Re: Rogers Frequencies

Hello Kallin

The S4 from Verizon will indeed work on Rogers GSM / 3G & LTE networks. As long as the phone is unlocked properly & you have a active Rogers wireless sim card.

Rogers supports the following frequncies



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

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

 

No - not combined.  Those are two different bands - band 4 [AWS, or 1700/2100, for which it 1700 is uplink and 2100 is downlink] and band 7 [2600].

 

Verizon GS4 does not support band 7 - only band 4; the other band [band 13] supported by Verizon GS4 is not being used in Canada as of this moment.

Hello rgl168

 

What i meant to say is that all together its called LTE Maxx ( old name)  & as combined i meant thatb Rogers uses those 3 on the netwrok.

 


We wont see Band 13 anytime soon in Canada anyways from what i am seeing so far.

Re: Rogers Frequencies

"LTE Max" is just a fancy marketing term - a way of saying to customers that they have two LTE frequencies bands (band 4 and 7), compared to the other guys (particularly the one with cute animals mascots) having just one.

 

For a phone to transmit on both bands (eg. both 4 *and* band 7) simultaneously, you'll need a phone that supports "carrier aggregation".  Not a lot of phones support this feature at this moment.  This will most likely be changed when 700 network gets more matured and mobile chipsets get further developed.

Hello rgl168


That's why they stopped using the term LTE Maxx.... There are only a few phones such as the Note 3, S5, LG G3 and if i am not mistaken the One M8.


With 700 on the way, many things will be solved including this and alot more.

Re: Rogers Frequencies

Hi,

 

I was considering buying the LG G3, specifically LG-F400S/F400K/F400L and bringing it over to Canada.

 

I've looked at several different forums and some said it might, some said it will and some said it won't.

 

So I'm curious if the phone is going to work fine here in Canada, both LTE and 3G, as well as texting and calling too. 

 

So far I figured out this.

 

And 4G / LTE at different bands LTE, LTE-A / 4G
K version supports: 
GSM850, GSM900, GSM1800, GSM1900, UMTS2100 (B1)
LTE2100 (B1), LTE1800 (B3), LTE900 (B8)
S Version: 
GSM850, GSM900, GSM1800, GSM1900, UMTS2100 (B1)
LTE2100 (B1), LTE850 (B5), LTE1800 (B3)

 

And I also heard that Rogers LTE Network uses 700, 1700 and 2600 and that S Version runs on 700 Mhz and 2600 Mhz but not 1700 Mhz which is mostly used. 

 

Would anyone have any idea? 

 

Thanks a lot.

Re: Rogers Frequencies

In the LTE world, the frequency alone is not enough to determine if a phone will work or not. What you need to verify is the actual band number.


The Rogers LTE network currently uses bands 4 (2100) and band 7 (2600).

 

In the last spectrum auction, Rogers acquired spectrum in the bands 12 and 17 (700 MHz).

 

Based on the bands you listed below, both of these phones would only work on GSM unfortunately.

 

Updated Bands/Frequencies Info:

 

There are frequently questions in this community regarding frequency bands and phone support on the Rogers Wireless network. The following is a summary of the various frequency bands supported on our network as well as the APN configuration required for a device to work optimally on the Rogers Network.

The followings are the optimal APN configurations for various devices. If your device was purchased from Rogers, there is no need to change any of these. This is a strictly a reference and may need to be adapted on certain phones (not all settings may be visible). As a reminder, VoLTE and VoWiFi are generally not compatible with phones not purchased from Rogers.

Re: Rogers Frequencies

Hello lyakyb


Unfortunately you device will not work on Rogers 4G (HSPA+) and LTE networks. It will work only on EDGE and 3G.

Re: Rogers Frequencies

Hi guys, I am looking to buying an unlocked phablet from China via eBay, and wanted to know if it will be compatible with the Rogers network with a data plan.

 

Phone says it works with 2G GSM & 3G WCDMA network.

 

 

2G Network Frequency: 850MHz, 900MHz, 1800MHz, 1900MHz

 

3G & UMTS, WCDMA 2100MHz

 

I currently dont hae the IMEI #, so I wanted to just know generally if it will work with those specs I posted above.

 

Thanks much.
