I will be doing this shortly, so check back for updates!
April 25, 2012 Part 2
I got the SIM from my friend and marked it up.
I cut the SIM down to microsim size.
Booted up my phone, entered the unlock code from cellunlocker.
And got no signal ):
This SIM is (was) working in an HTC Incredible S (international version that supports AWS) immediately before I trimmed it. The trim was successful since the SIM had a PIN lock and unlocking it was successful. I could also see the contacts stored on the SIM.
I went into testing mode to play with the radio settings.
And still get 'No Signal' and 'Emergency Only'.
I've notified HTC again about this and I'll let you know what they advise.
Also, if anyone wants to help me recover the cost of a new WIND SIM ($25), I'd greatly appreciate it, although it's highly unnecessary (:

Just an update: I contacted HTC regarding the discrepancy between the official specifications (AWS on wcdma), and Rogers' specifications (AWS on LTE only) and received this very promising response:
Thank you for contacting HTC. I would be glad to clarify this for you Daniel.
The HTC One X as sold by Rogers Wireless supports the following bands LTE CAT3 - DL 100 /UL 50; LTE: 700/AWS; WCDMA: 2100/1900/AWS/850; EDGE: 850/900/1800/1900 .
It should not be a problem for you to use an unlocked version of this device with the Canadian carrier of your choice, if you so choose. To ensure that the tech specs on our support site were accurate, I conferred with our escalations team. You can be confident that it does indeed support the bands as indicated.
As for why these specs differ on the Rogers support page, I cannot say. Originally the specs were posted there the same as the official HTC support page. I have brought this to the attention of the appropriate department internally on your behalf. They will look into contacting Rogers to see about having the data corrected on their site to avoid any further confusion to our HTC customers.
For more tech specs or to get the user manual for this phone, please visit our official support site at http://www.htc.com/ca/support/htcone...rs/tech-specs/ . On the downloads tab you can access your user guide if necessary. Use the binocular icon on the left to enter keywords. This will search the guide and provide you a list of pages that refer to your search term.
If you have any other questions for me, please don't hesitate to reply Daniel. We are open from 6am to 1am eastern time, 7 days a week.
Thank you again for contacting HTC, and have a great evening!
