Service Update

Recommended Posts

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?

I manually updated my PRL yesterday on a whim and it matches the version you posted.

I'm afraid to update my PRL after what happened to my Viper at activation.

My EVO LTE is still on 25003. It wont even update to 25004 when I ask for a PRL update.

I'm still on 60687 after a service update on my iP4. Maybe it's an LTE thing.

 

Nope. Nothing in the 25xxx PRLs about the G block at all from what I saw.

 

Sprint is using a new MCC/MNC record though instead of SIDs, to cover larger areas instead of having to put tons of SIDs. Consider it a SID consolidation without all the mess. Doesn't surprise me as they would have two sets of native SIDs to manage in PRLs. I have to update my PRL comparison program to accommodate and compare these new records. Right now it just ignores them like a handset without MCC MNC capabilities does.

In some of the deeper EVO LTE menus accessible only via MSL, I noted 310-120. Is that the MCC-MNC that Sprint is using?

I know it was 310 but don't remember the other part. Will have to check.

 

On another note, I am so happy that roam control works great on the EVO LTE. Time to do some prl playing.

Reportedly, the PRL is now stored on the SIM and is impervious to tinkering. If that is not the case, do enlighten us.

What does it do when you hit roam only?

Correct. I was talking about the prl for CDMA.

Yes, that would be the only PRL, since LTE (and GSM and W-CDMA) do not use PRL based roaming controls. But my admittedly anecdotal understanding is that the CDMA/EV-DO PRL is now sequestered away on the SIM.

Are you rooted?

 

Love the mod that gets rid of the stupid on screen menu button and makes the recent button your menu button.

I looked at PRL 25003 and I can't find a one bit of the G block listed in there. Apparently the PRLs in these phones are for the CDMA side only. I haven't had a chance to snag 25004 yet, but I suspect it is the same.

I can tell you it works fine on rooted. Didn't try non rooted as my phone was rooted about 5 minutes after I left the store.

Now whenever I try a service update it just fails. This is after resetting the network settings and losing all of my saved wifi networks. >:[]

Correct, you will not find any PRL entries pointing to the PCS G block, since the PCS G will be solely LTE 1900. The same is true with WiMAX -- nothing in the PRL. Only AMPS, TDMA, and CDMA modes use PRLs. GSM and W-CDMA devices do not contain PRLs nor anything quite like lists of SIDs, NIDs, and channels. Rather, they use LACs (Location Area Codes), which are stored on the network side, not on the device side. Now, unlike the GSM zealots, I do not consider LTE to be GSM; LTE is a new paradigm for both GSM and CDMA operators alike. Regardless, LTE will not use PRLs. It may, like GSM, use network side LACs. Or LTE may use something else altogether -- maybe even IP or MAC address based roaming control.

Well, so far, I have had no luck with custom PRL swaps on the EVO LTE. PRL swapping on the handset requires the EPST.apk. But only certain versions of the EPST.apk allow access to the PRL dialer code (##PRL#). For example, I had to replace the stock EPST.apk on my EVO 4G with an older version before I could swap PRLs.

 

I can report that the stock EPST.apk on the EVO LTE does not grant access via the PRL dialer code. My EVO LTE is rooted, so I used Root Explorer to replace the stock EPST.apk with the much older version that enabled PRL swaps on the EVO 4G. Unfortunately, it does not work with Android 4.0 or Sense 4.0 or both. In fact, the old EPST.apk not only does not grant access via the PRL dialer code but also removes access via the programming dialer codes (##DATA# and ##xxxxxx#, in which "xxxxxx" is your six digit MSL). So, the very old EPST.apk that allowed PRL swaps on the EVO 4G appears to be a dead end with the EVO LTE.

 

Back to the drawing board...

CDMA workshop allows you to read them. I am sure I could have written one.

 

By the way...they are using 310-FFF. And the new 25004 removes the 800SMR scan from the chicago area.

Why would they block access to the 800SMR? Unless it's because they are just testing those towers for quality and range.

      Given the fact that Virgin has access to Extended Coverage ever since it's Inner Circle plan still now with it's current one at least according to customer service. Shouldn't Virgin be using PRL 55070 like it was with Inner Circle or is 7080 correct? I feel like there's an issue that isn't being paid attention too. Does PRL 7080 have the necessary stuff to make the device roam on Sprints extended partners.

      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.

      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.

      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

    • Thank you. That’s good to know that it sounds like the modem is better than the XS Max.
    • So after waiting 2 hrs in line at the apple store I finally have a 11 pro. I can tell you the reception is alittle better then last years iPhones. It is a lot better then the unlocked s10 plus I was using which anything above -112 was useless. 
    • Yes we do. 60 MHz NR + 60 MHz LTE out of M-MIMO equipment. DSS will be deployed soon and 40-60 MHz will remain used for LTE on small cells/MBs.  As far as LTE goes, Sprint runs between 60 MHz and 100 MHz on macro sites with 20-60 MHz used for small cells/MBs. The actual numbers vary from market to market. In Seattle, Sprint runs 100 MHz of L2500 on macros, 40 MHz on small cells, and MBs have their own dedicated channel.  Only in areas lacking contiguous spectrum. 60 MHz will be the norm.  Let's not start this discussion again, please. 
    • I'm just saying it will not happen as whomever buys Sprint will want B41. Not every area has 160 mhz. Sent from my SM-G965U1 using Tapatalk
    • We don't know what Sprint is going to do with 5G.  I don't even think for 4G they used all of its 160 GHz of 2.5 GHz spectrum.  Even in early 5G deployments Sprint is only deploying 40 MHz of 2.5 GHz spectrum.  Also we dont know how long Sprint will continue to operate as a company with all of its debt and declining customer base.
