    Hmm, Sprint may be delaying the device launch until after the B10 buzz. A bold move but will it pay off?

    On the close-up picture of the Q10 with its back cover off, you can see that it's submodel RFL111LW. That matches to SQN100-1, so it looks like that's the Telus model. That shouldn't come as a big surprise though, as that exactly matches the the Z10 model that Telus sells. I would venture a guess and say that Bell will have the same model, but time will tell.

    Sorry, I should have clarified. This isn't necessarily the Telus model, it's a review unit. I was just pointing out the apparent discrepancy.

    I just picked up my Rogers Q10 and asked about roaming on LTE in the USA . Their system had two Q10 SKU for the Q10, one marked for USA. I guess this means there will be a choice if you spend a lot of the time in the USA roaming and want LTE. The unit i received was a SQN100-3.

    So I'm guessing Rogers is pretty much settled, but in case it isn't: Unboxing the white Rogers BlackBerry Q10 | CrackBerry.com

    Got mine from Rogers today, confirming that it is a SQN100-3.

    Seems like Rogers have 2 different skus in their system but are for the most part pushing the SQN100-3 model since it supports the 2600 frequency that they are making a big deal about.

    Not sure how you would go about getting the other model, probaly some special request. I talked to a Rogers rep and they have been instructed to ask if the customer will be travelling to the US. I'll have to talk to a friend that works at Rogers to see what their stock levels of each model is at. My guess would be major city centers are getting more of the SQN100-3 since Rogers is running the 2600 band. It will be interesting to see how things play out over the next few weeks.

    So far everyone has either had a SQN100-1 (Bell/Telus) or SQN100-3 (Rogers/Fido). Is there anyone out there with the SQN100-5?

    For the SQN100-2, AT&T may only be partially potentially compatible. Even though VZ and AT&T use the same band for LTE, they don't use the same band blocks. RIM went with not making the VZ STL100-4 compatible with AT&T's LTE, so they may choose to do the same with the Q10 -2.

    I agree the SQN100-2 is kind of irrelevant in Canada as that one is all about Verizon. The SQN100-1 and SQN100-3 are both in Canada and well documented. The SQN100-5 is MIA...

    Looking at the bands, -5 may be carried by just the AWS HSPA+ networks. So up in your neck of the woods, that would be WIND, Mobilicity, Videotron. I think your big three chose not to carry it just so people wouldn't be buying -5s from them, getting them unlocked, and taking them to other compatible networks. This may also explain why Rogers "officially" went with the -3, while Bell "officially" went with the -1 (Telus did not have the luxury of having a LTE 2600 network, so they too went with the -1.) Pretty stupid really, but that's the only theory I got lol.

    I got rogers sqn100-3, and I'm only getting 4G and no lte, whereas my z10 was Stl100-3 and I was getting lte everywhere, I'm kind of pissed, I'm pretty sure I'm over the 30 min and the stores don't have sqn100-3 but customer service on the phone does.

    Meant to say the stores only have sqn100-3, but rogers customer service has the other one which in their system shows up as RIMNUS, rather than RIMN which is SQN100-3. Now I have to get store to accept the return then order from customer service and wait for it to be shipped!

    Just read on Android Central that Rogers is planning to introduce LTE on the 2100 MHz band in some places??? Clusterf*** commence.

    If I were getting this phone unlocked, outright and I lived in North America I would not want any other model than the SQN100-5...it has the most relevant HSPA and LTE bands of all the variants...

    Totally agree. If you are looking to use this with AT&T and want the appropriate LTE and HSPA bands this is the one to grab. I am trying to get one as I type, but haven't had much luck yet.

    Model -1 was the version approved by the FCC, presumably for AT&T. Model -5 isn't a requirement.

    Makes sense. Looks like 5 can be used with T-mobile or AT&T, while 1 should have not issue with AT&T since it is only missing the 1700 HSPA band that AT&T does not use.

    If you look at the Telus website, they have just changed it. It used to show Band IV AWS support for HSPA and now they have removed it...so it looks like WIND will be getting that version in two weeks (as the store told me today)...

    My SQN100-1 did not work with WIND as expected, it did however load up the WIND logo when booting up...so the wait for the SQN100-5 begins...

    Well at least this gives us an indication there isn't a hidden AWS band in the SQN100-1 as there supposedly is in the RFF91LW STL100-3.

    That's interesting, wonder if the 3 does?
