preferred roaming list update


Sep 18, 2005, 4:53 PM
I was reading through the VZW site today and found this.

They say you should dial *228 every couple of months to update your "preferred roaming list". Has anyone done this? Is it a good idea? Does it update the firmware (and get rid of the copy option)?


PS. Does anyone know how to complain to VZW about lack of service in a particular area?

They will say that their findings were within their standards and that they "do not guarantee service inside of buildings" and will also probably suggest getting a new phone.

PRL updates are not capable of updating your firmware.

Funny enough, I actually like VZW. That said, I do have a connection issue.

My ideal solution would be to make them give me service in my dead zone, but I don't know of any way to make that request...
