Ok...let's put the final squash on this faster speeds nonsense. I've broken down the PRL's into layman's terms.

First of lets look at what is different between 60678 and 01115.

The only differences is, two Verizon Wireless systems (SID 340 & 4138) in Florida allow 3G roaming. That's it!! If you don't plan on going to north Florida and using roaming then who cares if you have 60678 or 01115.

Now let's take the difference between 60676 and 60678. But but what about 60677?? They rolled back 60677 people to 60676 so we won't be looking at that.

60676 to 60678 Changes:

SID 4188 Sprint Spokane WA area - changed to allow EVDO access (there are probably other entries for 4188 allowing EVDO already)

SID 5238 Montana PCS Alliance A M - ABERDEEN SD- EVDO changed to: Disabled - 1X only while on this SID now

SID/NID 1124/65535 Alltel - FLORIDA 09 CALHOUN - Priority moved down

SID 21 Verizon Great Lakes Detroit MI - changed to prefer the the Cellular band over the PCS band for 1X data/voice (added 3 more PCS channels to scan for 1X)

SID/NID 244/65535 Alltel - GRAND RAPIDS MI - priority moved up

SID/NID 1914/65535 United States Cellular - ILLINOIS 04 ADAMS - priority moved up

SID/NID 20/65535 Verizon Wireless - CHICAGO IL - added 2 more 1X channels to scan

SID/NID 32/65535 Verizon Wireless - WHEELING WV - added 2 more 1X channels to scan

SID/NID 1412/65535 Verizon Wireless - MISSOURI 09 BATES - added 2 more 1X channels to scan

SID/NID 1510/65535 Verizon Wireless - JAMESTOWN NY - priority moved up

SID/NID 100/65535 Alltel - FAYETTEVILLE NC- EVDO changed to: Scan Sprint EV first, then scan for Alltel(VZW) 3G

SID/NID 8190/65535 - International - add 1 channel to 1X scan

SID/NID 9649/65535 - International - add 1 channel to 1X scan

Removed the following SID/NID combinations from Roaming Lists:
Note: There might be more than one entry for these SIDs in the PRL (check the full SID analysis for further info)

SID/NID 4188/1 Sprint PCS - Spokane Billings WA Removed.
SID/NID 4188/2 Sprint PCS - Spokane Billings WA Removed.
SID/NID 4509/65535 Cricket Communications - Fayetteville AR Removed.
SID/NID 4535/65535 Cricket Communications - Ft Smith AR Removed.
SID/NID 4509/65535 Cricket Communications - Fayetteville AR Removed.
SID/NID 4535/65535 Cricket Communications - Ft Smith AR Removed.
SID/NID 4815/65535 Metro PCS - Miami FL Removed.
SID/NID 5109/65535 NextWave Telecom - Tampa FL Removed.

Adds
SID/NID 4188/1441 Sprint PCS - Spokane Billings WA - 1X only scans - no 3G
SID/NID 1029/65535 Alltel - ARIZONA 04 YUMA - 1X only scans - no 3G
SID/NID 4138/65535 Verizon Wireless - Jacksonville FL - 1X only scans - no 3G
SID/NID 1751/65535 Verizon Wireless - VIRGINIA 02 MARION - scan for Sprint EV only - fall back to 1X on VZW
SID/NID 1522/1 CAROLINA WEST WIRELESS - NORTH CAROLINA 03 ASHE - Does not show as roaming on handsets and includes 3G speeds
SID/NID 25100/65535 International Roaming - includes 3G speeds

Now do you notice how there are not any entries of Sprint adding additional EVDO channels to the scans for SIDs? What does that mean? That if you have 60676 on one phone and 60678 on another and you are not in any of the systems above that have 3G roaming now. You will connect to the same exact towers with the same exact speeds!
