    Hopefully this Thread will get some Responces as the others dont seem to be doing much...

    To Change the PRL File on your Precedent you will first need to get your MSL heres where the fun begins, as you cannot simply get it under normal ways so here is the way to get your MSL

    goto the market and get alogcat this app will log everything then do the next step

    start alogcat, ##3282#, edit, put in random msl, back to alogcat filter using the phrase msl, msl was listed in green text

    after you have your MSL there is a GREAT IDIOTS GUIDE to Flashing PRLs Here Follow it step by step it does work i will include the prl file 22081 which i have found to work well

    you will need the samsung drivers which can be gotten here 32 bit Drivers

    and here 64 bit Drivers

    Please remember to Unzip the PRL before trying to flash it.. have a great day.

    You will also find the 22081 prl zip file on this post hope this helps and remember click like and thanks...

    Answers.

    1. a PRL (Preffered Roaming List)

    2. Flash is the like Burning a DISC only it puts it on the chip inside the phone not a disc.

    3. if you are running a 32 bit Operating System you will need the 32 bit software if you are running a 64 bit opeating system you will need the 64 bit

    Hope this helps

    They say your newly selected PRL may work one day and be useless the next. So I have 2 questions:
    1. Why not just use the UPDATE PRL button under Settings< About Phone< System Updates, to let your device select the best PRL?
    2. How are you to know which PRL to change over to? I live in eastern central Florida and have almost no signal at my house. I also find a lot of "dead areas" in and outside my area. What is the benefit of choosing the PRL myself?

    the prl update only under settings only gives you 10 -15 towers you can access a TRUE POSTPAID SPRINT PRL Gives you like 1000 Towers

    For More info on PRLS and flashing and such, goto PRL INFO IN FORUMS

    Your 32 and 64 bit driver links have been seized, PoorBoy. Any others you recommend?

    Dead stale thread, but the 32 bit driver (you'll need it for Windows XP) is at codegeekbbs.com/samsung.php along with another few useful files). Windows 7 seems to find the drivers itself.

    SBsuace, exactly what are you trying to accomplish? You're not going to get on towers the Sprint doesn't allow you to use by changing the PRL. That's urban legend.
