Just had a new PRL pushed to my phone 5 minutes ago. I didn't hit update, it pushed on its own. I went from getting .06-.13mbps to 1.3-1.6 mbps down. Anyone else experience this?

Apparently it was a network-wide push. There's a couple of threads over on XDA on the subject. According to some of the folks over there, the PRL in and of itself doesn't affect data speed. But there are people reporting improved speeds immediately after the push. Hmmmm...

I haven't been able to check yet for myself because I'm not in a location where I've done a speed test before, so I have nothing to check against.

I didn't get a push, but went and did an update and got 25004. Download speed didn't seem to change (still around 1Mb), but upload improved significantly, it is up to about 500k.

Had been concerned about that since it was running much slower, and picture uploads were taking forever.

Yes we know, but this was all of the reviewers main beef with it.At least with decent 3g speeds this phone is more usable than the reviewers had it to be.

I don't get it. I thought PRL stands for Prefered Roaming List.
Why would that improve speeds?

PRL will not improve speeds. What it does is tell your phone where towers are and which ones it should connect to. The only way getting a new PRL will increase your speed is if there is a new tower that is closer to you, or more powerful than your previous PRL indicated.
