    It's not 2G speeds. It's 3G if you have a 3G phone, just a little slower cause Rogers slows it down a bit.

    oops, didn't realise I was in the Petro-Canada forum. My comment above applies to Rogers only (I can't edit it for some reason...)

    Does Petro not get 3G reception on 3G phones?

    No, Petro and SO only get 2G speeds. Rogers disabled 3G speeds for SO/Petro last year.

    Sorry, if this is been answered but I'm just a little confused with all the settings posted for the Androids and iPhones. I've come to the understand that I can buy a petro phone for cheap, take the sim out and place it in another phone. Top up the account and then apply for the $10 browsing feature. My question is, whether the setting posted above will work with any smart/dumb phone or a select few. My plan is to buy a unlocked phone with a decent screen and put the petro sim for mobile browsing. The phones i'm thinking about are the samsung wave and jet. Do I just enter the settings listed in this thread to get it to work, and i understand that's it's only 2g signal. Thank you

    Hi, are there any step-by-step guide for configuring mobile browsing on a Blackberry? Also, do apps like gmail work on it?

    Thanks.

    - Skype/VoIP will not work since the ports for those apps are blocked.
    - The speeds on Petro Can Mobility varies. But you will never experience anything faster than EDGE speeds. 200 something kbps from what I remember.
    - As for which phone is compatible, you really have to test it out yourself unless you have one that is similar to the users in this thread or in the threads under speakout.

    I have a petro-canada sim in my iphone. I was messing around with a Presidents Choice Sim and 3G. I put my Petro-Canada sim back in my phone. Did not change my APN at all and now I have a 3G connection with good speed. The speed is way fast then the old Edge connection I had.

    The only really difference other then speed is that I can play a youtube video now. But I can't download from the App store new. I could download small apps on edge

    I realize this thread started in 2009 but it seems like it was still going as late as last month so thats good news lol.

    Im wondering if anyone has a working android 2.2 phone using data on the petro can network still and if anyone has them working with apps, or even just browsing?

    My unlocked android device should be here next week, but im curious if anyone else has it successfully working.

    I had an S60 phone on it. Found the settings somewhere (maybe on this thread) and did some fiddling. I think I even got browsing to work on Opera Mobile instead of the stock browser on the phone.

    Should be doable...

    not sure about apps and stuff.

    PC has Nokia C3 now. It's S60 so maybe a good choice for people use this feature.

    What are the Presidents Choice APNs? I can only get Edge with Petro Can, yet I have a 3G phone (Nexus One).
