Re: samsung s3 lte

Hi kensmith19,

Where are you located exactly? LTE is offered in some cities for now. We are looking at expanding it soon.

You can look at our coverage map for more details.

Thank you,

Hello kensmith19,
As I know,lte is not covered at newmarket,I live at richmnd hill(yonge&19th) and I got lte.I think that is almost the edge of lte coverage.You can check the map on rogers website.

well lte is now in newmarket and still no lte on it..i called rogers and they told me cause maybe i didnt buy the phone through rogers and the ime number can't be added to there system is maybe the reason..i think thats a bunch of b's as i know people who bought iphone 5's from apple and are able to get lte on there units and they werent bought from rogers store or online..i have a lte sim chip...basically the rogers person over the phone wanted me to buy a new phone a s3 or other and would knock off a part of the hardware fee for 30 days..i really wana get lte working on this phone cause i am sure it should work as the phone was bought in canada...

Not really. Not all phones are able to be used with Rogers networks. Please find the specs of the phone and post them here. Also let us know where the phone is from.

 

Apple makes their hardware and software to be used everywhere. Some countries can ONLY use 3G or 4G (HSPA+). Some countries can use that and LTE.  This is hy Apple can do it. Other manufactors make different phones.

You bought the european S3. That one does NOT work on LTE here in Canada. It does NOT have a LTE chip in it. It only uses 3G.

That is why you do NOT get LTE. The Canadian S3 LTE is called I747.

I have that, isn't the model version he has is a quad-core but with 1GB ram?

 

I got mine with the dual-core 2gbs of ram. I really don't mind each, but I find Android phones very useful and awesome because the amount of things you can do to an android compared to an iphone.

 

(Everything is just so verstile. You can move it freely, you're like free for androids!)

I also have a family plan.  However the data plan is called "LTE 4GB Shared Data".

 

I am in winnipeg where there is no LTE (Yet), but I was visiting Toronto on the last long weekend and saw the LTE indicator.

 

The speed for data was fantastic.  I hate paying for it and not getting it (in Winnipeg now), but I am excited that it will come.... soon...
