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.
My UNLOCKED S-9 can not transmit to the cell site if Band 41 is weak either. It supposedly has HPUE but I do not see any improvement over phones without HPUE. To make it wore, recently the parameters have changed that allow me to hang onto Band 41 and band 25 with a signal of -130. Nothing works at the level, but apparently somebody decided to keep me on extremely poor connections and not allow the phone to drop to a better band. It probably was done in preparation for VOLTE, but it sure has killed my data experience. If I am trying to download an attachment to a G-Mail message, I can not do it on band 41 when being held to very bad levels. -120 was not working and now I find my phone hanging onto -130 level.
Does anyone here have an issue with Band 41 not working well (or at all) on their S10 series device at signal levels of -104 dBmv or worse? It's like the phone can't reach the tower to send requests. I never had this issue with my Note 8 and it worked well up to around -120 dBmv.
I can't help but wonder if my launch-day S10+ is defective.
