I've only ever read about people getting cease letters for excessive voice roaming.
I'm not the type to tell you to do or not do something. Just correcting a statement that was made earlier.
Everyone makes their own judgment call what they would like to do. They should however have the correct information.

long time androidcentral reader, first post. rooted running thunderom VD baseband
I am very confused on what this does. I had heard that with sprint, roaming uses the VZW towers which are much better and stronger in most areas.
I have the everything data with any mobile anytime plan. it says roaming is free, but when roaming, any call counts against your 1500/3000 minutes, even if they are calls to mobile numbers. I do not know what the situation with data roaming is, someone please inform me.
What does this PRL update do? i would love to have the reliability of VZW towers over sprints if the minutes did not go against my 1500. I wouldnt be going over the 800 roaming maximum, but i just wouldnt want any of my minutes used.
would this PRL update let me use VZW towers while still having unlimited mobile to mobile minutes? also, i use data and texting more than calls, so is this is only worth it assuming that VZW's 3G data is better than sprints, which im assuming it is.
Thanks very much

w/r/t data, you are going to need to experiment. The roaming agreements Sprint has are different for various regions. You might not get 3g data at all, even if Sprint has data in a particular area, if VZN is listed higher in that area's PRL entry than Sprint and there is no 3g roaming agreement there.

If there was a clear explanation from sprint i would like to see it. experimenting with vzw's data in my area would have been nice. until then, i'll wait to flash.

You aren't charged anything for data roaming. They give you a 300mb limit in your ToS, after which they spell out in their contract their only option is to warn you or terminate you. However I've only ever seen people get letters for multiple months of going over the 800min voice limit and OP has done multiple GB roaming data and hasn't seen anything. As mentioned in previous posts, unlimited mobile 2 mobile is not valid while roaming, so that uses your base minutes and you might see overages through that route. That rate is pointed out in your contract.

I'm not sure if there is a easy way to know besides trying them all.
I have however found some other PRL's that have improved my speed and service near my work by ohare airport
[6/16]*techknowfile's* - Hack the HTC EVO - 3G w/o Sprint EVDO coverage! - xda-developers
I'm getting 1-1.2 down constant now using 00001, 31337 or 01337 as opposed to the official prl's I been getting spotty services going 1x..missing calls left and right. Since I switched to the prls listed in that thread constant 3g and cell service full bars or only missing one.

40065 is working quite well up here in the Pacific NW (Washington) area - but may also work elsewhere.
It's sort of a hit/miss type deal unless someone else in the forums lives very close
to your geographical location and has already done the testing and reported results.
I believe I tried maybe 4 or 5 different PRL's before sticking with 40065
