    The PRL should in no way effect the touchscreen. Try flashing a different rom. If a rom changes fixes it, then your system files or kernel are the problem. Try doing a fresh install.

    Another cause could be the moving itself. Changing climates/humidity changes can cause moisture to form inside electronics. If the problem will not go away no matter what you flash, you may have damaged something inside the phone.

    These are my best guesses as to the issue.

    Default Re: PRL Swap for the V on VM (latest PRL for Sprint Towers).

    Just had a question. Is it possible for different PRL's to effect your TWS (time without signal) percentage? I am currently using the 01120 PRL and my TWS is like 70-90%. Now I don't know if that's a bad thing but from research I'd say it was. This PRL has been working fine for me and all 3G connectivity works but just curious if maybe I should try different PRL's or go back to the stock one to lower this TWS issue. I do not want my battery draining from this. Thanks.

    Yes, it can effect your tws. A new PRL may locate a new tower to connect to.
    Hunting for a signal uses more power than just staying connected, so yes, 90% is bad.

    It seems like the problem only happens when connected via USB and debug mode is on. Once disconnected it works fine. I've never noticed it do this before though.

    While reading this thread, I came upon the link for checking your MSL code on Virgin Mobile site. The last post I read about it stated it didn't work anymore. I just tried it out and it worked fine for me.

    First sign on to your VM account. Then type in the following:
    https://www1.virginmobileusa.com/myaccount/home.dosdf

    It did give me an ERROR 404, but it listed all kinds of info and in there was the MSL number (six digits).

    Ok so I am using the PRL: 60680, seeing better results for the last 40mins.

    I am wondering if this is the newest PRL, if there is a better PRL, and what towers do 60680 use.

    It seems the signal bar doesn't show 3g level. I set the network in evdo only then the signal level would stay in -120 but the signal bar is changing.

    this page gives a different way to get the msl. same procedure, different technique. look at number 2

    Looks like it stopped working again. It was working when I previously tried 4 days ago.

    I went from 61007 to 60680 tonight. Open Signal Maps showed connecting to the same tower as always, yet Speedtest app went from 100ms ping 500kbps/200kbps right before the PRL swap to 140ms 2200kbps/400kbps right after. I did multiple speedtests to the same server to make sure there weren't any anomalies (not uncommon). I've gotten 2000kbps+ in the past at non-peak hours with 61007, but not lately.

    Is Open Signal Maps known to be inaccurate in identifying the tower to which the phone is connecting? If not, then I guess I have to chalk it up to another speedtest variation over a short period of time. A PRL swap shouldn't make any difference in speed unless I'm connecting to a different tower.

    Ok, I am certainly NOT computer illiterate, but a lot doesn't make any sense here. When I go to device manager I don't get a list of connected devices. Apparently you all aren't using XP. This wasn't made to use with XP I guess. I was able to get all the necessary codes, etc. for my phone, but I guess windows 7 has to be used for the rest. I give up.

    Nevermind. Finally got it. Just being difficult as usual for an old machine.

    Not a huge change here. still a poor connection no matter the .prl I use. I'm not in a great reception area at home. A work there are 5 towers less than a mile away. Using 60680.
