Fido uses Bell's analog network in Ontario.

I believe they use Bell's (Bell Mobility) lines in the east and Telus
in the west.

Specifically, they are using the "B" network, which consists of
the incumbent telcos in each of the provinces. That is, Telus, Sasktel,
MT&T, Bell, Aliant plus some other smaller ones. In other words, not
Rogers.

My 6190 would display "Analog Roaming" when it was using Aliant,
but simply said "Roaming" when using Bell. My 6340 always says "Analog"
regardless of which carrier it is using.

In Québec, Bell Mobility doesn't cover all the territory. If you go from
Montyreal to Québec city along the St-Lawrence River, you will be "roaming"
onto QuébecTel territory, and then back into Bell Mobility. So if your phone's
"home" analogue service is with Bell, then you'd see roaming even inside
Québec, and of course, whenever you roamed outside of Bell's territory.

I *assume* that for folks out west, their phones are setup to have Telus as
the main network.

Bell's in central Canada, Aliant's in the east, Telus' in BC and AB, SaskTel
Mobility's in SK and MTS Mobility's in MB, as well as NorthWesTel's in the
Territories. Telus has no native coverage between the Saskatchewan-Alberta
border and southeastern Ontario.

That's a US GSM carrier. I picked up both Voicestream and AT&T in
Niagara Falls last weekend.

The SE Z200 is a digital only cell phone (no analog). If you were close to
the US border than you were picking up an American AT&T WIRELESS cell site.
If you were picking up a Canadian signal it would show ROGERS or ROGERS
AT&T.

The Siemens M55's firmware shows "ROGERS" only. The interesting one is
T-MOBILE which has many incarnation in the long list of possible GSM networks
in the M55's firmware.

Telus also provides analog in parts of Quebec, the result of their
purchase of QuebecTel Mobilite a few years ago.
