Is this phone compatible with koodoo?


Hello, i am currently in France, and i saw a cellphone who look durable and only cost 100 euro. Here is the link: http://www.gsmarena.com/archos_45_helium_4g-6056.php I would like to know if this cellphone would work with Koodo, because since it's an european cellphone maybe it doesnt work in Canada, i know its something with network frequencies, but i'm not good enough to know how to search for it. Any help would be great! Thanks you and have a nice day! -Frederic

@matthew sider phones don't support every band thus they won't work in foreign countries that use Network frequencies that the phone doesn't support. It's a physical feature and doesn't have to do with software. No phone supports every single band. I know what you're getting at and it can be frustrating though. 😞

I got all that, Matthew!!! What you said is that the Canadian cellular networks are out of date and old. There is no benefit when using CMDA, it's just got a weak signal. Telus is known for their bad signal. Well done and although I might not agree with it all, you were crystal clear on what you said there 🙂

Matthew, Canadian wireless networks are many things ([i]way too expensive comes to mind) but outdated and old they're not! They perform well and do a decent job covering our immense territory,

Because Koodo uses Koodo uses 3G HSPA+ 850/1900 4G LTE 1700/2100

And the phone don't support those frequencies?

The phone is LTE 900 to 2600 so 1700 and 2100 is beetween the two

No the phone doesnt according to the link you posted. The LTE is not "to". It works on 900 / 1800 / 2100 / 2600. Only those 4 frequencies for LTE

but in the LTE frequency of the phone you also have 2100, wich you said was one of the two koodoo frequencies

Which means you will have spotty LTE data through urban centers that have LTE coverage.
3G network at 850Mhz / 1900Mhz is the key to device compatibility with major Canadian Carriers.
