    Look for PRL 10024 to be available OTA within the next couple of
    weeks. It will prioritize digital roaming over analog roaming in some
    additional markets.

    That's great to hear Larry. Ask your sources if they can provide what main
    markets it will apply for.

    Yeah I'll try and find out the scoop. I know that it will also add
    roaming capabilities in Australia and Isreal if that's of any
    importance to anyone.

    Update. PRL 10024 is out but is not yet available as an OTA update (as
    of yesterday 5/26).

    Ok it's now available both in store and OTA. I just called in and got
    it. No wait time, no hassle.

    Yea, I had to call in to get all three lines flagged. The rep said no
    problem, and while he was in the processing the flagging of the phones,
    asked me whether I was aware of what this new upgrade was for. I said for
    digital roaming ... he said absolutely, and mentioned the only reason he
    asked is that there was a misconception that it would improve coverage in
    SPCS covered areas.

    One thing that this new PRL will do in addition, I suspect, is also to
    extend the battery life (compared to analog ), while in an area roaming.

    My 4 phones are on a F&C America plan and had PRL 10023. It's 9:30pm PT
    and I just called *2 from phones 1 and 2, and after pressing 1 for
    English, Claire told me she had a free update for me and I waited a
    minute while it was installed. I never had to speak to a rep nor ask to
    have my phones flagged. Maybe F&CA phones get flagged automatically -
    an extra benefit for our $5/month!.

    The Samsung A620 (VGA1000) said I had PRL 00999 until I powered it off
    and on. Now Menu-8-0-scroll down shows 10024.
    On the Sanyo 8100, Menu-#-3 shows 10024.

    Still waiting to hear from my source about anything specific the
    update did. Maybe tomorrow.

    Are you sure that this adds coverage to Australia? I called the
    international roaming department several times and they keep saying
    that you need a GSM phone for Australia. Although I have been there
    several times and recieve a full signal, but could never place or
    receive any calls.

    You sure you WANT to roam with a SprintPCS phone at $4/minute to call
    back to the States?

    Per the following link http://tinyurl.com/3a7p6 , it shows SPCS having
    roaming agreements in place with a GSM carrier, at a cost of $1.50/min ...
    with LD included.

    As to you having a full signal, there is some CDMA coverage down there, but
    I suspect if this new PRL now does including roaming on a CDMA down under,
    there were no roaming agreements in place when you were there, and at this
    time, they haven't updated their international roaming web pages yet.

    Would someone be so kind as to extract & post the raw contents of PRL
    10024?

    But a momentary glance is all that would be needed to determine
    definitively if Qwest SID 5461 has indeed been removed from NEG
    designation & increased in priority.

    Additionally, regarding changes in CDMA 800 digital roaming priority,
    for any given roaming SID, prioritization of ACQ INDEX 37 over ACQ
    INDEX 4 will indicate prioritization of CDMA 800 over AMPS.

    Below are relevant portions of the Acquisition Table from PRL 10023
    followed by a brief set of primers from my empirical deductions.

    INDEX ACQ TYPE CH1
    4 1 Both
    27 1 A
    28 1 B

    ACQ TYPE 1 is AMPS. As such, only ACQ INDEX 4, 27, or 28 will
    prioritize AMPS. Search for AMPS ACCs will be confined to the
    Cellular A-side (313-333), B-side (334-354), or both.

    INDEX ACQ TYPE CH1
    35 4 A
    36 4 B
    37 4 Both

    ACQ TYPE 4 is CDMA 800. Thus, only ACQ INDEX 35, 36, or 37 will
    prioritize CDMA 800. Search for CDMA 800 carrier channels will be
    confined to the A-side (CEL 283 & CEL 691), B-side (CEL 384 & CEL
    777), or both.

    INDEX ACQ TYPE CH1
    29 5 A
    30 5 B
    31 5 C
    32 5 D
    33 5 E
    34 5 F

    ACQ TYPE 5 is CDMA 1900. As one of two such types, ACQ INDEX 29, 30,
    31, 32, 33, or 34 will prioritize CDMA 1900. Search for CDMA 1900
    carrier channels will be confined the valid default ARFCN center
    frequencies w/in the specified PCS A, B, C, D, E, or F license.

    INDEX ACQ TYPE CH1 CH2 CH3 CH4
    1 6 575 625 500 425

    ACQ TYPE 6 is also CDMA 1900. ACQ TYPE 6 is the other type that will
    prioritize CDMA 1900. All native Sprint PCS SIDs will be ACQ TYPE 6
    in the PRL. Reproduced above is but one example, as ACQ TYPE 6 is
    also the most varied, accounting for fully 34 of the 46 different ACQ
    INDEX possibilities. Search for CDMA 1900 carrier channels will be
    confined to the ARFCN center frequencies listed.

    Thanks, Keith!

    Much to my surprise -- not to mention my chagrin -- Qwest Wireless SIDs
    are still designated negative:

    Not only F&CA phones. Mine isn't. I've always had to talk to a rep to
    get my account flagged for a PRL update. This time it was automatic.
