    PRL versions - *228 vs. *22890

    (a side-topic that recently appeared in "I am now a PP dealer!")

    Any advantage to the larger PRL version?

    I know in my area *22890 and *22891 don't work. I had to use *228 to program my phone.

    It isn't typically a geographic issue - it usually depends on the handset. *228 is Verizon's retail OTA programming sequence transfers a data package that is sometimes too large for older phones to process successfully. *22890/91 are Verizon wholesale sequences involving smaller data packages. You may even find that you have to use *22800 for some handsets.
    Is This Thing On??

    When I had Amp'd the longer programing sequence didn't work, tech support had to talk me through manual programing my e816. When I got Page Plus the longer sequence didn't work either and PP tech support had me use *228 which worked.

    Would you explain the retail/wholesale distinction in regards to OTA?

    And is there any advantage to using *228, if *22890/91 or *22800 also works?

    I found out for some reason I can not use *228 option 1 or option 2.

    Here are some other codes
    *22880 = *228 option 1
    *22890 = *228 option 1 (I think this forces it)
    *22891 = *228 option 2 (I think this forces it)
    *22899 = *228 option 1 (I think this forces it)

    I thought *22800 reset the phone back to either no prl or an older prl.
