Hello Odifuser,

 

  Welcome to the community!

 

  Generally, Fido/Rogers customers will roam on either AT&T or T-Mobile networks as they operate UMTS (WCDMA) & LTE networks and cover most of the US (T-Mobile also has a limited GSM network). **edit** However, to which network your phone connects depends in part on the band/frequency capabilities of your phone.**

 

  Both Sprint and Verizon operate (or at least did) using CDMA technologies which are not compatible with GSM phones.

 

Hope this helps Smiley

 

Cheers

hi

the rogers/fido network is best buddies with at&t,

this means if one is shopping for an mobile (unlocked and outside of Canada), one should mention that they use at&t network,
