    *STICKY* Official Cricket PRL Thread

    PRLs - Preferred Roaming List

    *NOTE* - These are NATIONWIDE PRLs. Some areas are given certain PRLs and this is why we list the location. If we do not list your location, then start testing. This is the only tried a true method to get the best results. Test, test, and test. If you have a PRL, submit it so that everyone else can try it as well. SHARE!

    PRL Discussion by City:

    Chicago - Chicago, IL and Flashed Phones (Observation)
    Houston - http://www.cricketusers.com/flashing...n-tx-prls.html

    Newest:




    Test/Experimental Hybrid: These PRLs have been custom made and we're looking for people to test them and post results. So far so good. They seem to work well in AWS areas in particular. Note that you won't be able to dial *228 most likely or do any forwarding while on that PRL. Flash over another PRL to do that and then switch. You don't need to use *228 for flashed phones anyways.

    In addition, you might need to set your phone on home only and not roaming. This should keep it on Cricket/Sprint vs Verizon!




    Generic PRL:
    Cricket has identified markets where people are unexpectedly roaming. To combat this they have developed some generic preferred roaming lists (PRLs) to provide initial access to Cricket in most areas.

    Once the generic PRLs are loaded into a handset, you must dial *228 <send> to access market specific Cricket PRLs that will provide the appropriate roaming partner access for your customersí market, ensuring optimum coverage.

    Below are the two generic PRLs: ∑ CRK_PCS0R_10900_SPECIAL_07252011.prl (for PCS only handsets) ∑ GREY_MVNO_4637.prl (for tri-band handsets) The PRL number is embedded in the title of each file name (10900 and 4637). PRL 10900 is designed for PCS phones that do not have AWS capability. All Sprint handsets fall into this category. PRL 4637 is designed for tri-band phones that provide PCS and AWS capability. Please do not flash the 4637 PRL on PCS-only handsets. Please feel free to use the attached Cricket generic PRL for customers who want to switch to Cricket and retain their original handset.

    Access to the latest Cricket generic PRLs, and over-the-air loading of market specific PRLs via *228 makes PRL management simple. Customers receive the appropriate roaming partner access for their market, ensuring optimum coverage.


    In order to start utilizing Cricketís generic PRLs follow these steps below:

    1. Save the attached Cricket generic PRLs to local hard drive.
    2. Load appropriate PRL onto to customerís handset
    a. 10900 is for PCS only handsets that do not have AWS capability
    b. 4637 is for tri-band handsets capable of PCS and AWS access
    3. Dial *228 to access market specific Cricket PRLs. You must be in a Cricket network coverage area for *228 to work


    CRK_PCS0R_10900_SPECIAL_07252011.prl

    GREY_MVNO_4637.prl

    Older:



    Unknown age: 42600

    Oldest: I have included these because some people still search for them.

    ROAMNAT4399_PCS-EvDO.prl, ROAMNAT4499_AWS-EvDO.prl, CRKTNAT6299_AWS-1x.prl, CRKTNAT6499_AWS-EvDO.prl, CRKTNAT6399_PCS-EvDO.prl, CRKTNAT6199_PCS-1x.prl, ROAMNAT4199_PCS-1x.prl, ROAMNAT4299_AWS-1x.prl, EV Tri 42100.prl, 1X Tri 22100.prl

    These aren't to be opened really with anything unless you want to look at them for S&G. Then you can use the RL editor that comes with QPST.

    They are meant to be put on your computer and then loaded to the phone (CDMA WS, QPST, etc).

    I had a question. I have a flashed Evo 4G and everything works, but I am getting error 67/131 whenever i toggle wifi or 3g, and at some other random times. From what I have read on this forum its a fairly simple matter of editing my authentication method on the m.ip tab with QPST. Does that mean that I have to completely reflash my phone or can that setting alone be altered? If I have to reflash my phone (hope I don't brick the thing!!) is there a way to save the PRL settings I have now, seeing as I KNOW they work? Thanks in advance for the help!!

    Chances are because you have simp + mob instead of just simple in QPST.

    Chances are I would have to do a full reflash, that I can edit it without a full reflash, or that I can save my current PRL settings somehow? Thanks for the response.

    No need to re-do the flash, it's just a toggle in QPST. Read from phone, go to the "M.IP" tab, change "Mobile IP Behavior" to "Simple", write to phone.
    Have you used QPST before? If not, there is some setup involved

    EDIT: Got it to work using methods from 4 different forums, why it worked, i have no idea, but it did. I went in to QPSD and he had all kinds of settings different from what Chris had, so I changed them. When I tried to change the password to cricket on the um and AM tabs and check the Optimized Dominant Handoff and the 1x EVDO->1x setting and write to phone it gave me some sort of READ ONLY error. Those are the only things I could see that were not changed. Of course it is 3:30 am here and everything on the screen is starting to blur, so I may be wrong. But I digress; net works (3G and wifi), text works (woke up my wife, woops!) market works, hotspot works and calls work without any 67/131 errors so I'm gonna call it a success and go pass out. Thanks for the help.


    No, I have not. I dl the diag zip from the flashing tutorial, but beyond that I'm not sure what to do. :/ I've been reading the qpst tutorial but I'm pretty sure I'm doing it wrong. Do I still update the drivers to the sdk adb drivers or the dia drivers I dled from the bottom of the post:

    http://www.cricketusers.com/sprint-h...-internet.html

    I havent tried using the adb drivers because in the post it states my phone will be rooted and I dont want to do that because it would wipe my flash. If you can help with a few instructions I would REALLY appreciate it. Thanks.

    The EVO does return some errors in QPST sometimes which don't hinder anything. You can disable the NV functionality within the program, but I just ignore the errors.

    The other Chris is right, I get 3 or 4 error messages from QPST when I write to my EVO, ignore, and move on, it all seems to work out

    I'd suggest going back in to QPST, reading from the phone again, and see if the setting stuck before you get too worried about doing other stuff.

    To answer an older question of yours, yes, you can save your current settings via QPST with "Save to File" in the lower right. I've not used it to "load" the saved settings back in, but it should create 2 different files, one will be your PRL, other should be the QPST settings.
    If it's anything like mine though, the PRL won't dump out with the same type of name you see them posted as in this thread, it'll be something like: XXXXXXXX_sp.rl0, I'd suggest renaming it so it's easier to keep track of.

    When it comes to losing the flash, as long as you have something like clockwork recovery, or RA recovery loaded, you can always copy a new flash to your SD, and reflash it. I too was worried about losing the flash that the shop put on my phone, but got so annoied with all the Sprint bloatware that was left on there, I finally took the leap.

    Also, if you're using an EVO on Cricket, I'm 99.99999% sure it's already rooted.

    I've flashed my old htc hero to cricket and plan on giving it to my dad when he comes to visit. I am in san antonio and he lives in the valley. Has anyone used any of these prls in the valley? I want to make sure it works back home before i send him on a four hour drive with a phone that won't work properly. As always, thanks for the help.

    Isn't that a tri band area? Not sure it would work there. Zip code?

    78520/21 are the main zip codes in Brownsville. I was thinking about using the prl that the shop put in my evo, it seems to work here, but I don't have any plans on traveling to the Valley, so I can't test it there.
