1. what type of phones you have? 2. Is the second phone unlocked or a koodo phone? We can't provide a good answer unless we have enough info.

The phone is either not 3G capable or it's set to 2G (GSM) only.
First phone was an HTC One S This phone is a Nokia 5230, Unlocked Hong Kong phone. the phone shows 3g on the display.

What bands does it support 3G on? Koodo operates on 850/1900 MHz. The fact that it's only finding Rogers where you know there's Koodo service indicates that it's only seeing Rogers' 2G network.

From Nokia's website: WCDMA network: 900 MHz, 2100 MHz WCDMA max data speed DL: HSDPA - 3.6 Mbps  WCDMA max data speed UL: WCDMA - 384 kbps  GSM network: 850 MHz, 900 MHz, 1800 MHz, 1900 MHz GSM max data speed DL: EGPRS 296.0 kbps  GSM max data speed UL: EGPRS 177.6 kbps  Koodo uses WCDMA 850/1900, as I posted earlier. Looks like this phone is not compatible.
