Current Sprint PRLs

Recommended Posts

After reading some threads here in regards to PRL versions and the differences between each version on different devices, I took the time to find the listing of all current Sprint PRLs.
 
This includes the official changes made with each new PRL revision as well.
 

 

https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1eNgQKxdPHgua60suUeQ4E7KvtUAFPDVkpqTL2sBorNg/pubhtml
 
While the information this comes from is on an internal Sprint page, the information itself is not proprietary as it can all be obtained through an analysis of the PRLs loaded on every Sprint device in the wild, something members of this community have already been doing.
 
My hope is that by making this information easier to find, it will lead to more discussion and overall a better community.

Preferred Roaming List Release: Samsung Note II

On 6/13/13, Sprint released a new Preferred Roaming List (PRL) series 2xxx, for Samsung Note II (SPH-L900) devices only.

  • The PRLs are designed to remove access to Sprint's 800 MHz network based on reported issues of the inability to make/receive voice calls and text messages while using this network.
  • The new PRL's have been sent out to all the Samsung Note II devices.
  • This is a temporary solution until a root cause and fix is found for this device.
  • The PRL will continue to allow access to Sprint's 1900 CDMA and roaming partner networks.
  • Customers experiencing problems should be directed to update the PRL via device settings.

Thanks for doing this as this has been one of the things on my list. The one stop shop for PRL info instead of new threads anytime there is an update. This will be a sticky.

 

I had a feeling it was something you had planned, but I had access to all of them at once, officially. Much faster than figuring it out on your own with every phone, and much easier than trying to figure out each corporate PRL.

So, still no word on why the note 2's on PRL 2000? I've noticed some 4g auth issues with 65009, but it work fine on 2000, so I wonder if 800 ESMR and 4G 1900 aren't playing nice.

 

Also, heh. 16015 is MBB, yet our Store's GS3 is on it.

Weird.. Since I had no issues using it in Dallas. I bet we will see a baseband update soon though.

 

Not sure why you would see LTE Auth issues as all the prl has in it is basically an on/off switch for that Geo to scan for LTE or not.

I'm wondering if I was experiencing whatever issue that ran into. I made this post around June 6th. I have screenshots further down the thread.

I'm speculating, but I've noticed that the moment I switch from 2000 back to 65009, my 4G LTE refuses to connect.

Thanks, cool spreadsheet!

 

I see the 51xxx series PRLs are intended for any device not utilizing simultaneous LTE and voice. Is the iPhone the only hardware on the network that falls in to this category?

The Note II has its own set of PRLs. The Corporate one with 3G roaming is 2001The HTC One is a svLTE AWM device, so it would be 540xx for the corporate 3G PRL.

 

The latest PRL series xxx15 and xxx97 have nationwide 800smr for all SIDs that will be used.

Are you using stock TW or CM10.1?  There is a bug on CM10.1 with the RIL changes in the last month where you can install CM and LTE/eHRPD works until the first reboot, then it appears the network registration dies and you are stuck on shady EVDO/1X.

Well, I guess since this has been straight up copied and pasted from the Sprint Daily News...

That's got to be what it is. I've been on TW for a bit, but was switching back and forth for a while. I'll have to do some more testing to figure out exactly what's going on. Sadly, neither my home nor work are currently in 4G LTE areas, it's only when out and about that I'm constantly distracted by my phone and trying to make it work...

What does the June 4th and April 12th dates mean on the spreadsheet?  How do I use the spreadsheet to know what I should be using?  I have an iPhone 5 and my PRL is 51097.

The dates represent the date each PRL was released.

 

Performing a PRL update will automatically send the most current PRL for your phone and account type. On the iPhone you perform updates by dialing ##UPDATE# and hitting the call button.

 

The info in this thread is exactly that, information.Sprint must pay for all roaming usage so it segregates corporate accounts with better roaming experience in some areas due to roaming agreements with whatever carrier is there. Consumer accounts may be limited to 1x roaming where corporate accounts may have EVDO roaming.

So when a new PRL comes out there will be a column added with that date?

Most likely I'll just remove the oldest leaving the current and one version back.

      iPhone 5 running iOS 7.1.2. Carrier "Sprint 16" and PRL 51101.
       
      In the past I have been able to use the method of replacing carrier.prl in the sprint_lte_us carrier bundle folder, use the PRL push flag in carrier.plist, and with a few reboots I could get full time verizon 3g roaming with "prl 00001." 
       
      I am now visiting Alaska and am stuck on PRL 51101 with "extended" coverage and  1x data. I have tried every PRL I can find (11114, 11119, 53135, 00001) and I seem not to make any difference. After making the prl changes and after the last reboot I am stuck at no service. When checking phone info it will still say 51101.
       
      I have to restore a backup of the sprint_lte_us carrier bundle folder and then things will work again after a reboot.
       
      Any ideas? WIll the PRL update only work if there is native Sprint service around to start with? 
       
      When things are working with 51101 @ 1x speeds on "extended" I can do the ##update# and it say success.
       
      Any help appreciated, would just like 3g data while traveling.

      Today PRL 51095 was pushed to iPhone 5 on Sprint. Anyone with a LTE world phone also get the same PRL file?
       
      Not sure what is different yet. If I knew how to extract the PRL from my phone I would gladly send the file to digiblur for analysis.
    • By serqion
      Does anyone in the area where Sprint released their LTE coverage has the PRL from the iPhone 4s? If so, how has the speed increased? If it's a lot better, please upload the PRL so I can try it out.
       
      Thanks

      Recieved new PRL 25005 today, Had to do a manual update to get it..
      What tool does one use to see the differences?
    • By kckid
      I received a service update on my EVO 4G LTE phone on June 1st at about noon CDT. It said PRL updated. PRL version is 25004. Did anyone else receive this update?

    • Existing sites have all been upgraded, but the network around here was not designed to blanket LTE.  I recognize that the coverage maps often indicate that coverage is acceptable, but that just isn't the case.   Attaching a pic below that has a blue square.  Illinois Route 47.  Its not an interstate, but still a busy state highway.  This is an area where placement of one additional tower would ensure contiguous LTE coverage from Dwight down through Forrest.  It is equally as bad as you travel farther south on Route 47 south of Forrest.  Phones hang onto LTE for dear life, but drop down to 1x and 3g as the town of Strawn is approached.  From Strawn south nearly all the way to Gibson City is 3G or 1x. Site spacing is great for 1x voice coverage, but its just not there for full-time LTE coverage (no matter which band is being discussed.) Every time I'm in one of these areas, I'm reporting the issues in the Sprint Zone.  At one point in time Sprint was working with Illinois Valley Cellular through the Rural Roaming Partner deal - but I have yet to see any indication of connecting to IVC Equipment.  The partnership started in 2014, and it is now nearing the end of 2017, and I am fairly confident that IVC has not held up their end of the deal in moving their network to LTE.  All of that being said, it is not a big deal at this moment.  It will be a big deal at the point in time that a decision is made to shutter CDMA, if the holes are not fixed.     edit:  relevant to this thread - even a Sprint/Tmo merger would not fix this problem without filling in gaps.  
    • I don't think so... the radio in the S8 just performs way better in low signal based on my tests. My coworker did similar tests on a TMO V30 and has similar results as well. It might be a software issue with the phone...

    • It is on the expansion map that was released recently... when I'm not sure. As far as I know it's still 3G up there... outside Marquette they added some unlimited US Cellular roaming based on the latest map update.

    • Completely wrong thread or market but it looks like sprint plans to bring LTE to the upper peninsula aka Marquette MI. Can anyone confirms this ? I see some marginal activity in the Sensorly app

    • Anything new to report about band 26 for SoCal or is this all a pipe dream hoping it gets cleared for rollout before 2027 ?
