Okay I have a pretty simple question. I know Telus HSPA runs on 850/1900 BUT is there any apps or way of telling what frequency I am running on at a specific location? I ask as I need to add a repeater inside my office build as the cell reception is terrible! but I dont really want to buy both frequencies if I can figure out what is being used in this location. Is 1900 the standard for Calgary?

I have tried a few android apps but non thus far have shown the frequency best I could get was data is on UMTS and ca HSDPA.

So should I just get a 1900 and hope its right or figure out how to tell what im running on here

Typically this information is buried inside a service menu. Depending on your phone, there would be a code you enter in the dialer screen that would show what frequency you are using.

That being said I did find a dual band repeater That is only about $350 with shipping so I might just go that route and hope its stong enough for the office. as compared to a bit more robust system

Just read some reviews on the Zboost I was thinking of, well does not sound so good so sounds like back to single band for now.

That service menu loaded but still does not tell me the frequency that the phone runs on here.
