Samsung Galaxy S5 Unlocked can't connect to Rogers Network
Just bought Samsung Galaxy S5 Unlocked sm-g900t model from canadacomputers. Registered to T-mobile.
Poped my sim card from my old nexus 4 in and had nothing but headaches ever since.
My nexus 4 had 3g connection to rogers.
Sim card is LTE ready.
Network Mode sees LTE/WCDMA/GSM and other modes. Tried all of them without any luck.
Access point is properly setup.
When trying to Registre to rogers network, it just sais unable to connect.
I don't have a data plan with rogers, could that be an issue? As someone with dissability simply have no use for data plan as im next to wifi 24/7.
Any help is highly welcome.
I don't have any data plan on my phone with rogers atm. So im wondering maybe that could be one of the issues?
Basicly nothing works when i insert my sim card into this new phone.
As soon as i insert my sim back into my unlocked Nexus 4, i get 3g connection, and can make calls etc.
I would add that if it's a brand new phone, it may be defective. I had that exact experience with a new unlocked phone I purchased on Black Friday. Signal would drop to nothing at random and it frequently displayed "SIM not found". Once I exchanged it, poof, no more problem.
So, I concur with the mod, it either wasn't unlocked like they said or the phone is defective. One way to check into it further is to go into the phone settings and ask it to search for a wireless network. If it can't even detect one you can probably be sure it's DOA.
I am planning to buy Elephone P9000 4G Smartphone that has followng network compaitable ; Please advise whether it will work with Rogers 4G LTE or not. I have identified Rogers Network (in Red) as follows ;
Connectivity: 2G, 3G HSPA+, FDD 4G/LTE
GSM: Band 2/3/5/8 (1900/1800/850/900MHz)
WCDMA: Band 1/2/5/8 (2100/1900/850/900MHz)
FDD-LTE: Band 1/3/7/8/20 (2100/1800/2600/900/800MHz)
TDD-LTE: Band 38/40
Where On FDD-LTE world wide:
Band 1: 2100 MHz
Band 2: 1900 MHz
Band 3: 1800 MHz
Band 4: 1700 MHz
Band 5: 850 MHz
Band 7: 2600 MHz
Band 8: 900 MHz
Bands 12,13,14,17: 700 MHz *
Band 20: 800 MHz
Band 28: 700 MHz
* = Be aware that 700 MHz on Bands 12,13,14,17 used mostly in the US and Canada is not compatible with 700 MHz on Band 28 used or going to be used in Australia, Asia, Europe and Latin America.
The issue with using a non-Rogers device on the Rogers network is that everything may not work as it would normally. There is in fact no guarantee the phone will work on LTE, and since it is not a Rogers device there would be no obligation to really make it work either.
I understand completely. It certainly is worth a shot but I was just setting the expectation that it isn't guaranteed to work.
