Re: Rogers Frequencies

Hello, I'm planning to buy a phone which has the following frequency.  Will that work with Rogers in Toronto in terms of 4G, 3G, and 2G?

 

4G

- FDD-LTE

- Band 1(2100MHz)

- Band 2(1900MHz)

- Band 3(1800MHz)

- Band 4 (AWS)

- Band 7 (2600MHz)

 

3G

- WCDMA (850/900/1800/1900MHz/2100MHz)

 

2G

- GSM (850/900/1800/1900MHz)

 

 

Thanks

Hello alanchicken

Yes it will work with Rogers. There is also a Thread made about Frequencies which Rogers uses!!

Re: Rogers Frequencies

I just noticed from another post that Rogers uses below frequencies.

 

- GSM/EDGE Bands: 850/900/1800/1900
- HSPA+/HSPA Bands: 850/1900/2100

- The LTE for Rogers is classified as 1700/2100/2600 combined also known as AWS

 

Does that mean it will work only in 2G (not 3G or 4G)?  I am not too familiar with these frequency thing.

 

thanks!

Re: Rogers Frequencies

Hello,

 

Thanks Meowmix for the info.

 

For 3G, the one that I am planning to buy says "WCDMA" while Rogers uses "HSPA+" or "HSPA" although the "numbers" (850/1900/2100) match.  Does this matter?

 

For 4G, I guess it doesn't matter?

 

Thanks!

Re: Rogers Frequencies

"WCDMA" vs. "HSPA" - technically there is a difference, they are often used interchangably in marketing literature.

 

For the purpose of our discusion here, you may treat the two terms as the same.

 

"3G" vs "4G" - even more marketing speak.  I'll ignore the 3G/4G term and focus on the frequency bands, which in looking at the specs you have posted, appears to be compatible with nearly all bands currently deployed by Rogers.

First, your comment regarding "big phone" - I have my doubts about either of these tablets will function natively as a phone (via cell company's phone circuits, and I don't count VoIP apps).  

 

Second, looking at your specs, you are potentially looking at several variants.  The way it looks to me is that one variant of Tab S LTE supports 4G 800/900/1800/2600 while another supports 850/2100.  Assuming this is the case, 2G and 3G will work fine (as 850/1900 are supported on both 2G and 3G), but 4G you need the one that supports 2600.

 

Then for Tab Pro, you are definitely looking at two variants - T325 and T321.  2G and 3G support identical to above; on the other hand, it looks like T321 does not support 4G LTE, so you want to buy T325 instead of T321.  Even then, you will only get 2600, not AWS.

 

Again, notwithholding that these tablets probably would not function as native phones, regardless of frequency compatibilities.
