    I use the VZW 700p. I noticed a few threads here regarding updates to the Sprint version of the phone and was wondering about updates.
    On the VZW network, every call to tech support ends with a reminder to dial *228 to update the phone. While this will update the phone function, does this also have any Palm software updates? Or does that come in the form of a download from Palm's web site if, and when, it becomes available?
    Thanks!

    There are not any Palm updates for the 700p at this time. The update Sprint users have been talking about is the PRL update, which updates the tower listing for Sprint. You will have to wait around for Palm to release an update...we are all holding our breath.

    This is regarding to the PRL (Preferred Roaming List - http://www.phonescoop.com/glossary/term.php?gid=11 ) of the phone. It basically updates your phone to acknowledge towers a little better in different areas. This changes quite often as new contracts and towers are established all the time. Because of the nature of our devices, you will probably not see an OTA system (Palm update). This update requires the device to be in a bootstrap mode and isn't easily done when not synched up. So when you get the *228 or *2 updates, it is your phones ability to see clearly nothing to do with Palm (which you are correct, will be done via Sprint's (Verizon's) site or Palm's, but probably both).
