Hello Vule011,

 

  Welcome to the community!

 

  Fido would carry the Canadian versions of the S7 and S7 Edge, namely the SM-G930W8 and the SM-G935W8, respectively.

 

  The band/frequency specifications for the SM-G930W8:

 

  • 2G GSM GSM850, GSM900, DCS1800, PCS1900
  • 3G UMTS B1(2100), B2(1900), B4(AWS), B5(850), B8(900)
  • 3G TD-SCDMA B34(2010), B39(1880)
  • 4G FDD LTE B1(2100), B2(1900), B3(1800), B4(AWS), B5(850), B7(2600), B8(900), B12(700), B13(700), B17(700), B18(800), B19(800), B20(800), B25(1900), B29(700), B30(2300)
  • 4G TDD LTE B38(2600), B39(1900), B40(2300), B41(2500)

Re: LTE for S7 and S7 Edge

Thank you  for the answer,I looked at the Samsung Canada site to and indeed all the frequencies are there..

The problem is the Fido site,which says otherwise..I just wanted to make sure Fido didn't tinker with the phone which sometimes OEM's do..

Thanks..

Re: LTE for S7 and S7 Edge

Some of the 4G frequencies for the S7 and S7 edge are missing..So I dont know, is it Intentionally or otherwise?

Did Fido tinkered with the LTE frequencies for these specific phones?

Re: LTE for S7 and S7 Edge

Hey there @vule011 

 

All Fido phones are configured to Fido. The frequencies are as @Cawtau mentioned above: all of the information he shared there are definitely accurate. What information do you find inaccurate on Fido.ca? We'll make sure that's looked into!

Re: LTE for S7 and S7 Edge

the information about the 4G(LTE) frequencies for the S7 and S7 Edge,on the Fido site when you go to specifications, some of the bands are not listed! As for, for example when you look at Galaxy A5 the bands are all listed correctly..Thanks

Re: LTE for S7 and S7 Edge

Hey @vule011

 

I reviewed the frequencies for the Samsung S7 and S7 Edge and the information is correct. The bands listed for those devices are the ones compatible with these specific phones. 

 

Hope that clarifies that for you.
