Hello RandySolara

Any phone that is used on the Wind / Mobilicity network, will NOT be able to access the Rogers networks.

Rogers uses the AWS network on LTE. That is about it. Google it and you will see it. I bought a unlocked Galaxy Nexus from Wind but only could ue it om EDGE networks Rogers due to the different chipsets / networks.

 

http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rogers_Wireless

 

"In the summer of 2009, the network was upgraded to HSPA+ technology. Enhancements include download speeds of up to a theoretical 21.6 Mbit/s.[6]

 

This network operates on the frequencies of 850/1900 MHz.[7] Although Bell and Telus operate HSPA+ networks separate from Rogers, they transmit using the same frequencies

The frequecies uses, i am not sure.

 

Bigest thing, is i am not sure if winds phones, are LOCKED.  If it  is locked to them, carrie specific, it would need to be unlocked before you could add it.

Re: Question about Samsung Nexus S >

Hello alevasse


I suggest doing a Google research before making comments as well. The Google Nexus S came in 2 versions. 1 version is able to work for Rogers, Bell and Telus. The 2nd device works with Wind, Mobilicity and the rest.

If you buy a Wind Nexus S, it will be unlocked but like I said, you will ONLY get 2G networks meaning only EDGE. You will not see 3G on there.

You also need to change you APN as well to make it work on Rogers. Here is more info on it and google it if you must to see it as well.
