Is Rogers compatible with a Chinese unlocked iPhone 6 Plus?

I am an international student, and I want to use my iPhone6 Plus(bought in China) in Canada. However, I don't know if it can be compatible in Rogers. Thanks for your answer!

Hello Aspada


Unfortunately it may only work on EDGE or 3G networks on Rogers as the Chinese devices use different frequencies then we do. You need to look at the specs of those devices and see.

If I am reading that right, you would likely only get then 3G on it.

The LTE it has doesnt match

Hello Aspada

Unfortunately your device as u said in my first post will only get EDGE and or 3G. It won't get LTE as the bands don't match the Rogers ones.

Re: Is Rogers compatible with a Chinese unlocked iPhone 6 Plus?

Hello,

Sorry to revive old thread, but can anyone point me to why the fully unlocked model "A1586" does not work with Rogers?

I thought rogers use following LTE band: LTE Band 4 (AWS), LTE Band 7 (2600), and 700MHz new one. the decive "A1586" offers all the frequencies that Rogers iphone 6 A1549 offers and a lot more LTE band. This can be confirmed at apple website by searching LTE bands for iphone 6
