    So i am just learning about 3g bands, and have a couple of questions... i have searched and not found anything helpful...

    first i tried to get that e screen generator page but apparently its not avail anymore, so i dont know what band that I am running on.

    I am with rogers, obviously. I have installed the OS 5.0.0.423 from Bell mobility. This OS says that the 3G bands are 1,2,5 and 6

    are these the proper bands for Rogers? Does it matter? should i be using an OS released by rogers?

    Can anyone help me understand the whole band thing?? i want to make sure I am getting the fastest speed out of my 9700

    I am asking because aparently there is a newer OS for the 9700 and it shows different 3G bands then the ones that I am showing with .423

    Thanks in Advance.

    rogers 9700 supports bands 1,2,5 (2100, 1900, 850)
    rogers is running bands 2 and 5 (1900 and 850)

    the band is set by hardware, so don't worry about the OS from other carriers.
