I did call Rogers and they said there is only one tower so limited coverage. Do you know where the tower is located???

TIA

hi

Hopefully a local will chime in. In the meantime this is a link to cell towers in Canada - www.ertyu.org/steven_nikkel/cancellsites.html

and, Yellowknife is in NWT if you are going to YK (the Yukon) you may want to post on the Whitehorse or Yukon forum.

i was referring to Yellowknife. Sorry for the confusion. Rogers said they just have the one tower so it didn't sound promising.

Curiously the link doesn't show any towers in Yellowknife so I am not hopeful.

YK is the common acronym for Yellowknife. YT is actually the abbreviation of Yukon Territory.

Rogers phones will work on a small third-party network called Ice Wireless. If you look at their coverage map - http://www.icewireless.com/about-us/#4 - you'll see where there is roaming coverage for your Rogers phone. I don't know to what extent it is covered though (voice, data, voice and data, etc). Best call them.
