Re: Rogers Frequencies

Good afternoon @Bombelkie & @sawhcale,

 

Thank you for your posts.

 

You should both technically be able to use your unlocked device, as the Band 7 is compatible with Rogers' network. We, however, cannot assure you that it is entirely functional since the phones you are looking to purchase are not officially supported by Rogers.

 

When using a "non-Rogers" phone, don't forget to make sure you have the appropriate Rogers LTE APN Settings!

 

Don't hesitate to let us know if you have any other questions Smiley Wink

Re: Rogers Frequencies

Hi all!

 

I am thinking of buying a new phone from another country.  From my understanding, Rogers (and other Canadian carriers) offers the following LTE bands:

 

Band 4 (1700/2100 MHz)

Band 7 (2600 MHz)

Band 12 (700 MHz)

 

Out of these 3 bands, the phone I am interested only has Band 7.  Will this be an issue?

(The phone I am interseted is the Mi Max).

 

Thanks!

Re: Rogers Frequencies

Thanks @Meowmix!

 

I am wondering will I experience frequent downgrades from LTE to 3G?  i.e. How good is the coverage of Band 7? I believe Band 4 is the "primary" band... right?  I am in Metro Vancouver.

Re: Rogers Frequencies

Hello I'm considering the purchase of a BLU Life One X2 for my next phone. I'm not sure what bands Rogers uses but the one X2 uses: 

Technology GSM / HSPA / LTE
2G bands GSM 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900
3G bands HSDPA 850 / 1700(AWS) / 1900 / 2100
4G bands LTE band 2(1900), 4(1700/2100), 7(2600), 12(700), 17(700)
Speed HSPA 42.2/11.5 Mbps, LTE Cat4 150/50 Mbps
GPRS Yes

Would someone be able to tell me if I can use this phone on the Rogers network? 

 

Thanks

Re: Rogers Frequencies

Rogers does us the 4G band 7 so you should be good.
Since it is not a Rogers phone, be sure to add the Rogers LTE Access Point Name

Re: Rogers Frequencies

Good evening @SIVAPRAS329,

 

Welcome to the Forums!

 

From the information provided, the device described would grant you access to voice calls.

 

We unfortunately cannot guarantee that you get access to data transmissions and/or to our LTE network.

 

Please visit this page for more information on the use of a non-Rogers device, on our network.
