Hi, everyone. I’m a Koodo customer that spends long periods in Spain and have a Spanish SIM (with Orange) that I put in my current unlock phone when I’m there and works perfectly. Now I’m thinking about getting a new phone with Koodo: a Samsung S4. Looking at the specs of the different versions in here http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Samsung_Galaxy_S4#Model_variants
I notice that the only differences between the version I would get with Koodo (SGH-I337M) and the version that I would get in Spain (GT-I9505) regarding the frequencies are two. The first one is the band 1700 Mhz (Spanish) for 4G instead the 1800 Mhz (Spanish) and I assume that it means that voice, 3G, etc. will work ok but in some situations 4G won’t work. Am I right? If that is the case, it’s good enough for me. The second difference, I don’t have any idea of how relevant it is. In the Spanish model (GT-I9505), regarding the 3G specs it indicates “UMTS / HSPA+” but in the Koodo version (SGH-I337M) says just “HSPA+” under the list of frequencies. Is this important? Does it mean I wouldn’t be able to use 3G with the Spanish carrier? Thank you in advance for your help.
