    Thanks for the reply. The reason I asked is because on my 1520 on rogers there was no way to get MMS to work and I was hoping that was not the case with the 930. My white 930 should be delivered by end of this week! Cheers,

    Yes and if you are on Rogers/Bell you should have 4G too
    That's awesome, thanks.

    I was going to either SaskTel or Telus, do they have 4G?

    Don't know about SaskTel, you will only get 3G (well, HSPA+) on Telus

    I thought Telus has LTE/4G now? My gf is with them in Ontario and gets LTE.

    The 3 major carriers up here all have LTE, but they use band 4 which the 930 DOES NOT support. In fact almost all of North America is predominantly band 4 LTE. There's a few differences but if you want 100% LTE compatibility your device needs to support band 4.

    HOWEVER, Rogers and Bell also have I think limited band 7 LTE support which the 930 DOES have. I say limited because I think those bands are only in major cities but not everywhere.

    Thanks for clarification.

    Looks like I'm stuck on a carrier with band 7 or get the Nokia Lumia 1520 RM-938 (with LTE AWS) from www.omegacell.com/

    As far as I know all the 930 have the same bands regardless of which country it's from. It's purely an international model with international frequencies so there is no 930.3 variant like there is for the 1520

    Apart from the specific US/Canadian version.

    Bonjour Mazobo,

    What is your 1520 variant? if a RM-937, only one compatible LTE band with Rogers (7) (i think from what i can read), could it be that with probably no LTE available then MMS don't works? And if it's the case, the 930 have the same bands as the 1520 RM-937.

    Rogers LTE band : 4, 7, 17
    List of LTE networks - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    930 LTE band: 1, 3, 7, 8, 20.
    Nokia Lumia 930 Specifications - Nokia

    1520 RM-937 band : 1, 3, 7, 8, 20
    1520 RM-938 band : 2, 4, 5, 7, 17
    Nokia Lumia 1520 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    So am I right to say that the 1520 RM-938 is the one with greater chance of compatibility with Rogers? Its actually our best choice here in Canada for high-end Lumia?

    Yes, the RM-938 variant is better. See my post somewhere up there that mentions Omegacell.
