    PRL questions - 3 diff prls on 2 phones

    My buddies around me at work have been having the 1x icon showing up on their 6600's but mine has never shown it. I was using prl20007 while they were at prl10025. I called into customer care and it updated my phone automatically while i was on the line to prl 10028. Why is mine at 10028 and they have 10025?

    We have the same packages/level of service. I still dont have the 1x icon either.

    20007 is a evdo prl from months ago

    10025 is an old prl

    10028 is the current prl you can get if you call with *2

    i have 1X to the right of my "Start" for my start menu. then my data icon, then vol, then clock.

    i have wisbar loaded so its a bit different when its loaded, but the above applies to a hardreset device.

    There has to be. The two folks at work have never loaded any other prls than what came with the phone, nor do they even browse these boards or do anything that could be construed as hacking the phone.

    The only updates they have is what sprint has put on them. All 3 of us work at the sprint campus.

    It appears the 10025 prl had the 1x icon and the 10028 does not however.

    That's very interesting - first that I've heard of anyone with the default radio stack to get a 1x icon. As you probably know, you usually only get a PRL update OTA if you call in and have your account flagged for an update. 10028 is the latest PRL, but others will work as well but won't have the latest roaming agreements. I'm not aware of anything in the 1002x series PRLs that would provide the phone with any 1x indicator unless something has been changed in the radio stack, and you've said that they've never done so. Very interesting indeed. I have two friends on the Sprint campus who did upgrade their radio stack but have since downgraded and they do not have a 1x indicator (not sure what PRLs they are on, but I'm sure that I can find out).
