Earlier this week I learned that my PRL 40450 was out of date. Took a trip today and stopped with 5 bars on a native Sprint tower and tried to update it. Got an error message telling me to contact my vendor. Error might have been 5306, not sure and I didn't have a pencil.
Cycled power on the phone and tried again. This time, and again on the return trip, I got a message telling me no updates were available. The PRL is still 40450.
On the trip, where I normally roam reliably on Verizon, phone switched from several bars to no bars. Attempts to call out were unsuccessful. Several incoming calls relating to a family emergency were unsuccessful.
At my destination I returned calls using WiFi and it was nice being able to do that.
What's with the PRL? Is mine now corrupt? If I need 40452 why is it telling me no updates are available?
Sprint tower I was communicating with is located in Detroit Lakes, MN.
