I think the Koodo model doesn't support the 1700MHz frequency. Wind runs on 1700/2100MHz. N5 owners correct me if I'm wrong. 😛

according to GSM Arena: 3G bands HSDPA 800 / 850 / 1700 / 1900 / 2100 / 900 - North American version 4G bands LTE 700 / 800 / 850 / 1700 / 1900 / 2100 / 2600 - North American version I'm GUESSING that this means it would work on Wind's 1700 and 2100 MHz frequencies...I have the Nexus 5, is there a way on the phone to check what frequencie's it uses/supports? by the way, why would you want to switch from Koodo to Wind?

also, if you buy a Koodo Nexus 5, you'll have to get it unlocked away from Koodo to work on Wind CORRECTION - ignore that, the Nexus 5 comes unlocked.

Keep in mind that Koodo won't sell you the phone unless you are a customer subscribed to their service.
