    I've always been under the impression that the Preferred Roaming List is, as the name would suggest, a list of which carriers to roam on in various markets (and in which order to try them). The way I've read it, it has nothing to do with new towers of roaming partners, which would be detected automatically by a phone trying to roam--and certainly nothing to do with the towers of your home carrier. Have I been wrong all this time? (If I am, it wouldn't be the first time.)

    Exactly what I thought as well, and since I just switched plans from Simply Everything to 450 unlimited data, I no longer want to roam anyway during peak hours as it deduct minutes.

    Can someone clear up if this is the Roaming carrier update setting, or if it really checks for new towers on the home network?
    I am equivalent to a man dammit.
