    A message received from UNKNOWN on my SPH-i300 PalmPhone tells me I can
    update my PRL with *2. The droids in Claire-land tell me the new Portland
    OR PRL is 10020 and the old PRL was was installed in April of this year,
    but have no other useful information.

    Should I tell my users to go ahead with this, or not?

    Your kind assistance and on-topic replies are appreciated.

    Thank you kindly.

    How widely travelled are they? PRL updates are generally harmless, and
    minimize costs if those users *do* roam with our partners. If the PRL isn't
    up to date, and they try to make a call, they may wind up in that provider's
    Customer Care department, being asked for a credit card, whereupon the
    carrier will charge pretty much whatever it wants.

    I received an update message on my Samsung N400 down the road here in
    here in Oregon City on Thursday, I did it, since then my phone has
    been screwed up bigtime! Analog-digital-PCS cycling, no service, lost
    book marks, changed home page, etc.etc. I just posted something to
    google alt.sprintpcs.com about it, if you're interested. (cerealtrader
    = ID)

    They are telling me nothing other than to go (once again) into the
    Sprint store, and let them try and figure it out...

    LMK how you get along, if you wouldn't mind..

    Now that I'm at work, I can let you know what the system tells me about
    10020:

    PRL Version- 10020
    Date added- 9/03/03
    History- Minor roaming changes in Washington, Oregon and Colorado.
    Digital changes to Colorado market for system acquisition enhancements.

    PRL Version- 10019
    Date added- 04/16/03
    History- Extensive roaming priority changes in continental US.
    Significant roaming cost savings realized with this PRL update.
