These are the band's given to me by gsmarena for the OPPO F1s:
3G bands: HSDPA 850 / 900 / 2100
4G bands: LTE band 1(2100), 3(1800), 5(850), 7(2600), 8(900), 20(800), 28(700), 38(2600), 39(1900), 40(2300), 41(2500) - Global

You can take advantage of the 850 for 3G but are missing 1900. And you can use Band 7 for LTE-a but don't have Band 4 for LTE.
This is probably why you are experiencing trouble.

There is simply no guarantees of service without both 850 and 1900mhz for 3G. Not until Koodo launches VoLTE. You will need another phone.

If you absolutely insist on using this phone then you'll be forced to use VoIP services for making calls.
