Current Sprint PRLs

Recommended Posts

This also happened to me for both my iPhone 5s & my sister's iPhone 5. Neither of them even scan for LTE anymore.

Yep, 606xx just sounds like an old legacy non LTE PRL to me. Maybe I should let Sprintcare know on Twitter? They will fix it!

 

Let's try this again but without the oops.

I'm also on that PRL on my iPhone 5 and I'm not getting LTE anymore either. Must be like digiblur said and it's just a legacy non-LTE PRL.

Curious as to what's in 25017.

Please do! My EVO Shift was on 60651 until I activated it on Ting about 2 weeks ago, so 60657 is definitely a non LTE PRL.

I will quote myself again... I would have a better chance at tweeting Obama to get the space shuttle flying again than I would with Sprintcare fixing an issue.

 

Their hands are tied to looking up NV forecasts and telling you how to do a PRL update to get better coverage.

 

Email Dan@sprint, works much better.

Now you guys got me thinking... LTE started working at work this afternoon. I was getting 2 megabit downloads instead of 1x speeds. Bet this had something to do with it.

60657 was from over 4 years ago. Checked my old PRL stash... Speechless.

You should start peddling non-LTE PRLs to all of your friends and neighbors down there, soon enough you'll have the entire network to yourself! ;)

I think digi is hinting at the iPhone causing issues with Sprint's LTE network, so they're pushing out a non-LTE PRL? If it's from 4 years ago that means it's also pre SMR; maybe that has something to do with it?

There has to be some sort of jackass reasoning to pushing a non-LTE prl to phones on their network, rendering thousands of devices "blocked" from accessing LTE. A balsy testing process for something? Or, the worst mistake they've ever made.

I've sent up a flare.... let's see what happens.  Will keep you posted!

 Here is what I posted in one of the threads in the Apple/iPhone/iOS section:

I have tried to update today also, because it seems that 60657 also doesn't allow roaming, considering I'm at school where I always get 5 bars of Extended 1x/3G on my iPhone 5 but right now I am currently getting "No Service" and "Searching" constantly :td::wall:

Kind of frustrated that I can only receive iMessages and can't receive any texts do to having no roaming capability for what I assume is this prl's fault. Hopefully Sprint will get this fixed.

I look at it this way, there's finally a benefit to living in Cleveland - since we hardly have LTE or 800 anywhere in our market (near me anyway) I'm not missing out on anything sitting here on 60657. Hey, I just like the drama....there haven't been any major updates in my area so at least I have something to get excited about now!

I've logged an official ticket with Sprint. The customer service rep couldn't get her head around why Sprint would offer a 4 year old PRL for an update.

 

I suggest everybody do the same.

My Nexus 5 was updated to 60657 when I was connected to a tower around Shawnee Mission PKWY and Metcalf in Kansas City. I was still connected to LTE. When I got home and read about LTE issues on this PRL, I updated again and it went to 55017. That would be when I was connected to a tower on 60th and Roe. Maybe this helps.

If you guys still have 60657 after hitting PRL update on your devices please call into sprint or send an email to dan@sprint.com explaining you received a 60657 PRL update version automatically on your device and now your LTE does not work anymore.  Be sure to include your name and Sprint phone number when sending that email so they can contact you.

      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

      Recieved new PRL 25005 today, Had to do a manual update to get it..
      What tool does one use to see the differences?

    • I know that are as part of the merger Dish agreed that they will will convert a number of Sprint's stores into Dish stores.

    • On recent versions of Android, you are not likely to see it update every second except for in specific scenarios, but I'm glad it's updating regularly for you! For the benefit of whoever is interested.. signal updates from the OS are likely to be more frequent (but not guaranteed) if your device is moving fairly quickly (ie in a vehicle), and you are actively transferring data over the mobile network. When the connection is idle (including when you are using another connection method, like Wi-Fi), some things are not updated as frequently. Android does not publicly state anything much more specific than that. In reality, the signal strength is constantly changing, every millisecond, faster than the screen can even update.. but there's no reason for any mobile device to monitor it that intensely, the CPU and power impacts would be crazy. An overwhelming majority of mobile users don't even need it updating even every 10 seconds. As of last year, over 314 million Americans had mobile phones.. with some quick math, SCP is on less than 0.0032% of them 😆
    • I got frustrated enough to go to the nuclear option. Full factory reset and did not restore from a backup. SCP is now refreshing every 5 to 10 seconds, not quite the every second I prefer but still much more usable than when it takes several minutes. I wish I could identify specifically what is causing this. I don't think it is intended behavior if it is indeed the result of power management. Sent from my LM-G820 using Tapatalk
