Re: Maze Alpha

Aha! 'Tis as I suspected.

And thinking about it, that would be a lot to pay per MB esp at such slow speeds

Hopefully, when all the phones become untied, things will be more competative.

Thank you very much for your answer.

It's Shaw Open and fongo for me for the next while.

Has anyone discovered any carrier in Canada that works with the Maze Alpha?

Re: Maze Alpha

So far the only thing ive found that works is 2g for voice and text, so Fido, Rogres, Chatr and I think 7-11 speak out and Petro can and Mobilicity (if you can find any active stores left) 

I couldnt get a speed test to even run while using a Rogers Sim, calls and texts work fine.

So if you just need it for calling and or texting, thoes would be the carriers you could use it on.

 

I am still messing around with it, trying different things, but Im down to my last couple options and I still need to figure out a bunch of stuff. Had me so pissed off I went and bought an Iphone 8+

Re: Maze Alpha

I have come up with an almost perfect solution for myself, which probably isn't ideal for everyone. A couple of years ago I started using an iPad mini with a SIM card to answer calls through Google Hangouts. The iPad was used for the majority of my computing needs as well. It served the double purpose of pseudo phone and pseudo computer. I rarely ever use a laptop or a desktop computer for anything. But I had to use a Bluetooth earpiece if I wanted a private phone conversation.

I have now connected/tethered the Maze Alpha through Bluetooth to the iPad mini where it is functioning as the handheld data device which I answer calls on while the mini stays in my shoulder bag, (only being used when I need the larger screen and specific business apps, etc.). The hardware on the Maze is so good that it's a high-end device in its on right and compliments the iPad perfectly. This Bluetooth tethering is producing a double device situation which is working out splendidly. Of course both devices connect to wifi for the same purpose when wifi is available. Additionally it appears my monthly expense will be lowering as well for various reasons. I will try this for a month and see if it continues to work as well as it has the past couple of days.

Re: Maze Alpha

Thank you for your reply.

 

I called Rogers and seems that it will work well as a phone...which is what I would like.

So seemingly the others on the same network shouold work as well.

 

Please keep me posted on your progress.

Re: Maze Alpha

Hello,

 

One more question.

 

Do all the providers that use the Rogers network get the same reception on the same frequencies from all their towers.

Or, in other words, could I be in range of a Rogers tower that would work for my phone if I were a rogers subscriber but not work for me if I am signed up with Petrocan or Fido?

Thanks for all replies.

@Gairth

Can't comment on any questions about this phone, sorry. But...

 

When I was a SpeakOut customer (MVNO on the Rogers network) I had the same reception as my friend who was on a Rogers post paid plan at the time. However, that reference check was in 2013 or 2014 in a rural area, so things might have changed and YMMV depending on a wide variety of factors.

Re: Maze Alpha

Should be the same for all of their sub-brands. They only broadcast 302-720.
