Koodo does not offer 2G
Uses 850 and 1900 for 3G
Uses 1700/2100 paired and 2600 for 4G/LTE

It does not appear this phone would work on Koodo.

There's no guarantees with 850 only. People with phones with one or the other that come on here seems to be a crapshoot. As for LTE, all you'll be able to get is data for sure until VoLTE is launched by Koodo.

[quote=rikkster]Consider checking this site: [url=http://willmyphonework.net/]http://willmyphonework.net/[/u...[/quote]For a Bluboo Maya on Koodo it suggests you'll get 3G only.
I would not recommend going for a phone that'll get you 3G only in Canada (poor resale value of device, poorer overall experience when using data).
Granted it's dirt cheap in price for the 32 GB storage / 3 GB RAM. Consider that you might pay only a little more for an in-market phone, but you'll get LTE for sure if you get a phone from Koodo. 2017 line-up is promising for new smartphones.

@Tobico I'm curious what is the model phone you're interested in?
