    New PRLs for Alltel (ATNI) Accounts *major changes, back to Sprint!*

    The new PRL 21008 / 31008 prefers Sprint over Verizon in many areas.
    This was released just after Memorial Day (Update from 21007 / 31007).

    I wonder why they wanted to change it back to Sprint?
    Maybe because no other carrier will prefer Sprint anymore and Sprint is too desperate. :p

    I really think they should've stayed with the Verizon network as most preferred.
    I literally think it is a step backward (pun intended...lol).
    No worries tho, my phone's NAM1 settings still have PRL 21007
    and it's still forced on the Verizon network nonstop anyway.

    My phone's NAM2 settings are for Alltel and that has the new PRL 21008,
    but I'll almost never use that unless I'm too bored, lol.

    Since about late 2008, around the time Verizon was to acquire the majority of Alltel,
    Verizon became the most preferred roamer in the PRL for all divested and non-divested customers.

    I've studied and compared the old & new PRL files using QPST,
    and it appears now nearly every Sprint SID has been opened with no restriction.
    Thoough all of verizon's SIDs are also still on the list, most with no restriction.

    I attached the old and new PRLs in a single ZIP file.
    31007 is the old one, released late 2010 that prefers Verizon,
    while 21008 & 31008 are the new ones which prefer Sprint. :cool:

    This represents a departure from the Alltel properties that were kept by Verizon. My PRL on my phone was updated to 20066.
