    PRL Updates

    Is there any difference between updating your Preferred Roaming List (PRL) by dialing *228 vice *22890? Why are two different numbers used if we are getting the PagePlus/Verizon PRL regardless? Does one access the VZW postpaid PRL while the other is the VZW prepaid PRL?

    *228 option 2 and *22891 are the same thing.

    *228 option 1 and *22890 are the same thing.

    No difference

    Verizon's system recognizes you as a Page Plus customer, either way, and gives you the proper PRL.

    But, what's the difference between:

    *228 option 2 and *22891

    and

    *228 option 1 and *22890

    ??

    "OPTION 2" is for a PRL update. "OPTION 1" is to program the phone.

    EDIT: WOO HOO !!!!!!!!!!! Post #1000 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Heh Congrats on 1000 posts Micallen!!!

    There is no difference between *228 option 2 and *22891. Nor any difference between *228 option 1 and *22891.

    Just two different routes to get to the same destination.

    No difference in the PRL that is loaded.

    Thanks,
    Kitty

    Thanks to all for the info. I can always expect a quick response from the "senior" members with reliable information.

    Ah; but then what is *22890? Or was that a typo (refering to *22891 twice) on your part?

    1000-poster-McCallan answered my question about: the difference between *288 Option 1 vs *288 Option 2, or, conversely, the difference between *22890 vs *22891.

    One (*288 Option 1/*22890) is to program the phone;

    the other (*288 Option 2/*22891) is to update the PRL.

    Yes?

    Yes?

    But it is *228, not *288
