@jay200, in addition to what others have stated, texting can also work on LTE. Only calls absolutely need 3G.
Hi, yes I was with Telus and was only able to text but not make calls. I just switched to Rogers today and calling and texting works perfectly. I appreciate everyones help here! You knew more than anyone could tell me at both the Telus, Bell and Rogers stores combined. When I get a new phone I'll definitely look into switching to Public Mobile.
