I'm not sure it's kinda confusing, but some ppl I know said they did it worked for them so thought I'd share
Any one trying these make sure you choose the Verizon one not Sprint.

Looks confusing. I'm sure if it catches on it may become simpler? Lol or illegal.

I thought the GS3 updated PRLs by itself, thats why you cant do *228 to activate.

If you look it's**228 to revert back.but yes Verizon did tell me that doesn't work instead pull the battery to update it...weird.but this method is different I suggest if your're new to this give it time for a easier one just to be safe.

Nothing new about this. People have been modding and swapping prls for over a decade. I used a Verizon PRL on my Sprint phone so I could roam and use a lot of data so Sprint would terminate my contract without an ETF. You use to be able load PRLs just by dialing ##PRL#. It's harmless, give it try, you aren't going to see a huge difference but if it works for you great.
