    New PRL on VZ

    Well, like a good little boy, I did my *228 to update prl and there is a new one...

    Now I am

    50143

    running on 44/29

    Just an FYI

    I also just changed my plan after my update to the Unlimited "IN" network minutes. Didnt change the PRL after the change in rate plans.. just an FYI.
    NEW TOY?! Gotta have it!!!

    Banner Display?

    Does this new PRL display your personal banner or the Verizon Wireless banner for the first 30 seconds after opening the phone?

    Wow, just tried to update mine yesterday morning (or was it the day before )and it remained the same. Just did it and, sure enough, I'm now 50143 also.

    Yes, it does. If anything, it seems to go to the Verizon banner quicker than it used to. Before you could actually see what my banner said before it switched to Verizon, now it's just a flash. But, it does go back after 30 seconds or so.

    PRL is "preferred roaming list". The PRL lets your phone know the preferred cellular tower to utilize based on your location. Verizon recommends updating your phone's PRL once a month because cellular towers are constantly under construction and being upgraded.

    "Enhanced Roaming Indicator". I believe it distinguishes between your home network (on Verizon), roaming networks within Verizon (e.g., you live in New York and visit Dallas, but are still in Verizon territory), and actual roaming on another network.

    That's right, (per VZW recommendation) its a good idea to do it when your bill arrives, so you don't forget. Now if I could only find the KWPST
    Nothing lasts forever, except true love. If it does not last, it wasn't true....

    And, you certainly do it when your bill arrives if you haven't updated it in a while and you get roaming charges that you have to deal with Verizon to get rid of!!

    Updated to 50143. No Verizon banner. Just the Kyocera banner for a few seconds, then my personal banner. Always been that way since I installed a personal banner. 29/44, no ERI, no 1X icon (D only, but do have 1X connectivity). Phone was originally sold as an Alltel phone a year ago, but only activated on VZW.

    I updated on Verizon, dialing *228, both option 1 and option 2. I now show PRL as 50143 and ERI as 50020. Does anyone have higher #s?

    Okay, so what happens if we (7135 owners) press 1?
    I've converted, bye bye 7135, hello 600!

    Thank you for the reminder

    Thanks so much for the reminder to update my phone. I get Verizon for the first 30 seconds now and then back to my banner.
