The unlock phone I want to get has these Network Spec. I am wondering if it will works with Rogers LTE network.
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.
The specs are as follows
@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. However, we 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?
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?
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 ??
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.
Will these specs work with Rogers?
