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.
Duopolies do have competition and does transfer welfare to the consumer. Look, the number efficient of players in a market is determined largely by returns to scale. The one thing the government can do to help a market have more competition and reach an efficient state is lower the fixed cost associated with regulations.
Yup. This is the major problem. The process needs to be improved for fiber companies too. The reason why google had cities bid to bring google fiber to their town was because the regulatory cost would have been too high to make it worth it to them. Local government shouldn't be allowed to impose such burdens on infrastructure companies.
I supported the FCC’s action yesterday.
I don’t like monopolies, but I dislike duopolies more because it’s the illusion of competition.
I support policies that ensure and encourage vibrant competition between multiple market participants.
When physical threats and intimidation are involved, that undermines any legitimacy to one’s position in my opinion.
