    They did some recent tweaking... according to a HowardForums post, an update came out on 5/14 - I did the *228 and mine went from 52707 to 52686

    Also got a Carrier Settings update earlier this week when I plugged my phone into the computer - iTunes served it up.

    Just did *228 for grins and now have 52809 - go figure.
    Check this out. I'm currently in Winston Salem, NC and I attached my iPhone to my MacBook to create a local backup and iTunes alerted me to a carrier update, however, my MacBook was not connected to the Internet at the time.

    Hmmm...ok strange, lol.

    As for the Carrier Settings update, I recd mine, hmm.... I'd have to guess its been about 2, maybe even 3 wks now & I did it right from my phone when it popped up.

    Well, when you think about it, we're in all different parts of the USA, so different areas are going to get updates & tweaks at separate times, so, in reality it makes sense. I also can add that I recd an email about 3 days ago notifying us that there were more LTE areas added, and one wasn't too far off from where I live--perhaps that's the difference in our prl's also...?? Idk just a guess on that.

    Odd... perhaps the connecting physically to iTunes triggered it to install OTA...

    From what I know about PRLs... they are tied to what rate plan folks are on... and if you have a plan that's grandfathered/no longer current - a PRL version may be different than that for current plans.

    Perhaps, but hey, as long as my device is working as it should, I'm content.

    Ooooh. Ok, I was not aware of that with the PRLs. Makes sense then, because yes, I'm on a g'fathered unltd data plan

    Thanks for the clarification Keith!!

    Ok, idk about you guys...I updated the PRL this morning and got 52811 lol.
    Ok, really strange. I did a *228 yesterday late afternoon, and going from what i previously posted up here ^, it now shows me at 52793 I thought that was very strange to go 'back' in numeric PRL code....so this morning i did it again and got the same result of 52793.

    has anyone else every noticed a 'step back' number wise in PRL updates? I mean my phone is working just fine with signal etc. - i just thought it was odd lol.

    as did mine. Don't be overly concerned if your version number is slightly different from what others see... as long as it's higher than what you had before... The oddity recently was an update, then a backtrack, and now this update for me. We'll see how it goes...
