I'm hoping it's like the skyrocket mod, that can be done to one x... so, hard to resist from getting it, might have to wait for wind to get the one s that t-mobile is getting

Don't get me wrong. I preordered the HTC One X on AT&T at full price and will have it this next Friday. If it doesn't work, I already set-up a thread discussing the radio mod with a donation offer.

FYI, someone on HoFo said they tried a Wind SIM after they unlocked the phone and it didn't work on their Rogers One X.

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:

Quote:

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!

I'll follow-through on my test run on WIND tomorrow (going to cut up a friend's SIM!).

Hey I got a very similar response from HTC basically saying yup it is supported and in the meantime I've made a complaint with Rogers that I am waiting to hear back from, it's encouraging that HTC will try to contact them directly to remedy the situation as well! Very excited to hear your results tomorrow!

muchsk / danada,

Greetings.

Thank for your sharing. Can you please ask HTC why the variant in question i.e. the North American variant with LTE support from Rogers (also marketed as HTC One XL elsewhere) and Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 (Dual-core)... PJ83100, has NEVER filed any certification for WCDMA VOICE and DATA operation in the UMTS Band IV (AWS) at FCC and Industry Canada?

At FCC Office of Engineering and Technology, NM8PJ83100: https://apps.fcc.gov/oetcf/eas/repor...7NM8PJ83100%27

Check out the reports such as SAR report 1, we can find the reference...

GSM 850 / 1900
UMTS Band II (1900) / V (850)
LTE Band 4 (AWS) / 17 (700, Lower Block B & C for at&t)


At Industry Canada, Certification and Engineering Bureau, 4115A-PJ83100: http://www.ic.gc.ca/app/sitt/reltel/...ch.do?lang=eng

The relevant designator in the AWS spectrum, 9M16W7D, refers to the LTE Band 4 (AWS) operation - NOT UMTS/HSPA+.

Also, it also contradicts with the real world experience by others like mobileservice in HoFo thread http://www.howardforums.com/showthre...0#post14789050 as well as the latest update from you (danada) here.
