Phone for USA, Japan, and Korea

by llama    Feb 14, 2009, 7:13 PM

Before leaving the U.S.

EVDO Voice Devices
Dial *228 and select option 2 (to obtain an updated PRL).
Note: Must be completed prior to international travel (within a Verizon Wireless digital service area).


Non-EVDO Voice Devices
Dial *228 and select option 2 prior to having the manual flash process performed.
This updates the Verizon Wireless systems so the customer is on the latest PRL.
Reduces the risk of a PRL being pushed out to this device prior to a customer's travel.
Manually update with the South Korea PRL in Verizon Wireless Stores prior to roaming in South Korea.
Advise the customer to not change their calling plan prior to traveling, which could overwrite the manual South Korea PRL.
Note: Non-EVDO types of BlackBerry, Treo, and PDA Smartphone cannot be used in South Korea.


Upon returning to the U.S.

All Voice Devices
Dial *228 and option 2 to change back to the PRL relevant for their calling plan (must be in a Verizon Wireless digital service area).
Note: If customers retain the previous PRL, the roam indicator will not be accurate.
