If I'm not mistaken Rogers is a GSM carrier. And the 9630 is a dual band device. So the answer is yes, but will only reach EDGE speed.

But don't let that scare you away from it when it comes out. If I recall correctly Roger's said they want to expand their 3G network in time for the 2010 Olympics.

Rogers is a GSM carrier, however I believe the 9xxx denotes a 3G device.

Ok, let me clear up all of the mis-information in this thread.

1. The 9630 is primarily a CDMA device for CDMA carriers such as Bell, Telus, Verizon and Sprint.
2. Rogers is a GSM/UMTS provider, and will not sell the device.
3. The device is tri-mode, and will provide service on the following bands: CDMA 850/1900, GSM/GPRS/EDGE 850/900/1800/1900, UMTS/HSPA 2100.
4. The device will work on Rogers up to EDGE speeds, it will not work on Rogers 3G as it does not have the correct bands for it. Rogers operates 3G on 850/1900 like at&t in the US.
5. The device will work on 3G in countries that operate 3G service on the 2100 band (i.e., not N. America and most of S. America).
6. 9xxx is not an indicator of being a 3G device. The 7130e, 8830, 8330, 8130, and 8230 are all CDMA 3G devices in addition to the 9530 and 9630, while the 8707 is a 3G device for GSM-based carriers in addition to the 9000 and upcoming 9520.
7. xx30 devices are generally for CDMA carriers (with the exception of the 7130c/g), and they only have GSM for world roaming capability.

I hope this helps.
