Hi there. HSPA is not a cellular air interface, but more so a data layer. Bell uses UMTS for their network, and HSPA is what gives you the high speed internet. if you unlock the phone, yes it will work on Roger's as well, because like bell, they also have a UMTS network that supports HSPA, as well they have another network called GSM too.

They all use the same network technology for 3G (UMTS/HSPA) so it will work, and they also use the same frequency as well for this technology. The only company using a different frequency is Wind Mobile (Global Live), they dont use 850/850, 1900/1900, they use 1700/2100 instead.

as for your question about the SIM, you can get a sim card from anywhere, ie store, online, heck even online buy/sell/trade forums. they honestly don;t care what phone you have if your buying one. it wont matter to them. I would not be worrying about sim if i were you, theyre like prety cheap, even in a retail store price. id be more worried about passing a credit cheque and getting a account set up more so than the sim.

hope this helps.
