Does anyone know if Lenovo A806 work with a Koodo SIM card? The phone's frequencies are: 2G: GSM 900/1800/1900MHz GSM: B3/B8 3G: WCDMA 900/2100MHz WCDMA: B1/B2/B8 4G: B1/B3/B41/1800/2100/2600MHz

Hi Gent,

It looks like that phone won't be fully compatible with Koodos network as they run on HSPA/WCDMA - 850/1900 and LTE 1700/2100 frequencies. You might get very spotty LTE coverage as that phone only supports the 2100 frequency for LTE, no guarantee that it will work unfortunately. When it comes to the 2G frequencies that the phone supports, it will not work with Koodo in that case as they don't use a 2G network.

Hope that helps

Where did you get that spec sheet? 2G is GSM, 3G is WCDMA, 4G is a misnomer (true 4G is LTE). In any case, you're missing the 850 3G band. I'd stay away from this phone in Canada.
