There is no option to buy Unlocked BB Q10 online from ca.blackberry.com


There is no such a thing as Unlocked Q10 in ca.blackberry.com. However, there is an option to buy unlocked Q10 or Z10 in us.blackberry.com. So, if I purchase unlocked BB Q10 online from us.blackberry.com will it work on Koodo without any problem?

Yes just make sure to get the right model that's fully compatible with Koodo's frequencies. Koodo uses HSPA 850 / 1900 and LTE band 4 2100mhz

It says "Only compatible with GSM carriers, including AT&T and T-Mobile". So looks like its compatible with Koodo and other carriers.

Yeah generally speaking AT&T is the same as Telus/Koodo so you should be good to go!

@paul, the lte band here is aws, 1700. Not 2100. As Chad said, if you pick up the sqn100-1, it will work.

Actually, AWS is 1700/2100.

Well, yes, the down link portion is 2100. But you can't simply say a phone should have 2100, as it won't work without 1700 uplink here in Canada. I think it's less confusing to say it need 1700 (which by default has 2100) instead of 2100, which most overseas use for hspa.

I agree, which is why I always say both 1700/2100. Avoids any confusion.
