    Hi,
    My girlfriend and I are using motorola v120e phones and we share 2400 minuts
    and we get unlimited nw minuts. Problem is we are unable to get a prl update
    as we are on the extended network. Worse yet we use a substandarsd carier
    cellular1. My phone should be roamingg on the sprintpcs network not
    cellular1. I tried *22807 but all it does is dial it then disconnect then it
    beaps once. My girlfriend and I are both blind so we can not see the screan.
    Any suggestions on how we can stop our phones from using cellular1 would be
    highly appreciated .

    Try dialing *228 when you are in a home network area or *22800 if that
    doesnt work. This will help to extend your national home footprint and
    keep you on the VZW as much as possible.

    3600 planes with transponders are burning 8-10 million
    gallons of kerosene per hour over the USA. R-12 car air
    conditioners are responsible for the ozone hole, right?

    You must do PRL updates in a Verizon area. You can't do it when you're
    on an Extended Network partner.

    I updated my v120e on Wednesday, but of course I did it in a verizon
    area.

    its not that important you do a PRL update immediately. Wait until you
    go home for Thanksgiving!

    Should be? Or you want it to? Verizon may just not be the best
    carrier for the area you're in.

    Take the phones into a Verizon store (if there is one near you) and
    have them update the PRL. If there's no store you can get to, you'll
    just have to wait until you get to Verizon country. Or ship the
    phones to someone who is in Verizon territory, have them update the
    PRLs and ship the phones back.
