PRL 25013/51095 Changes

Recommended Posts

I just activated my new galaxy victory on Ting, and it picked up PRL 24013. From digiblur's "Every Sprint PRL" post on xda, 24xxx is a "business acct" PRL. Would this be the normal Sprint 24013 PRL, or would they have a modified version?

I'm on PRL 51095 here in Austin TX on my iphone5... but my phone switches between that and 31100 occasionally. My phone does not have a TX area code though. How does Sprint assign PRLs to subscribers? Is it phone number based, current geography based, or what?

I thought the iPhone 5 didn't use the 800 frequency. Or am I thinking about something else?

Where can I view the channel? I look under status under settings and didn't see anything.

 

Also, Im relatively new to CDMA, are PRLs pushed automatically to everyone or is it a manually updated thing?

By account type and device type. PRLs are national since people travel with their phones around the world.

Confused.. Did you even read the thread?

Both manual and automatic. Go into your debug screen under the 1x data.

I did and that's why I'm confused. I thought that the Network Vision update had some component when completed (the green sites) that the iPhone 5 couldn't support.

Tried to update my prl 4 times but it's still on 55013. Anyone have the prl file so I can do it manually?

That's what you should be on for that device.

Oh. I thought there was a new prl update after reading this thread. My mistake. Sorry about that!

That is the new one. 55xxx is on the Note2 since it has international capabilities. Pretty close to 25xxx now.

Enter "##debug#" in your phone dialer. Then enter "777468" for the lock code. The check out the 1x Engineering RF screen

The only thing the iPhone doesn't support is SVDO & SVLTE. Otherwise it supports CDMA/EVDO 800 & 1900, & LTE 1900, plus CDMA/EVDO on 850, and is a world roaming capable phone.

I believe it's 800 SMR support was only certified with the FCC for CDMA 1X, not LTE. As far as I understand its radio, there is no hardware limitation for this as it can transmit/receive any of the supported technologies on any of the supported bands, but it would require a software update to enable.

 

So YMMV, but after iDEN shuts down next year we may see Apple enable LTE on SMR or they may not. No one knows, but there's a much higher chance than most manufacturers given Apple's track record of updating older devices.

They are going to wait until 2014 to shut down iDEN... :blush:

When did this change? I keep hearing from people and material that June 30th 2013 is the date.

I think someone made a typo when they said next year.

 

I've heard June 30th 2013, too.

I would rather that Apple make the iPhone 5S compatible with 800 LTE and SVLTE capable. Granted, I'm not missing the feature, but it would be nice to have.

"On or around", yes. Nothing about that has changed, save for charging Nextel customers more (which, if I remember correctly, they're gonna be up to $20 extra per line some time next month).

Good point, didn't even consider the indicator. THE LGOG conflicts this though, as it shows LTE strength.

There was an update and it now displays 1x I believe

Doh, sorry my bad. It's a carry-over habit from last year.

I was traveling down I75 yesterday and my phone had just taken the 25013 update. As I was going through Cleveland TN around the 25th street exit I noticed I was roaming for a few moments and had 4G dispayed while I was roaming. I opened not roam control to see what network I was on and it said Verizon. Also for the first time I saw the roaming triangle notification turn to a very small R. Has anyone else picked up Verizon 4G while roaming or noticed the letter R indtead of the triangle on a Samsung Galaxy S3?

Your Sprint variant Galaxy S3 is incompatible with VZW LTE. So, you experienced Sprint LTE while roaming on VZW CDMA1X. This is nothing new -- it happens occasionally.

      I'm new to this forum, and I've seen people mention cell sites with specific ID's (for example, SF33XC664). Is there any significance to these ID's, and is there a way to decode them? Also, how do I figure out what the cell site ID's are for towers near me?
      Thanks! I'm excited to start talking on this site more 😀

      Samsung Network Vision equipment are highly distinct and fairly easy to spot compared to the equipment that other vendors are deploying. Sprint is Samsung's first extremely massive American contract (baring Clearwire) so there  should be no issues in confusing these equipment for another carrier which happens often with Ericsson NV equipment.

      Below are images of Samsung equipment which includes antennas, remote radio units, base stations, and their mounting configurations.

      Sprint announced the MVNO Google Fi will use its network for 5G in a press release (that is, once there are actually 5G capable phones compatible with Google Fi someday):
      https://newsroom.sprint.com/sprint-to-provide-5g-wireless-services-for-google-fi.htm
       
      This is the first I've heard about Fi and 5G so far. Google has pretty much kept mum on the topic, so I'm somewhat encouraged.
