Roaming question?


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys, I'm hoping someone can help me out here. I have a Sprint Iphone5 which I THOUGHT would have the ability to roam on Verizon's network when I'm not inside Sprints native coverage. Occasionally I travel to my friends hoods in Salem NY 12865 & another friends hood Arlington VT 05250. Both of these areas have native Verizon coverage, no Sprint. In the past I have been able to visit both neighborhoods with my old Sanyo Sprint handset and the phone would switch to digital roaming (Verizon) no issues. I spent some time in both of these areas this past weekend with my Sprint Iphone5 and I had no service the entire time. I don't understand this because my friends who have Verizon phones had full signal strength and my phone didn't register Extended Network at all. My current PRL is 31100. Any ideas guys? I always just figured that where there was a Sprint or Verizon tower I'd be covered... Guess not. Any Info is greatly appreciated! Thanks , Jim

If I remember right that odd 31100 or whatever prl did not have any roaming in it. It is more like a default prl that the device comes with used for provisioning only. It should update to the 51095 for the iphone5 which has 1x vzw roaming in most areas where available.

I forgot to add in my post that yes I do have roaming enabled, my bad for not clarifying that. Thank you. Digiblur... I think I Love you! I was really hoping you would chime in. Much respect, I've read online that you are THE MAN for this so THANK YOU for the info. I suspected 31100 was some generic PRL because I JUST had my phone swapped for a power button issue. My sis has same phone but lives in AZ and SHE HAS PRL 51095. Digiblur you TOTALLY ROCK I hope I can repay you for your help. I was so bummed thinking I was stuck with that PRL. Now I just have to figure how to update it. Going to call Sprint tech support. Thanks SO VERY MUCH!

Glad to help out ;) No repayment is necessary to me at all. I do recommend throwing a few dollars towards the server/hosting costs for S4GRU as we wouldn't have a place like this to hang out and share information like this. It's easy plus you get access to a TON of information that you won't find anywhere else.

    • I did mention it before, but I don't remember if I did post a picture of it, so I did a 2-for-1 special the second time around. Ah, so that is what I saw. I walk by Boys and Girls field if the C train takes forever to show up in the late evening, but I cared more about getting home than investigating it lol
    • August update finally arrived for S22+ unlocked tonight 👍
    • You also snagged a shot of the new oDAS in there, too.    I also spotted one while on LIRR above Atlantic Ave. They’re starting to really get rolled out now.
    • I have added T-Mobile eNB 879366, a Sprint convert site, to the list of gig+ sites, as I was able to break the 800 Mbps ceiling with it. I'm still trying to understand the DAS mess at LGA and locate them, but the bad thing about it is inside the terminals I can occasionally pick up the macros inside. It anchors 5G, which is great for a speed boost, but occasionally data hangs because my device is having a handoff frenzy trying to pick the best macro and/or band for the 5G connection.   I have spotted 2 more Dish sites, one on the corner of Church Avenue and East 16th (photo below), and the other is an in progress site co-located with Verizon eNB 81069.   At Verizon eNB 81069, the ports on the Dish panel weren't connected yet, brand new racks were being used on the roof Verizon is on, and it looks like Sprint's equip is still up on the building next door.
    • Neat!  Thanks.  Most of my issues at the moment are from inexperience.  I've never used AT commands and I'm bad at Python.  I'm not really sure what the best way is to send AT commands to the modem; socat seems to work, and there are Python libraries that should do it, but I don't really know what I'm doing.  - Trip
