Why does Sprint have 800 SMR turned off in some PRLs?

At the very least, it is left out of LTE devices that have international support, so iPhone 5, Note II, Photon Q for example. Why are they doing this? All of these devices support that!

 

56012 is the latest in that series of PRLs.

You guys are missing his question... the 55xxx/56xxx series have it turned off. These two series are found on LTE devices with GSM capabilities (as listed in the OP). Around the time the iPhone5 came out the 800SMR was removed from the series. I'm not saying it was due to that phone but it was around that time. It has been a head scratcher for myself on why they have done this. We have confirmed that iPhone5 and NoteII work on 800SMR by loading other PRLs here at S4GRU.com. The PhotonQ had 800SMR support at one time but was removed so it is not this phone. I'm not sure what other phones have GSM capabilities as I don't keep up with the non-flagship phones.

 

You used to be able to load your own PRL but it was removed in the latest update on the NoteII and S3. You can however correct the "issue" if you root and apply a simple patch.

Interesting, so SID 476, etc. are all in the PRLs?

You might want to reconsider that "notation" for the Note 2. Every time I see it, I read "Notell" -- like some hybrid between Nortel and Rotel.

That's the new policy... Notell - no tell you about LTE upgrades!
