    The GSM side should be unlocked, like other Verizon LTE phones. I believe the CDMA side is locked down. Not sure if it will work on Rogers LTE network. You need to know the bands of Rogers LTE network and what bands the 929 supports. Hope this helps!

    I don't understand why it wouldn't work with LTE on Rogers, it supports 700, 1700 and 2600, all of which are the same as rogers.

    Guys are having the same problems on AT&T, not 100% working, even though the frequency bands match. although the icon is sim unlocked it still appears to be locked within Verizon or something.

    I saw another post where someone tried that and it failed. It sounded like they didn't try anything out of the ordinary though so maybe someone could hack a working version. Personally I would have just rather waited for the 930 if I was in Canada. The 930 will have 8.1 out of the box no screwing around required.

    omegacell supposedly will have a 930 variant in 2 weeks that will be NA friendly, so very good news.

    Soo I just read the following post on another forum regarding the network detection errors.
    Lumia Icon network detection erros - Nokia Support Discussions

    I changed the highest connection speed to lte. Turned off wifi and ran speedtest.net. It's showing lte speeds even though the connection icon says "no signal".
    I feel like I'm getting somewhere!!

    so wwith your wifi turned off it stays connected to lte, the problem with mine on rogers is that it connects to 3g and then when it try to connect to lte its kicks me out and back down to edge, then to 3g. I don't know if its a software glitch or an intentional thing Verizon is blocked thru there customised software.

    Wait a couple weeks OmegaCell are getting a North American Variant of the 930 which supports all bands including LTE for all Canadian Networks.

    So I broke down yesterday and installed the windows 8.1 preview for developer because I got tired of waiting for Verizon to release cyan. Switched over to lte under cellular settings and low and behold, I'm getting lte on Rogers! I couldn't be happier right now! Aside from no official cyan yet of course haha.
