    The $40 BTS promo runs to Sept 30.

    Last thing: wow, moblicity's data speed and signal strength is weak compared to wind! It's going to be a rough time for me until Mobilicity finally switches onto the Rogers network...

    Your signal strength largely depends on your proximity to the tower. You can check the relative distances of the closest WIND and (currently) Mobilicity towers at sites.postpro.net.

    According to that there's one on the building across the street from where I'm having this issue...

    If that's the tower your phone's using, your signal strength should be a full 5 bars, not 'weak'. Something else is at play. Your phone may be connecting to a different tower. During transition the Mobilicity sites available will be in flux, up to half are going to WIND. If you want verification of tower used with actual signal strength mapping, there's CellMapper. https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...net.cellmapper
    Be aware, CellMapper is a capable tool that requires some understanding and engagement by the user.

    Network Signal Info will identify the tower you're connected to, but not where it's located. It can graph (not map) varying signal strength values. https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...android.telnet

    It won't be too long before your phone is on the Rogers network and showing a strong signal. And it won't be AWS.

    I honestly think these dealers are making things up for a sale? If it was official that the yellow areas will be covered too, Rogers/Mobilicity would have announced it. Would I like it to be true? Absolutely Yes! Because I'm in Milton. I think the Rep was just trying to make a sale.

    My personal guess is that coverage will grow slightly.

    When I was helping a friend troubleshoot his phone a few days ago we were transferred to tier 2 tech support which is located in Canada and the tech helping us also mentioned the yellow area's will become coverage areas albeit not right away

    Definitely
    Dealers know very little about what will happen

    Although since nearly half of Milton already works on Mobi (east of Ontario) it's worth the bet that rest of city gets coverage

    I sure hope so!!! I have tweeted Mobilicity multiple times to confirm if the yellow parts of their maps will be included in the homezones after Rogers switch, but unfortunately no reply thus far.

    The worst case scenario is Rogers following exactly the old Mobilicity map boundaries. Even that is acceptable as we'll have much improved coverage in our current zones that we initially signed up for.

    However with Wind being Mobilicity's main competitor I think eventually the zones will follow lockstep with them. Look at Chatr's coverage they are mirroring almost every move Wind makes.

    I'd expect the same for LTE as well, once Wind releases it Mobi will most likely follow suit.

    Mobilicity replied to my tweet that the "yellow" areas have been on the coverage maps for a while (obviously) but they don't have any immediate plans to expand at this time...

    So one option is to get before it expires at the end of September (hopefully there is more clarity about this by then) and add the 10 or $20 addon. Or option 2 stick with Koodo $50 plan (SK)...

    Can anyone tell me, if I can use an unlocked Iphone 4s on Mobilicity when they switch over to Rogers 3G network? and if so when?

    If they migrate the network, then yes.

    I'm looking for a new service provider and just read through the thread. So it looks like new coverage will still be limited but improved, and only 3G. However, the BTS promo says it's province-wide - does that just mean the unlimited zones and not roaming?

    They have to migrate the network
    All spectrum is being transferred to Wind
    (Unless this is some sort of poison pill, Rogers gives Wind spectrum, loads clients on cheap plans in the hopes to further degrade Winds network)
