How to do a manual update prl for sprint evo 4g


There are 2 ways you can update your prl's for your sprint evo 4g phone. Both require that the phone is active on the Sprint network. The easiest way is to dial *2 on and hit send. This should bring up the Sprint Zone. The Sprint Zone will run a quick diagnostics on your phones voice and data to make sure it is working. If you scroll down the page on your phone you'll see a section titled "My Device", this section allows you to update your profile and prl's if there is an update available. This section will also show you if the voice and data passed or failed the tests. If you click on update profile of if you see a message that says new prl's are available, click on either one of those and that will update them for you.

The Second option is to do a manual update using the phone settings. From your home screen, push the menu button. Select "Settings". Scroll down and push "Update Phone". You will see an option "Update PRL's", push this and follow any instructions it gives you. Once the update is complete, you can return back to the home screen and use your phone as normal.

Blackberry 8330 unresponsive to push any buttons

you know the track ball was white when you first bought it right? the dirt and oil from peoples fingers dirty it up making it unresponsive. the silver plate around the ball pops out. when you get the ball out use an alcohol swab to clean it off. when its dry put it back in. also you should be able to get a replacement ball and plate from verizon. I know sprint usually carries them.

Samsung upstage wont turn on period. It is dead

I just had to buy a new phone because my Upstage had the same problem! But mine would stay on for not even 5 seconds before turning off and it would just repeat. So I went into the Sprint store and they gave me the Samsung Rant for 50 bucks even though my new for two wasn't up yet. They don't make Upstages anymore so just go get a new phone all together and see what happens :/ The Upstage is a horrible phone. Im sotrry this isn't much help. Trust me, I did my research before I decided to go into Sprint because I thought I didn't have the option to get a new phone so I was googling everything and anything I could think of to figure out what the heck was wrong with the stupid thing. Hopefully you'll be as lucky as I was.. Good luck!

Samsung upstage wont turn on

emann023 - Thank You So Much!
I put the battery wallet away a long time ago since it is so stupid looking. After seeing your post I went and tried it out, it still didn't work, but then I turned it on and immediately plugged it in and it's working!

The phone is still **** and broken, but now I can get my numbers out of it! Thank You So Much! I'm sure if I brought it to Sprint I would get the 'Sprint Shuffle' and no help whatsoever.
