i have an EVO LTE and want to put on the prl for 800mhz has anyone tried it out and if so can you help me out. also i'm not rooted.

 

Unless you are in Chicagoland where a few 800Mhz 1x advanced towers are live, it is not worth anything to you

They are talking about CDMA 800. They just weren't clear. PRL's will not affect LTE service at all.

I have given up on the PRL because my phone has had alot of problems. i had to do a reset on my phone to get my text messages to work so i don't want to screw up the phone lol. But we can keep this thread for the latest prl updates.

I'm also on 25004. I'm in Conover, NC and Network Vision is not scheduled for here until October last I heard from Robert.

PRLs are irrelevant.

The only reason you should need to change PRLs is if you want to roam on Verizon 3G, which requires placing a Verizon PRL on your device.

Other than that, don't worry about PRL.

 

Except for when they add the new 800SMR SIDs. This will be one of the very few and rare times where a PRL upgrade actually changes Sprint native signal/coverage. They added Chicago a while back, but removed it due to issues in that area. I'm sure it will be back including some others pretty soon.

Why when I do a prl update, it says it was updated, but the version doesn't change? Does it really update it?

 

Yes and no. Yes, it updated and overwrote the old one, with the same one. No, in the fact that there is no net change.

    • Luckily, that hasn't arisen in my area where I am, aside from having B14 (well, ALL of AT&T signal) not work at all in Coosa county, Alabama. I wish there was a service for first responders that would go to ANY available carrier, provider, etc..and in the absolute worst case scenario, would give us service. I've been on an ambulance, trying to find an address, and my driver actually had to pull over and we pulled out a map book and tried to find the road using the "old fashioned way".. and that takes valuable time away that sometimes may be vital to someone surviving. BUT, I will say that I've only seen that in Coosa county... both my Tmo and AT&T phones had zero service and I couldn't get GPS, and neither could my driver (VZW service). Maybe satellite will help with that in those times where that occurs.. but that's an extreme example.     Edit to add: Let me add some context to this.. Coosa county isn't regular coverage area for my job.. so it's not a regular thing that we are dispatched to Coosa county.. and actually, there's been a change and that county now has it's own ambulance service that operates.. so the only time we might receive a request is if it's a multiple casualty scenario, or it's a transfer going home from our contracted hospital.  The way that reads above, it may seem like we are just out without some sort of GPS gadget to direct us on where to go, but for the most part, we know our coverage area pretty well. Dispatch can also give us cross streets for reference inside our coverage area (and our home county). Coosa just isn't a regular area for my job to run in. 
    • "Priority" doesn't mean "exclusivity."  When emergency services don't need B14, AT&T can use it for everyone else.  The trade-off is that when it is needed for emergency services, they not only get all of B14, but they have also arranged for priority on the rest of the AT&T network as well.  Beats having spectrum sitting unused most of the time and then not having enough when disaster strikes, as it could be without a partnership with a wireless company like AT&T. - Trip
    • I've wondered if being on the first responder plan has the priority over other 'regular' lines in the same way firstnet does (or, supposed to do with B14...I've seen normal customers on AT&T hit B14 so it's not {specifically} for Firstnet only)...  
    • T-Mobile prices people pay are all over the map. The free lines are key, so take them if ever offered again.  Your priority level would be a key factor for your price.  Only T-Mobile would know the average prices people pay.  Samsung has been offering very good deals at time of new model introductions so I have gone that route for factory unlocked, which allows me to also have a Verizon priority MVNO for when T-Mobile signal fails or I manually override.
    • I also wanted to post a speed test result.. I only do these once in a while from my home area because we are gonna be the last to see changes, like load balancing.  Right now they are digging all over the place for fiber installs, so I'm not sure what the hold-up is on making the upload speed a little more in-line with download speeds, but here is the most recent from my area:   https://www.speedtest.net/my-result/a/10133670525
