    Question What is PRI in the option menu?

    On the phone screen type six 1's.
    Use the down key & choose Options
    Choose Version

    What does "PRI Version" mean?

    My phone was recently flashed to 29/44. (old was 19/34)

    SW Version is correctly displayed as
    SZ 1.0.29
    MZ 1.0.44

    But, the PRI version still says "7135_USC_MZ1034_p03.qcn"

    Does anyone know what that files does?

    Should the file say "...._MZ1044...."??

    Is there a way to COPY the correct file to the 7135?

    BTW - I have US Cellular as my carrier.

    Help!

    PRI = Product Release Instructions. It's the file your provider (or Kyocera) loaded onto the phone before you bought it containing the carrier logo, ESN, phone number, service settings, default preferred roaming list (PRL), etc.

    To edit/view this you have to have the Kyocera Phone Support Toolkit or some other way to extract the phone's data from the NVRAM, as a lot of phone settings are not stored in the Palm databases.

    ...one more thing: the version number in the PRI field indicates the original firmware version. It's essentially the filename they used in the Phone Support Toolkit, so it won't change as the phone is upgraded - *unless* your carrier backs up and overwrites the NVRAM with new data for each upgrade.

    as an example, mine says 7135_VERIZONB_MZ1044_P05.qcn

    Thank you for your explaining it to me.

    Should the PRI be the same as the firmware version OR does it even matter??

    Looks like it is common to have this happen if the firmware was upgraded.

    It's only the same when the firmware has never been upgraded.

    My parents have (non-PDAPhone) Kyocera's and the numbers don't match up on theirs either. Their phones were probably upgraded between manfuacturing and the sales floor.

    This will also happen if you switch providers - my fiancee has a Nokia originally from Alltel but now on Verizon, the software was updated by my local VZW tech so the initial load doesn't match the current version. All is OK, however. (She gets better signal strength on her old Nokia than I do on my 7135 )

    Hope this answers your questions. If you think of anything else, feel free to ask.
