2. You need to install a BlackBerry OS file that is specific to your device. The original version, as supplied by the carrier, is the safe choice, but you can use any model specific version. This is not supplied on your BlackBerry CD, Ref: 3 links to BlackBerry's download pages.

3. Once the OS has been installed, you have to prepare it for the device.

Select Start / Computer and select the Drive C: Icon.

Open Program Files / Common Files / Research in Motion / AppLoader.

Navigate to the bottom and delete the file Vendor.XML file.

4. You are now ready to restore your device. Verify that BlackBerry Desktop Manager is NOT running. Plug the device directly into the computer's USB port.

We are about to venture into the bowls of the beast. Windows is not suitable for this job, we are going to invoke the Command line interface with an option switch.

Problem with only receiving intermittent notification of SMS messages, even from the same mobile


It is probably not your phone but your carrier. Contact them and complain!!

Sometime updating the "roaming feature" will help.

Here is the info for Verizon, but many other carriers are similar:

Hope this helps. J

Updating Preferred Roaming List(PRL)


Verizon Wireless is constantly advancing its roaming technology to provide you with superior roaming capabilities. By updating your PRL every few weeks, you can be sure you have access to our enhancements. As a result you may experience:
  • Longer battery life
  • Fewer dropped or blocked calls
  • Clear, crisp connections in more areas across the United States
  • Ability to connect to the digital network in more parts of the country

Instructions for updating your PRL:

  1. Power on your phone within any Verizon Wireless digital service area.
  2. Dial *228 and then press SEND (this call is airtime free).
  3. When prompted, press option 2 to update your phone's roaming capabilities
    (the update may take up to 2 minutes).
  4. Once completed, a confirmation message will appear to inform you that your phone has been re-programmed with the new PRL.

Fix error code 6305 on prl or profile update


I was getting error code 6305 when ever I attempted to update my profile or PRL. I turned on my wifi and the problem went away. So, I'm assuming that I got the error because the cell phone signal was too week.

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


Hi,

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.

Lost the manual need to reprogram the phone


  • Have you ever received a phone from a relative, friend or just upgraded to a new phone and don't have the time or patience to call into a call center for support with activating the device or updating the PRL (Preferred Roaming List)? We all know the hold times can be long, the representatives may not be as helpful as we would like them to be or of course the wrong line gets changed causing a previously working phone to stop working (we all love that). And of course a simple 5-10 minute call has now turned into a 30 minute call (as if you had no plans to go to dinner or watch some T.V.). Well here are steps you can follow to program, update your PRL or process an ESN change with your new or new to you VZW (Verizon Wireless) phone. If the device you acquired is brand new or new to you and the ESN (Electronic Serial Number) has not been changed on the MDN (your phone number) you simply need to power off the old phone and on the new phone dial *228 and select option 3 when prompted. This option processes the ESN change automatically, programs the number into the phone and updates the PRL.

  • 2

    If the ESN change has already been processed you simply need to dial *228 and select option 1 to program your phone.

  • 3

    Lastly if you just need to update the PRL then dial *228 and select option 2. The PRL (Preferred Roaming List) update will ensure your phone is roaming on the tower that provides the best signal, potentially enhancing your service.

    That's it! You are now ready to use your new phone!
