Verizon wireless updating towers
they could have it do a quick update at 3am once a month or something.the problem now, is that when you do *228 and update your PRL, your phone resets.it never used to do that with the older phones Unless I am mistaken, *22899 actually activates/programs your phone (part of this process is pulling the most current PRL).and is a one step way of doing *228 and selecting 1 to activate. I can believe that re-activating your phone doesn't cause any problems, but i'm still not doing it on my phone ;)I do a *228 every time I happen to think of it.I call VZW the first thing they ask is "When did you last update your phone?
I have absolutely no service on my phone right now. The carrier settings include updates to Access Point Names (APNs), MMS Settings, features such as tethering and default apps such as Stocks, Maps, and Weather.
", then they try to get you off the phone as quick as they can.
It seems to be their band-aid and a kiss solution to get you to leave them alone......
