Telus WCDMA frequencies issue question

34890 Views 22 Replies 11 Participants Last post by  TorontoColin
I call Telus requested the WCDMA/HSPA frequency they are using but told are 800 mhz and 1900 Mhz. However, I search online found that the Telus/Bell WCDMA/HSPA frequencies are 850/1900 MHZ. I wonder which one is correct?

Another thing, if I buy a smart phone with WCDMA/HSPA 850/1900/2100 Mhz frequency, will it works on Telus even if the Telus customer service told me it's 800/1900 mhz. What about a WCDMA 3G phone with 900/1900/2100 mhz, will still be compatible?

I am a little confuse here on the 50mhz differences compatibility here.

...will highly appreciate if someone could help...

telus owns 850u/850d and 1900u/1900d

if you have a phone that says other frequencies, they will not operate here in canada, such as 1900u/2100d tholse frequencies are paired together, you cant have one without the other. and those phones do not see our SEEG.
james k, 1900/2100 is one band, 2100 downlink/1900 uplink, so to not confuse it with the 1900/1900 band, most people refer to it as IMT, and they refer 1700/2100 as AWS, this avoids confusion when bands are overlapped like 1900,
