Rogers has more experience with 3G technology and the iPhone since they were the first carrier to offer it Nationwide in Canada and were the first carrier to launch the iPhone in Canada. With Telus and Bell you will need to leave on "Enable 3G" as the HSPA (3G) chip used in the iPhone doesn't support EVDO (Telus and Bell use EVDO instead of EDGE for the slower data network). This is unlike Rogers and Fido (owned by Rogers and uses their towers) in Canada that have a HSPA+ network that is backwards compatible with HSPA and EDGE.
Rogers History: GSM (GPRS > EDGE > EDGE+ > HSPA > HSPA+).
Telus/Bell History: CDMA (GPRS > EVDO) then several years later to GSM (HSPA+).
