Just so everyone knows, there is a prl update available, version 60683.

 

Almost seems like after doing the update, my data speeds have dropped significantly.

Yeah, figured out what the problem was. If you have the proxy fix applied, you will have to go back in and set it again.

 

Back up to 2.3Mbps d/l speeds again.

Luckily, I caught my phone when they pushed the PRL update. The screen lit up and the 3G icon disappeared. It then said it was updating the PRL. I immediately pulled the battery, because I modified my PRL with the 11115 one, so I can get 3G while roaming. Fortunately, it didn't update! :D

I still need to do the PRL 11115 hack. I just wish I could do it from my CyanogenMOD.

What kind of phone do you have? I just downloaded QPST and did it from there. You have to put the phone in modem mode to get it to recognize it though. On the Epic 4G, it's dialer code ##8778#, and then you change the USB mode to Modem from PDA. Just make sure when you are done to change it back to PDA if you want to access your files from the SD card when hooking it up to the computer. :P

You can if you hack your PRL to run PRL 11115. It roams on Verizon EVDO first with that PRL. However, I'm certain it's a violation of Sprint's TOS to do it, so be forewarned. If you consistently go over the 350MB of roaming data limit that Sprint has, you are likely to get terminated. So it has to be done very carefully.

I use to update my PRL on a regular basis. I no longer do that, seeing that some are running into technical issues with their phones once the PRL has been updated.

Actually, the 11115 is a Sprint PRL. It will choose Sprint first, then if you have to roam (no Sprint service available), it will search for Alltel EVDO, then Verizon EVDO. So no worries about exceeding 350 MB of roaming data, because it isn't always on Verizon. That would be the 00001 PRL, which shows your phone is on the Sprint network, but it is actually on Verizon. (Doesn't show the roam indicator). :)

Yes. But if you are in an area where you roam often, like where I live, you can easily use 350MB of data roaming when you are on EVDO. Sprint doesn't care whether you roam on Alltel or Verizon or Us Cellular. If you keep using high amounts of roaming data, you will get the axe.

True. Just depends on each persons individual situation. If you roam a lot, then I wouldn't recommend doing it. However, if you just want a seamless transfer to roaming with 3G and not slow down, then it would be for you.

I've got 5 phones on my account, and I'm the only one that does this. The most roaming I think I've done in one month was 250 MB. Do you think Sprint would cancel my contract if only one phone was roaming over 350 MB? I have always wondered that. I think it would be dumb if they canceled a $250/mo contract just because one phone on the account roamed excessively.

I installed 11115 on my new Epic 4G Touch. It was nice to be able to use 3G when I roamed to Taos yesterday.

    • It would not surprise me if T-Mobile leases UScellular's used spectrum while converting sites for up to a year.
    • Here's the spectrum breakdown by band. There's some 2.5 in there as well. The remaining spectrum is definitely enough to keep running FWA on while finding a buyer, and since the towers aren't conveying with the subs and spectrum there's nothing stopping USCellular from competing with T-Mobile on FWA until Verizon or AT&T decide the spectrum is valuable enough to take off TDS's hands. If they go that route, I wouldn't be surprised if FWA gets rebranded under TDS.
    • Transaction Details and Financial Profile T-Mobile will pay approximately $4.4 billion for the assets being acquired from UScellular in the transaction in a combination of cash and up to $2.0 billion of debt to be assumed by T-Mobile through an exchange offer to be made to certain UScellular debtholders prior to closing. To the extent any debtholders do not participate in the exchange, their bonds will continue as obligations of UScellular and the cash portion of the purchase price will be correspondingly increased. Following the closing of the transaction, UScellular will retain ownership of its other spectrum as well as its towers, with T-Mobile entering into a long-term arrangement to lease space on at least 2,100 additional towers being retained. T-Mobile does not expect the transaction to impact the company’s 2024 guidance or 2024 authorized shareholder return program. T-Mobile expects this transaction will yield approximately $1.0 billion in effective total opex and capex annual run rate cost synergies upon integration, with total cost to achieve the integration currently estimated at between $2.2 billion to $2.6 billion. The company plans to reinvest a portion of synergies toward enhancing consumer choice, quality and competition in the wireless industry. The transaction, which is subject to the satisfaction of customary closing conditions and receipt of certain regulatory approvals, is expected to close in mid-2025.
    • The way I heard it, these were for sites that T-Mobile would not be keeping, and presumably is how they would handle decommissioning the equipment from them.  This would presumably happen because they're already on the tower or on an adjacent tower.  For example, in Keysville, VA, T-Mobile is on a tower directly adjacent to the existing US Cellular-owned tower. https://maps.app.goo.gl/kefNy451QXYFSqi5A T-Mobile at left; at right is the US Cellular-owned tower with both US Cellular and Verizon gear on it. - Trip
    • My gut opinion is they are waiting for technology improvements. C-band is seeing some of those emerge now which will extend its useful range and carrying capacity.  Given it current short range, 24GHz is best for places where people are seated in sizeable numbers, although I would not rule out business pico cells. Of course, Verizon is using mmWave small cells quite well for FWA by placing them outside large apartment buildings that only allow one ISP with outrageous charges. UScellular and some Verizon have been using it to do the job of microwave links to preserve licences (4 needed per county).
