I'm using it and haven't experience any issues.
If you really need total compatibility you can always get the USA unlocked version.
Which I'm pretty sure will have the bands your looking for.

Then make a choice you want VoLTE or you want a phone that will get latest patch as soon as it comes.
You will also not get all features (VoLTE, etc) if you purchase a non Rogers branded phone.

I'm using SM-G930F w/ latest July 1 patch.

I have the G935U (American unlocked version) and it's only sitting on the May security patch...carrier features such as voLTE and voWIFI aren't working with Rogers since it is not a Rogers IMEI.

To each his own. For me latest OS updates are important. As long as I can make calls, send txt and download is fast I don't care much bout voLTE.

I flashed only the AP file first, but had some wierd issues after, so I flashed again with all of them.
*WARNING* It will most likely wipe your phone when you flash the CSC file, because it may detect the Rogers CSC vs the CSC for the carrier the download is actually for. CSC change = wipe.
The software is multiCSC (the exact same for every carrier in Canada), but the CSC is set for each carrier's version. It will switch to the Rogers CSC after boot (based off what SIM card is in the phone).
You can flash everything but the CSC first if you like. If everything works, then you're good. If not, then flash the CSC file seperately after. Back up first, just in case. (it wiped mine).
Changes so far: The phone is smoother, overall. No more stutters (for me).
Camera image quality seems to be better. Appears to be less oversharpening.
Wifi Calling WORKS!!!!!

@Bcsc try default_password
The same thing happened to me and after about an hour of looking online I found that problem.
Also I flashed the AP, BL, CP and Home_CSC files. Originally I skipped the CSC but VoLTE and VoWIFI were not working. Home_CSC will not wipe your data whereas the regular CSC file will. If after booting up it asks you for a password and none of your passwords work try "default_password". Got really tired of waiting for Rogers to release the update that all other Canadian carriers have already released. If the S6 is any indiciation ROGERS will take months to release the exact same update.
Got WIFI calling up and running! Seems to be running smoother as well so far. No idea what on earth Rogers is waiting on.
