Would it be possible to compile verizons prl into sprints prl, so it will connect to the best tower at any given time. I've been reading around at ppc geeks and they are taking about utilizing nam1 and nam2. Is there any easy way to swap nams? I just hope there's a way have a sprint prl with verizon evdo roaming. That would be a lot better than QPSTing every night before work.

so like a dummy I accepteed the ota update. I reverted back to V9 and then back to VC and rooted. I keep getting an error when updating prl. The Client fails to authenticate DM Server(48). Please try again later.
Any Ideas on how to fix this. I searched the forums, but couldn't find anything. Never happened until going back to V9. Thanks for your help

As part of reverting to V9, near the end around 99-100% it restores the NVRAM items. The phone is already rebooted and Android startup screen is up, but the LG Software Updater tool is still doing its thing. If you pull the plug before it is done, you can get corrupted NVRAM items. The LG Software Updater tool is not done until you see the word "complete" despite what it looks like on the phone. 100% does not mean complete, complete means complete. There are other things that might have caused the corrption, but this is one of them.
Usually the way to fix it is:
1) make sure you have stock V9 recovery installed (probably ok to use Zefies new recovery too, but use stock to be safe for now)
2) go into the dialer and press ##786# (I forget if you need to enter your MSL or not, but if you are using QPST, I assume you have your MSL)
3) do a factory reset from there
The difference with a ##786# reset vs a privacy->reset is the former will try and reset your NVRAM items back to default so that Hands Free Activation, Update PRL, and Update Profile can work.
If you aren't using Sprint for some reason, then ignore what I said, it doesn't apply to other carriers.

Would writing a PRL from Verizon, Cricket, Metro PCS or any other carriers that use CDMA hurt our phones? I've used almost all of the ones you have given us in your source link. I was just wondering if we could, and what kind positives and negatives do you see if we could just write the most current Verizon PRL to our phones? IMO verizon's 3G network is faster.

It could be possible.
I'm using 40065 on my phone, I'm in the Pacific Northwest, and I've found 40065
is the best PRL for me. HOWEVER there is an issue with phone service using it.
I found I HAVE to always dial the 10-digit phone #, not just the 7-digits,
even if I am in the same area code - because it will think I am using Verizon.
If I always dial the 10-digit, it keeps me on the Sprint network and no issue.
Only glitch I have seen, but using this PRL, I get way better signals wherever
I go during my daily commutes, etc.Soylent Green Is People!

Off-network Roaming: The primary use of your Device must be for domestic purposes within the Sprint-owned network. Domestic means use in the 50 United States and U.S. Territories (except Guam). Sprint reserves the right, without notice, to deny, terminate, modify, disconnect or suspend service if off-network usage in a month exceeds: (1) voice: 800 min. or a majority of minutes; or (2) data: 300 megabytes or a majority of kilobytes.
