Updating verizon roaming codes
If your phone’s PRL is up to date, your phone will be in the best possible position for roaming networks.
A Hands Free Activation encompasses both a Profile and a PRL update, as well as a Firmware check on most phones.
If you don't have an LTE device then each of these updates requires a cellular data connection.
As a result, you won’t be able to update your phone’s Profile, PRL, or complete a Hands Free Activation if you’re in a poor coverage area or are roaming, have disabled network data on either your phone or from your online Ting account, or if you’re connected to Wi-Fi.

Hands free activation, profile and PRL updates are the most common forms of over-the-air update, and all of these updates are initiated from your phone with either a restart or by selecting the appropriate option in the settings menu.
A profile update synchronizes your phone with the network by updating its network access info.
Many operators provide the ability for the user to download the latest PRL to their device by dialing an Over-the-air (OTA) feature code.
In the US, for Verizon / Metro PCS / US Cellular, this feature code is *228 (*ACT).
