Network is updating your prl
A Sprint user who desires to update his network settings can enhance the quality of his cell phone signal, lessen the number of calls he drops and experience fewer problems with his online connection.A network update also assists you to place a call when your phone roams off your network.So my question/problem is I am not able to register to the network unless I send the ATD*299 to get the updated PRL settings.And once I reset the modem by power or by command, I cannot register to the network until I again send the ATD*299 command.Push “Settings” and then “Menu” on your Sprint phone.
Wait until you hear the message that acknowledges that you have successfully updated your phone’s PRL, before you end the call.
Restart your phone to allow the changes to take effect.

If you know how to use the handset on your Sprint device, you can update its network settings via your preferred roaming list (PRL).
This process varies depending on the model of Sprint phone you own.If you own a CDMA version of the i Phone, you can update your roaming capabilities by dialing a number from your phone directly, which can increase your battery life while roaming, allow your i Phone to connect to additional roaming networks and decrease the amount of blocked and dropped calls.
