help : Confused to purchase a compatilble phone

Hi All

I would appreciate your advices

I am going to buy a new phone, not gonna to shop from careers, and use TAB, I really care about a phone features, so I am using this phone finder

but please advice me, what network should I select to get compatible phones with koodo or Chatr or Wind
I have heard it must be 1700/2100 , but I when I drill down the 3G/4G networks ,There are many options that make me really confused

what should it be in 3G (UTMS )
and 4G ( Lte band # )

to be compatible with those careers,

how to know if a phone is compatible or not without checking its Imei with the career?

For 3G, its 850/1900 MHz (search both at the same time) For 4G, its 1700/2100 MHz (serch both) If you want 3G or 4G to work, you the phone must have both of the bands within that category
many thanks Ahmad
for 4G ,there are 2 options:

LTE band 4 (1700/2100)
LTE band 10 (1700/2100)

should I select both LTE band4 & also LTE band10  ?
