Can't get anything but Edge on my unlocked phone

I recently bought a Blu Studio 5.5 D610a. It has the following specs:

 

2G Network GSM 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900 - SIM 1 & SIM 2 3G Network HSDPA 850 / 1900 - D610a    

I have tried multiple APN settings and nothing gets me more than an Edge connection. Is that the max that my phone can do?

Hello almightyjeff

That is because this phone will only work on EDGE with the Rogers network unfortunately. You won't get 3G or anything higher then that.

So Rogers 3G network doesn't reside on 800,850, 1900, or 2100? Not one of those spectrums can get higher than Edge?

Hello almightyjeff

They do but your phone specs dont work for the Rogers frequencies from what i can tell. Also dual sim phones have issues working on Canadian carriers.

I am able to swap this phone out for the Studio 5.5S for no extra charge and it has the following specs:

HSDPA 850 / 1900 / 1700

Would that phone get 3G or 4G with Rogers (Victoria, BC)?

Thanks.
