Question

Will this phone work on Koodo network?


I am about to buy the unlocked phone but the only concern is if this phone will work on Koodo network.

2G: GSM B2/B3/B5/B8 (1900/1800/850/900)
3G: WCDMA B1/B8 (2100/900)
4G: FDD-LTE B1/B3/B5/B7/B20 (2100/1800/850/2600/800)
      TDD-LTE B38/B40/B41 (2600/2300/2500)

No, this phone won't work with Koodo. You are looking for: 3G: 850 & 1900 LTE: Band 4 (1700/2100)

thank you very much! But I have a followup question.
This website checks device compatibility and says this phone seems fine on Telus network.

It says Telus uses other bands. Am I seeing wrong information?

The P8 actually supports 3G 850&1900 , your post didn't say it. So talk and text will be fine and 3G is ok
Apart from band 4, Telus in some areas use extra bands of 2,5,7. So your phone can get some LTE signals but not  guaranteed.
