I've purchased a Samsung Omnia 7 for use in Canada. It's a long story, but the purchase was actually an accident, but I do like the device and have been following the progression of the WP7 OS over the past year.
Now my question is regarding the compatibility of this phone with networks in Canada (specifically MTS and Rogers). I've read conflicting reports on whether or not it will work on the frequencies available in my area. I spoke to a tech specialist on the phone yesterday who confirmed that it would work on MTS. Now today I had a sales person on the phone from MTS that said it might not work.
After getting over the shock of the accidental purchase, I've been anxious to try the phone out. This will be my first smartphone that is not a Blackberry, and I'm excited to move on. However, I'd like to know before it gets here if it will actually work or if it will be a glorified music player/paperweight.
Any thoughts or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
