    Default New (old) PRL being sent! 3G speed fixed!

    I just did a PRL update as I have been doing several times a day for the last few days, and wouldn't you know it, my PRL just reverted "BACK" to 21081 and I have my 3G back! My phone was on 50580. Using the "Netmonitor" app it now shows I am on the EvDo rev.A network again. Just ran a speed test and I went from the crappy speed of only .13Mbps download to now getting 1.19Mbps. I can only guess Sprint has been reading about this problem here on Android Central:-)

    I hear you! As we say here "down South," If it ain't broke, don't fix it!

    Did you try doing a hands free reactivation? I did that when I reverted to the 21081 PRL. This appears to have helped others so you may try that. The instructions are here:

    Not picking up 3G?

    Do a profile update and restart the phone and you should be good

    I can vouch for this... PRL went back to 21081 and my E3D is back to normal

    How do you check if your phone is on EvDo rev.A or not?
