PRL then your fine...because big red trains us that way lol.

    I totally agree with you Jordan...but I believe he is on Sprint and that complicates things a little bit.

    May I ask why you want the PRL to go un-updated?

    for some weird reason while on the current prl where I am located in S.W. Okla it does not let the smart phone use the partner towers very well , and I work as a paramedic and we need to have communication with helicopters and hospitals and other ambulance services and the only way to do that sometimes is with our phones so got lucky and had a prl service tech with sprint come down from Kansas and verify the problem and they made my whole service a special prl .... hope that is not to hard to understand .. been a big pain in the As* .. lol .. can go back to okla,city and have them done if we lose them or have to change phones due to breakage.. it is 2 hours away so try not to mess with it to much as far as prl goes ... but I am the only one in our service that always have to push it .. lol really like 5.0.0.230 but battery has went to crap and want to see if the new 230/191 will change it back to how it was .. thanks all for the help and this site is awesome ..

    I would call sprint. Seems like it is more of a geo-code issue rather the PRL. The only problem being I think the only way to change your geo-code would be to also change your number.
