    I was searching through the earlier threads on PRLs and couldnt find a clear answer as to what they were... searched thru google and found this at http://www.mountainwireless.com/prl.htm:

    Not sure if the 10019 or 10018 effects the treo since the 10019 update seems to be for off network roaming, which i assume the treo doesnt do since its single band.

    sorry if this info is redundant.

    4. SPRINT PCS PRL's
    -Dual-Band:

    10018 Released March, 2003.
    10019 Released April, 2003.
    These two PRL's had many changes across the nation. Generally, with the introduction of Sprint's "Free & Clear America" plans, there has mostly been re-alignment as to which of the A or B cellular-band carriers are preferred for roaming. In most cases, no additional digital roaming has been added. However, if a non-CDMA carrier like AT&T was lowered in priority, and a CDMA carrier like Verizon was raised in priority, there would be a greater chance of digital roaming, with the reverse also being true.

    10014 Released in 2001.
    10015 Released in late 2001
    10017* Released November, 2002.
    *What's changed in Sprint PCS PRL 10017:
    Based on user observations, 10017 gives quicker access to (more channels in more) towers in the following markets:
    - Winchester, VA
    - Clarksburg, WV
    - Charleston, WV
    - Charlottesville, VA
    - Roanoke, VA
    - Alamogordo, NM
    - Harrisburg, MS
    - Durango, CO
    There were no changes in U.S. roaming partners. There were additions of international roaming partners, but are not active, yet

    I'm wondering if the 10019 update doesn't solve some battery-life issues with the Treo 300 by preventing the radio from searching for towers it can't connect to. I called *2 this morning, and it pushed 10019 to me (I had 10018 from the FW update).

    We'll see if I'm right...
