Bell Mobility GSM Users Encounter Local Area's with No Service

Bell Mobility GSM Users Encounter Local Area

Urban users of Bell Mobility GSM / HSPA+ phones find Black Holes (in service areas)!

It sucks, to buy a new cell phone and not be able to use it anywhere you want.

This is a problem that many new users of Bell Mobility’s GSM (HSPA+) phones are currently experiencing. Although most users of Bell’s GSM phones (like the iPhone) get superb service in their home service areas, many users lose their service when they leave their local area.

Why? Keep reading…

Some Bell Mobility GSM Users Left without a Signal (Bell HSPA+ Network)

Bell Mobility GSM Users Go Without Mobile Serice Across Large Areas of Canada

Bell Mobility GSM Users Go Without Mobile Serice Across Large Areas of Canada

Bell Mobility users have been eating up new HSPA devices like the iPhone and BlackBerry? BoldTM. But many of Bell’s HSPA early adopters are encountering some significant problems.

One major problem is that Bell?s network does not mirror its existing network coverage. Currently, there are large areas of Canada where users of Bell iPhones and other new Bell Mobility GSM devices will be without network service, even though other Bell devices (non-HSPA) would work.

For Bell, which currently operates three different wireless networks, this issue is not new. At present, Bell users across Canada connect to Bell through their 1xRTT network (first-generation) or EVDO (second-generation) networks. In markets with higher populations, both networks are available on top of each other. In more rural areas, however, only the 1xRTT network is available. This network issue poses no problem for Bell’s existing CDMA users because both the older 1x phones and the newer EVDO phones both have one common denominator: both operate on Bell’s slower 1x network.

But users of today’s HSPA phones do not have the luxury of defaulting to Bell’s 1x standard. So when an iPhone user leaves Bell’s HSPA network, his shiny new iPhone turns into a very attractive paperweight.

So beware: if you are planning to drive across the country with your Bell HSPA device to take in the 2010 Olympics in Vancouver, expect no phone usage throughout rural Ontario, in 99% of Manitoba, and in all of Saskatchewan. This could mean days and days with no cellular service.

Interesting… The new HSPA devices now allow Bell users to use their phones in over 200 countries worldwide. At home, however, many could experience service issues while on the road.
