Hi Guys,
I wonder if a phone with these band will work on koodo's network? (In Québec, if it can make any differences)
Band:
2G: GSM 850/900/1800/1900MHz
3G: WCDMA /UMTS 850/2100MHz

Thank you

2G : no Koodo service at all. Only Rogers has some legacy 2G in Canada AFAIK.

3G: 850/1900 is Koodo's range.

Looks like you are out of luck.

Are you sure of those specs? It's unusual for dual-band 3G to have a 850/2100 combo. Usually it's 850/1900 or 900/2100.

Having 850 will give you some coverage but it's not ideal. If you already have it there's no harm in trying but if you're interested in buying it, I'd skip it.

Regarder le tableau ci-haut / Look at the table above

3G: 850/1900  4G (LTE): 1700/2100

If you are buying something from an independent seller, look for AT&T compatible. They are a well-known carrier in the US.

Bonne chance !

AT&T uses the same specs as Bell/Telus/Koodo. Avoid Sprint, Verizon and other carriers.

As long as the AT&T handset is unlocked, you should be good.
