For more information on what is included in a carrier settings update, contact your carrier.

When a carrier setting update is available, you will be prompted to install it.

Regularly updating the Preferred Roaming List (PRL) is advised if you use your phone outside of Sprint's home area frequently, especially if you use your phone in multiple different areas.

This allows the phone to choose the best roaming carriers, particularly roaming partners rather than non-affiliated carriers, and may improve your roaming network coverage.

Verizon and Sprint use what is called a CDMA network.

While using a CDMA network, there are times when a user has to manually update their PRL, or Preferred Roaming List.

Updating the PRL locates the nearest cell phone tower in your area that can provide you with the best signal to make calls and send and receive data.

You will hear music to confirm that the new PRL is downloading.

Call customer service and get approved for a PRL update if you are using Sprint.
