    On many networks, regularly updating the PRL is advised if the subscriber uses the device outside the home area frequently, particularly if they do so in multiple different areas. This allows the phone to choose the best roaming carriers, particularly "roaming partners" with whom the home carrier has a cost-saving roaming agreement with.

    For example, say you had a Sprint PCS phone, and were travelling in an area with no Sprint coverage, weak Verizon coverage, and strong Qwest coverage. The PRL would tell the phone to look for towers using Sprint's band for that area. Finding none, it might tell the phone to search for towers in Verizon's band next, perhaps because Sprint's roaming agreement with Qwest was not as favorable, or none existed. The phone would use Verizon's towers, as dictated by the PRL, even though Qwest might provide a better signal.

    atleast once every 2 months but thats being liberal. prl essentially is a list of towers to use on the roaming carrier (thus preferred roaming). its updates the list of towers to use wheather its gained or lost towers is up to the roaming carrier but it affects evdo roaming and 1x.

    just like example...

    67049 could be evdo roaming on alltel towers
    67058 could be verizon had enough for sprint leasing thier roaming capabilities and turn it off completely.


    thank you mytether

    I guess there's no way to see who you're roaming on, huh? Be nice if I could scroll down the list until I got to the carrier with the best signal near my house.
