    Toronto Eaton Centre - no 3G internet?

    Is it just me or is this happening to others as well?

    I am using an factory-unlocked iPhone 4 on Rogers Pre-paid, and whenever I am in or near the Eaton Centre, I can't use Rogers' 3G internet. I have better luck if I switch to the Edge network.

    Is this happening to anyone else?

    Thanks

    ^ I 2nd that. They do this purposely so they can minimize congestion. Plus, there are 4 fric'ing starbuck, 1 second cup, and an apple store with WiFi hotspot.

    Would that explain this then? Eaton Centre and TRS is pretty close to each other... But still, with me I had the problem of being unable to make calls and texts as well at TRS and around Ryerson.

    I thought this only happens during the Christmas season for Eaton Centre ... it was ok last week, wasn't super fast though .... very slow still.

    Fairview sucked hard for this Christmas too, OMG DANJA!

    You see it doesn't matter if you are big 3 or not. Service is never consistent and expectations need to be lowered. Get over it your phone may not work to expectation all the time.

    I was at the eaton centre approx a month ago and I was BlackBerry Messenger and browsing without issues.

    Is this consistently happening?

    In my 2 years working there, I had flakey connectivity on multiple devices for about 40% of the time.

    Yeah, it's always like this. But as someone said there is a bunch of WiFi spots in there.

    I live 5 minutes away from Eatons Centre and go there
    For 1.5 hours 2 times a week.

    I almost never have 3G working.
    Have to use EDGE (which is very very slow in the beginning).
    It's been like that for ages.

    I haven't had any issues either. It's weak but 3G is there.
