If you have a TracFone that uses the Verizon carrier, and you are
experiencing coverage problems, it might be time for you to update the PRL
in the phone using *228 Send.
I have a TracFone Nokia 5180i and just noticed yesterday the version of the
PRL in the phone has recently changed.
WAS: PRL version 40015
IS: PRL version 40016
I don't know what the difference is, but more than likely the 50xxx series
PRL's are also affected.
For the CDMA Nokia(s) you can see your current PRL version in your phone by
*#VER# or *#837#

It would seem that JoshIII the spammer has set up a website to support
his habit of preying upon new cell phone owners so he doesn't have to

Also be advised that the site triggered my antivirus software by
