Canadian Z10 compatibility
Quick question, fellas. If I were to buy a canadian Z10 will LTE work? My carrier uses 1700MHz and 2100MHz. I looked up the spec sheets on the US, CA and UK BlackBerry site, and none of them list 2100MHz under LTE, so I'm lost.
Thank you very much!

Well, yeah. Canadian phones work on canadian networks if I'm not mistaken. But I was asking about the 1700&2100MHz LTE bands my carrier uses. Telcel, specifiaclly.
Some dude said they rogers one works on at&t (my carrier uses at&t when Im on the states) so I was wondering if the 3 were fully compatible, LTE-wise.
And he ca.blackberry.com page listed only one model with no 2100 band.
Damn.. Thanks, by the way

The Rogers site lists LTE bands 700/850/1700/1900 HSPA+/HSPA bands 850/1900/2100 GSM/EDGE bands 850/900/1800/1900 under the Z10 Specs
Does that help?Unlocked Rogers Z10 STL100-3 10.2.1.2141 / Unlocked Bell Q10 SQN100-1 10.2.1.1925

Rogers, Bell, TELUS all use the same GSM network and as for AT&T, they're systems are identical to that of Canadian carriers. So alas, if you unlock it or buy an unlocked version it will work fine as kind.

That's odd, my understanding has always been that Bell and TELUS do share towers (and Koodo, Virgin Mobile and Solo) and they DO NOT share with Rogers (and Fido.)
Also, Bell (and TELUS etc.) fall back to CDMA. Rogers to GSM/EDGE.

AnandTech. That's why LTE worked on the Nexus 4 in Canada but not really anywhere in the US. BlackBerry's spec. sheet in Canada says the Z10 supports LTE bands 2, 5, 4, and 17.
Short answer: the Canadian Z10 definitely supports Band 4 LTE which is 1700/2100 MHz. Whether a Canadian Z10 will work on Telcel's HSPA+ (3.5G) network, I have no idea.
Hope that helps.
