Pre-ordering the 950 from the Microsoft Store

With previous phones on the Microsoft Store, even though the phone was unlocked, you had to specify your carrier when ordering. This doesn't seem to be the case with the 950. Before I pre-order, I wanted to make sure that there's only one 950 model that will work on any/every carrier in Canada.

 

Thanks in advance.

@Alph

 

as far as I know there is only one version of the 950 and it will work on various networks including GSM which is the type of network that  Rogers supplies.

 

GSM network: 850MHz, 900MHz, 1800MHz, 1900MHz is the frequencies that the phone has and as far as i know the exact same frequencies that Rogers uses so should work on the lumia 950 950XL

 

 

here are the network specs according to microsoftstore.ca maybe a Rogers rep can verify that the lumia 950 series will indeed work on Rogers networks.

 

GSM network: 850MHz, 900MHz, 1800MHz, 1900MHz
GSM max data speed DL: EGPRS 296.0kbps
GSM max data speed UL: EGPRS 236.8kbps
WCDMA network: Band 1 (2100MHz), Band 2 (1900MHz), Band 4 (1700/2100 MHz), Band 5 (850MHz), Band 8 (900MHz)

WCDMA max data speed UL: 5.76Mbps (Cat 6)

TD-LTE network: Band 38 (2570-2620MHz), Band 40 (2300-2400MHz), Band 41 partially (2555-2575 MHz)

Re: Pre-ordering the 950 from the Microsoft Store

Hi @Alph

 

Have you tried contacting the Microsoft store?

 

Maybe our Resident Expert @brandonjbarnard can provide some clarification here.
