Hello Torguy

 

2G only, 3G does not work.

Hello epcjay


Incorrect. 3G will work. LTE may not work depending on what band it is.

Re: Rogers Frequencies

Hello. I want to buy a cell phone and it supports 2G: GSM 850/900/1800/1900MHz and 3G: WCDMA 850/2100MHz.

 

I only want to use 3G.I know Rogers does not support WCDMA, but are there any Canadian mobile networks that supports the WCDMA 850/2100 band?

 

Sorry if I sounded a little confusing. I'm not good with this mobile stuff haha.

Hello Mehrab

WCDMA and HSPA are 3G. Rogers supports it. You will indeed get EDGE and 3G. Rogers has HSPA/WCDMA: 900/2100 MHz

Rogers's frequencies for HSPA/WCDMA: 850/1900 MHz

Re: Rogers Frequencies

Hello. Thanks for the reply. So, just to clarify, Rogers DOES support the WCDMA 850/2100Mhz band?

 

Will I be able to use 3g on the phone to it's fullest extent?

Re: Rogers Frequencies

Hello Mehrab


Which device is this if u don't mind me asking? The specs you have given will work with Rogers but mind you that u need to input Rogers APN settings in order to use it on Rogers. That's pretty easy.

Hello Mehrab

Re: Rogers Frequencies

Lol yes. The price is nice as well haha, let's just hope it will be as durable as it sounds.

 

Anyways, thanks a lot for your help! It really helped a lot. Would I still need to change the APN settings, in order for it to work with Rogers?

Hello Mehrab

Yes you still need to input Rogers APN settings in the device to work with Rogers. Also make sure this device is unlocked as well! ( which it should be!)
