    Once unlocked, yes. Are you not aware all Canadian carriers run on GSM and all use the same network bands? The only exception is that Rogers has introduced 2600mHz as their LTE Advanced services offering higher speed LTE, though you'll still be able to access their normal LTE bands. Very few people will need to worry about the 2600mHz band offering details because that's a secondary service to what already exists for Rogers LTE.
    And WIND has 1700 MHz HSPA+, but that's just as irrelevant a distinction.

    Dude I have been with Fido for years you think they don't play the game of having a phone with one carrier that they own over the other knowing that they still own that customer bud we will wait and see! BlackBerry lives forever! Keep Moving! BE BOLD!

    Well I hope you're right. But as another said, the likelihood is very slim to not all!

    Just buy one from Bell/TELUS when they go on sale.
    Bla1ze, after doing some digging, some have said the following model is the right one for Canada: STA100-2, but after looking at some information on BlackBerry website, I believe that STA100-5 will be to correct model to work on Rogers / Fido (2100mhz & 2600mhz), can you confirm?

    Cheers!

    Ironically here on the west coast with Rogers after waiting years for LTE to expand out from Vancouver (with nothing happening) all the new coverage areas seem to be popping up straight to the LTE 2600 band.

    But really will any Canadian Carrier have a different model then the -02 seeing as none of them have a need for the 2600 band?

    I'm totally ready to buy off contract but won't unless I can take advantage of the "advanced LTE" speeds
