Re: Rogers Frequencies

depends if it supports the HSPA, EDGE frequeinces that I posted. LTE may not work everywhere, only areas with B7 2600

 

It's always better to buy the North American version of a phone for maximum compatiblity

Re: Rogers Frequencies

What this means is that Band 7 runs at 2600 Mhz and is operational on many of the Rogers Wireless sites in Canada. So yes you will be able to use your phone in Canada where it is up.and running. All major cities will be available for your Internet service.

Desktop Cellular Phone (Landline Replacement)  - Raven

 

Will this phone work on the Rogers network?  The manufacturer says no based on the bands.  I'm not so sure.

Re: Rogers Frequencies

Hello @jimaginet@DominicB

 

@jimaginet Welcome to the Forums and I apologize for the late reply!

 

You should be able to use your non-Rogers phone, as it is compatible with some of Rogers' frequencies. Howeverwe can't guarantee you that you get access to our LTE network.  

 

@DominicB Although I'm not familiar with this equipment, according to the band, it should be compatible with Rogers network, however, as previously stated we can't guarantee a non rogers device will work.

 

You can find more information here: Rogers LTE APN Settings

 

Anyone else in the community have experience with the desktop cellular phone?

Re: Rogers Frequencies

Will a Moto G4 Plus unlocked phone from the USA work ok on Rogers?

Here's the Canadian Moto G Plus version's specs:

Networks

4G LTE (Cat 4)
UMTS / HSPA+
GSM
Bands (by model)

Moto G Plus - XT1641
GSM (850, 900, 1800, 1900 MHz)
UMTS / HSPA+ (850, 900, 1700, 1900, 2100 MHz)
4G LTE (B2, B3, B4, B5, B7, B12, B17, B28)
Band coverage varies by model, country, and carrier.

Here's the unlocked USA version's specs:

Networks

4G LTE (Cat 4)
CDMA / EVDO Rev A
UMTS / HSPA+
GSM / EDGE
Bands (by model)

Moto G Plus - XT1644
CDMA (850, 1900 MHz)
GSM / GPRS / EDGE (850, 900, 1800, 1900 MHz)
UMTS / HSPA+ (850, 900, 1700, 1900, 2100 MHz)
4G LTE (B1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 12, 13, 25, 26, 41)
Band coverage varies by model, country, and carrier.

The USA version (XT1644) lacks LTE bands 17 and 28.

Would that be a problem with Rogers for data or voice?

 

What if the USA phone didn't have a data plan under Rogers, just voice?

Would that work?

Re: Rogers Frequencies

After looking through some of these posts,  it seems the USA phone is only lacking LTE Band 17 as far as Rogers is concerned. It has the other 700mhz Band 12, and all the other LTE Bands (and all the other protocols as far as I can tell.)

 

So I guess I'm asking just how would the lack of Band 17 play out in real world in Rogers Canada ??

Re: Rogers Frequencies

 

Hello, @brucelazerte

 

Thank you for posting your query in the Community. As you are aware Rogers network uses GSM, UMTS, HSPA and HSPA+ at 850 MHz and 1900 MHz, or LTE technology at 2100/2600 MHz AWS. So any unlocked phone which has the compatible frequencies shall work, however, we can't guarantee the performance the unlocked device. 

 

Cheers,

RogersMoin
