Why is that?

I ran a nationwide network of digital signage systems with about 500 of 
them being 3g (mix of Sprint and Verizon). Worked really well, except 
for the PRL updates. For some reason the AT command set to do the update 
didn't work. Never did get that figured out (was pulled off that project 
to come up with a way to convert the systems from Fedora to Debian 
without rolling a tech. I did get that project done. It was awesome). 
Now that startup is pretty much defunct. Hmmm... that's an idea for 
another thread (management of boxes that aren't in a colo).
