just switched to Sprint and my PRL indicates 33046. Any reason why it does not indicate 55071?

iPhone XS (byod) 

unlocked from the Apple Store

Have you done a ##CLEAR# then a ##UPDATE# since switching?

Yes sir.

I’ve done both and even reset my network settings and still showing PRL 33046. I’ve rebooted my phone multiple times, I have even turned off LTE and done the update on 3G and still shows PRL 33046.

 

Any other explanation? I’m still running iOS 12.4 too if that helps. I keep reading about how buggy iOS 13 has been so I have decided not to update until Apple sorts out all the bugs.

That’s what I was thinking...

Will my coverage be affected in any way if I stay on 12.4 a few more days? I plan on going to Sugar Hill, NH for the holidays and on Sprint’s coverage maps, it indicates I will be roaming but it will appear as Sprint native coverage on my iPhone.

I’m thinking i’ll be roaming on AT&T or T-Mobile. 

 

Please advise.

If anything at all it should help with the addition of T-Mobile roaming.

I meant to say, will I still have the same coverage as those on PRL 55071 or will my phone not connect to the extended roaming towers if I stay on PRL 33046?

PRL 33046 is older I believe so it probably won't roam in "Extended" areas.

I've had PRL's in the 5xxxx series ever since iOS 9.3.3 so I don't think the iOS version is the problem.

Someone here mentioned the SIM

I saw that post on reddit and today I contacted Sprint via chat and they told me my PRL is correct but they can't explain why my wife's is 55071 and mine is 33046.

 

She is under a family plan with her sister's and I'm on my own plan on the byod but all my services work just fine. I just hope it does not affect my roaming.

Are your SIM card's part and version numbers identical?

Excuse my ignorance but how do I check?

The version number is printed on the sim card itself.

Interesting. Mine does not contain "SG".

You're going to have a different SIM card on that newer iPhone so the question is does it match the other iPhone's SIM?

My wife also has a XS that we bought through Apple but under Sprint. I would have to check her SIM card later when i get home

My SIM card ends with SG10003a

I figured it out, I updated my software from iOS 12.4 to 13.3 and the PRL changed to 55071.

Oh wow, you’re right. Mine now says PRL 55072.

so now the PRL updates automatically, no need to do ##UPDATE#?

      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.

      Today PRL 51095 was pushed to iPhone 5 on Sprint. Anyone with a LTE world phone also get the same PRL file?
       
      Not sure what is different yet. If I knew how to extract the PRL from my phone I would gladly send the file to digiblur for analysis.
    • By serqion
      Does anyone in the area where Sprint released their LTE coverage has the PRL from the iPhone 4s? If so, how has the speed increased? If it's a lot better, please upload the PRL so I can try it out.
       
      Thanks

    • A great article by Jim Patterson on rcrwireless.com. Some nuggets format 2.5GHz: “Braxton, Mike and John have authorized me to do some work at risk this year in getting ourselves ready to deploy the 2.5 gigahertz spectrum as soon as the deal closes. Nobody is more impatient for this thing to close than me. I wish I was deploying 2.5 radio on the network right now, but we’ve done work at low cost in terms of securing, permitting, and authorization to deploy 2.5. So as soon as this deal closes, we’re in a position where we can start laying down 2.5 radio on the new T-Mobile network.” Enterprise:   T-Mobile inherits not only a trough of spectrum with the Sprint acquisition, but hundreds of seasoned enterprise sales executives.  As Mike Sievert recently acknowledged in his appearance at the Citi conference a month ago, T-Mobile is under-indexed in enterprise.   Sprint’s enterprise roots are significant, having commanded close to 20% of the enterprise data market as recently as 2006.  There are many sales executives who cut their teeth with fleet management solutions (Nextel and Sprint), wireless access solutions (Clearwire and Sprint) and IP MPLS (Sprint).  *Without going through all of the details it’s important to note that the Apple iPhone 7 and iPhone 8 (and their variants) have the 2.5 GHz band already installed in the GSM (T-Mobile) version, and that the CDMA (Sprint) version of these devices already has T-Mobile’s Low Band 700 MHz spectrum, a.k.a. Band 12 (and Band 66 in the case of iPhone 😎 already enabled.  The CDMA version of the iPhone SE also has Band 12 enabled. Bottom line: there is the potential for backwards compatibility within the current handsets. And the iPhone XS (and variants) and iPhone 11 (and variants) are universal devices and include T-Mobile’s 600 MHz band which will be have a big benefit for Sprint customers. https://www.rcrwireless.com/20200216/analyst-angle/the-sunday-brief-new-t-mobile-cat-5-hurricane  
    • Good.  I bought shares in Shentel (SHEN) and US Cellular (USM) a year or two ago when their stock prices went down.  Waiting for a business consolidation event that causes their value to double or more.
    • Nice.  All three of my 4G Sprint phones are ready or near ready for upgrade.  I will wait until the "attractive offers" start.
    • I believe this has been discussed here, but is there a way to force the MB to latch onto B25 instead of B41? Where mine is located, it latches on to a VERY weak B41 signal instead of B25. None of my phones can get B41 at this location so the signal is very, very weak. The problem with latching on to B41, I get a decent download speed from the MB (close to 20 Mbps) but upload is less than 1 Mbps. This is with 1 user. I notice that if I run a speedtest on the MB, during the upload segment, the MB will actually fall offline (lose all LTE data activity). No data throughput when connected to the MB for 2-3 minutes after/during an upload speedtest. Would the MB phone support team be able to force the MB on to B25?
    • Those people that think that T-Mobile does not need to offer attractive offers to upgrade the handsets just imagine what kind of offers AT&T and Verizon will start offering to Sprint customers. A brand new iPhone on us or an attractive trade-in offer if you bring your number to us and you won't have to worry about these integration pains. Oh and these attractive per month plans. They will try to poach each and every Sprint customers. So T-Mobile will have to fight for each and every customer. They better come prepared.
