I have been calling Rogers, searching the net for some answer on why my phone will only do 3G.
Under the mobil network settings I have 3 options "2G", "3G", "3G & 2G" No H or H+ options.
This was the same with the original rom provided with the phone 7.0.???, and with the 7.1 release.
I am not sure if certain fetures are turned off becuase it has a Vendor ID of 612. (I am not sure if those carriers actually support H/H+.
When I run a Diagnostic test, I have the following:
Radio Access: UMTS
I have verfied this from many locations withing Ottawa, Canada which Rogers supports HSPA+
If I cannot use H+ due to the Vendor Id I would be very disappointed. I am hoping that someone can explain this, or even better have a solution.

Hello srissman and welcome to the BlackBerry Support Community Forums.
Did you purchase your BlackBerry from Rogers directly or from another source and unlocked it for usage on Rogers?
If it was unlocked, then this would explain why you aren't getting the HSPA network as network availability is determined by each mobile carrier and the software on the device. Since the device isn't branded to Rogers you can't install software from Rogers to the device which would be needed to use all supported features of the carrier network.
Hope this helps to answer your question.

So odd reason I didn't get notification of your response, then I got busy and forgot I posted
Rogers just releases 7.1 of their OS and I have installed this (I had to remove the vendor.xml files so it can be detected via the DM). I still only have the 2G/3G setting and not HAPA/HSPA+. Kinda annoying if it is the result of buying a RIM unbranded (unlocked) phone it doesn't seem to be worth it anymore.
I have to say though, I do love the phone
I purchased the phone directly from RIM via the employee program (my wife).
So if there is any other ideas or if anyone knows if the vendor id has anything to do with it.
Vendor ID: 612
3G Bands 1,2,5,6

Ah, an employee purchase device.
Since this device wasn't branded to Rogers then it will not have all the features as a branded device would.
Hope that answers your question.

So what your saying is that anyone who is in this boat is out of luck ?
Does the lack of hte H+ mean that it really isn't using the so called faster version of 3G ? or just that it isn't showing it ?
