I qam in Centrepointe area. Two days ago I noticed that there was no "data" signal on the Galaxy S II. I had until then been getting LTE/4G/3G depending on whwre I was -- but more 3G/4G than LTE. Isnt Ottawa the LTE area for Rogers? Where did they do the setup/testing; surely not in a lab somewhere. Also the signal strength is usually one or two bars but other phones have better reception/signal. This morning I monitored the signal on the drive from Tallwood down Meadowlands to Riverside. Only got 4G and sometimes no signal for a few seconds.
Tech Support said the Phone signals would always be 4G and that only the data would go up to LTE.
Copuld it be the phone itself?
Also anyone else notice that the upper portion of the phone seems to get hot? Would the battery explode anytime soon!! 🙂

About 10% of the incoming calls on my phone don't come through, ring, or provide any kind of notification. I can call out, text out, receive text, etc. no problem. Only incoming calls are affected.

Just to let you all know, I had ALL the same issues as you. But rather than just deal with level one or two people - along with tech suport that knew nothing - I looked online and learned about escalating issues higher than level two. All you need to do is do a search for Office of the President and you may find a more receptive voice. It worked for me, and I'm happiy using a Galaxy Nexus now. I miss the 40+ Mbps I got when LTE worked, but I enjoy the lack of headaches a lot more.
Yes, I'm having problems connecting to the LTE network... it actually says unable to connect, I have to send a text 6 times, (it says fail) and then someone receives it.
At this point i have stoped using LTE on my phone all together, there are too many issues with calls and text not being received and i dont seem to be having this issue when strickly HSPA. i have tickets open with rogers and they have confirmed that they are having issues with the phone not switching back to LTE after it receiving a call or gettting stuck and the network just cant see it.
This is really a big disapointment with this phone
