Given the fact that Virgin has access to Extended Coverage ever since it's Inner Circle plan still now with it's current one at least according to customer service. Shouldn't Virgin be using PRL 55070 like it was with Inner Circle or is 7080 correct? I feel like there's an issue that isn't being paid attention too. Does PRL 7080 have the necessary stuff to make the device roam on Sprints extended partners.
iPhone 5 running iOS 7.1.2. Carrier "Sprint 16" and PRL 51101.
In the past I have been able to use the method of replacing carrier.prl in the sprint_lte_us carrier bundle folder, use the PRL push flag in carrier.plist, and with a few reboots I could get full time verizon 3g roaming with "prl 00001."
I am now visiting Alaska and am stuck on PRL 51101 with "extended" coverage and 1x data. I have tried every PRL I can find (11114, 11119, 53135, 00001) and I seem not to make any difference. After making the prl changes and after the last reboot I am stuck at no service. When checking phone info it will still say 51101.
I have to restore a backup of the sprint_lte_us carrier bundle folder and then things will work again after a reboot.
Any ideas? WIll the PRL update only work if there is native Sprint service around to start with?
When things are working with 51101 @ 1x speeds on "extended" I can do the ##update# and it say success.
Any help appreciated, would just like 3g data while traveling.
Well if you have Sprint 15x15 L1900 like we do here in Portland then you can have uploads that fast.. and yes the screenshot shows me currently on wifi but look at the external IP of the test and you will see it was Sprint.

I just tried to get my brother in law a magic box and it says his address is a no go. He literally lives a half mile from me and closer to the towers than me. My magic box gold works perfectly at his house actually better there than my house gets band 41 donor and says excellent signal whereas i can only get band 25 donor with "poor" signal displayed on the magic box yet my address is good to go in the address checker. Hell my phone picks up band 41 from town better than the magic box does. Maybe they rely on the coverage map to help decide if your address is eligible or not. What does the coverage map show for your address? Sent from my SM-G965U using Tapatalk
That's a shame...NR won't be as great with only 40 MHz of spectrum on air. This leaves almost half of Sprint's 2.5 GHz spectrum unused in most markets...
It sounds like we will see a big drop in LTE capacity here in Seattle with the M-MIMO launch considering we have five L2500 carriers on air throughout much of the market.
