What is a Preferred Roaming List (PRL) and how do I update it on my phone?
This is a list of our Roaming Partners that is stored on the Cricket phone. This listing provides the ability to roam onto the Roaming Partners' networks. This list can change over time, so it is important to dial *228 (and then press “Send”) from your Cricket phone prior to entering a Roaming Coverage area. This will ensure that you have the most up–to-date Preferred Roaming List provisioned on your phone.
To update your PRL complete the following before entering a Roaming Coverage area:
1. Dial *228 from the Cricket phone
2. Press SEND
3. Follow to the prompts given to complete the update
This process should take approximately one minute to complete.
