PRL 602 Error


Recommended Posts

I've been getting this error frequently lately, especially when being in an LTE location most of the day due to work. When I leave, and go into a 3G network, and want to browse the internet, I have no data connection to browse, even though I still see the 3G icon, and SignalCheck Pro shows there is a network connection. It's getting frustating! I reset my phone off and on, and still get this error.


At home connecting to WiFi, I don't this error. Being in a 3G network at home, the next day is fine until I leave work, and back into this 602 error when on way home. What's causing this to happen? I read yhe PRL articles here a while back, and have a good understanding it has nothing to do with connecting to towers. I called Sprint about this, and a couple I spoke to said I'm not connecting to a nearby tower, and one said it my be the radio/antenna in my phone that my need checking out at a Sprint repair store.

Likely just an issue with LTE device provisioning in your area.


Our repeater in our store is having that exact issue with provisioning devices. Connecting them to WiFi works perfectly as it's a different provisioning server in use to program them. The main network here though works fine for provisioning, just something about how our repeater is being backhauled through the network.

I just had a huge issue with the past 24 hours after Modem & Kernel flash wiped all my activation info. I replaced MSID and data login info but still no data connection with after going back to Stock, a Hard Reset, Hands Free Activation or Profile Update (which is where error showed up).


Long -> Short Sprint rep said it was a Samsung only error and needs to be elevated to manufacturer.  Give Sprint a call and have them send off a ticket, mine was fixed within a couple hours after having no data all day.

Thanks for responding. As for Deval's question, I didn't do a hard reset, but restarted a couple of times.


halcyoncmdr, that makes makes a lot sense after reading up on provisioning info for telecommunications. And when I get the error, it's always at the same exact location arriving at, or passing through it.


AJ, when I called Sprint a couple of times, some reps said it's a tower connection issue, and 1 tech said it's my device antenna/radio that may need attention. Nobody mentioned a Samsung only error. Then again, reps tell us all sorts of things. I will call again, and mention provision and/or Samsung error.

    • Luckily, that hasn't arisen in my area where I am, aside from having B14 (well, ALL of AT&T signal) not work at all in Coosa county, Alabama. I wish there was a service for first responders that would go to ANY available carrier, provider, etc..and in the absolute worst case scenario, would give us service. I've been on an ambulance, trying to find an address, and my driver actually had to pull over and we pulled out a map book and tried to find the road using the "old fashioned way".. and that takes valuable time away that sometimes may be vital to someone surviving. BUT, I will say that I've only seen that in Coosa county... both my Tmo and AT&T phones had zero service and I couldn't get GPS, and neither could my driver (VZW service). Maybe satellite will help with that in those times where that occurs.. but that's an extreme example.     Edit to add: Let me add some context to this.. Coosa county isn't regular coverage area for my job.. so it's not a regular thing that we are dispatched to Coosa county.. and actually, there's been a change and that county now has it's own ambulance service that operates.. so the only time we might receive a request is if it's a multiple casualty scenario, or it's a transfer going home from our contracted hospital.  The way that reads above, it may seem like we are just out without some sort of GPS gadget to direct us on where to go, but for the most part, we know our coverage area pretty well. Dispatch can also give us cross streets for reference inside our coverage area (and our home county). Coosa just isn't a regular area for my job to run in. 
    • "Priority" doesn't mean "exclusivity."  When emergency services don't need B14, AT&T can use it for everyone else.  The trade-off is that when it is needed for emergency services, they not only get all of B14, but they have also arranged for priority on the rest of the AT&T network as well.  Beats having spectrum sitting unused most of the time and then not having enough when disaster strikes, as it could be without a partnership with a wireless company like AT&T. - Trip
    • I've wondered if being on the first responder plan has the priority over other 'regular' lines in the same way firstnet does (or, supposed to do with B14...I've seen normal customers on AT&T hit B14 so it's not {specifically} for Firstnet only)...  
    • T-Mobile prices people pay are all over the map. The free lines are key, so take them if ever offered again.  Your priority level would be a key factor for your price.  Only T-Mobile would know the average prices people pay.  Samsung has been offering very good deals at time of new model introductions so I have gone that route for factory unlocked, which allows me to also have a Verizon priority MVNO for when T-Mobile signal fails or I manually override.
    • I also wanted to post a speed test result.. I only do these once in a while from my home area because we are gonna be the last to see changes, like load balancing.  Right now they are digging all over the place for fiber installs, so I'm not sure what the hold-up is on making the upload speed a little more in-line with download speeds, but here is the most recent from my area:   https://www.speedtest.net/my-result/a/10133670525
