Anyone lose service from the recent storms?

 

We had bad storms come through Friday June 29th in Ohio and lost power.

 

Sprint and AT&T has very spotty service now. Usually 4 bars of 3g. I only roam now and most of my calls fail.

 

It's 96 today and still no power, AEP says possibility of power restoration on July 8th.

 

Storm damage at my house...

Well towers usually have back up batteries and a generator or something like that from what I've heard else where but it might be cause of the tower went down or something fell on top of the equipment or something of that nature.

No you need a PC to do this. Here is the link for updating the PRL. What you can do is flash one of the 1111x PRL's which is a standard Sprint PRL but it allows 3G roaming instead of 1X so you could flash one of those PRL's and download Roam Control for $3.99 and force roaming when you need it. I just set it up on my EVO LTE yesterday with PRL 11119 and can force roam to Verizon with 3G when I need to. Works much better than flashing an actual Verizon PRL because you can go back and forth on Sprint and Verizon without flashing a new PRL each time.
