    Newest PRL for Verizon

    Ok I am going to try very hard to keep this as up to date as possible. If you catch a newer PRL then post it up and I will update the OP.
    To check your current PRL dial #4357* and hit send

    AS OF 5-3-10

    Normal PRL- 51866

    Some of these updates are appearing to be regional

    AS OF 5-3-10
    Hybrid PRL- 65133


    To get the latest normal PRL dial *22899 from your verizon phone. To get the Hybrid you can try dialing the same most of the time you wont get it that way. Call vzw and ask for the update to the Hybrid PRL.

    Just a little info for every one.
    PRL= Preferred Roaming List.
    Now if you are on VZW in mostly a VZW service area(ie-1XEV or 3G whatever your phone says) This wont make much difference to you, if you travel out of vzw area on 1X this is a list of towers that your phone will see as service providers when not on VZW's Network... Now this is all negated if you have a hybrid PRL (typically they begin with 65xxx) If you are on a hybrid you are typically an alltel convert customer. The reason you get this is because you are in an area that the alltel towers have not been turned to VZW yet, so you will see alltel and vzw towers as 1XEV or 3G. to get a hybrid you must call and have it pushed. A new hybrid PRL will greatly help you (most times) because each time it changes they are adding more towers that you will see as 1XEV or 3G. Hope this helps

    I dialed *22899 but I keep getting the hybrid. I have been noticing with it I keep changing from EXDO to 1X as it must ne picking up Alltel towers during the merger. I have also tried *228, option 2 but always show that I have the 65061 PRL.

    The PRL Version that I keep getting is 51611. I am in north central Florida. This PRL was released earlier in the week for me.

    51611 is a few weeks old... it may take a day to spread to the network.. sometimes you have to do *228 option 1 for it to update
