Hi Support,

I'd like to buy a Huawei Honor V9 from aliexpress for my mom who is visiting me in Canada. Since she is only here temporarily, I'd like to get a Koodo prepaid plan for her (no data is needed as she is only going to make phone calls and send text messages).

Can anyone please let me know if Huawei Honor V9 works with Koodo for call/text message purposes only? I understand 3G and 4G data might not work with this brand, though.

Thanks!

Terry

This phone will work on 3G but not 4G. So for the purpose of making phone calls, you are good!

Yes text messages are fine as well! You will also be able to use data, just on the 3G network.

LTE data on Koodo requires the phone to have access to B4.

I know it might be inappropriate to share the link here, but Huawei Honor V9's spec can be found on this page https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Original-Huawei-Honor-V9-Mobile-Phone-5-7-inch-4GB-RAM-64GB-ROM-2K-S...    would that help identify if it works with Koodo for call/text message purpose only? 

P.S: Let me know if sharing external link is not allowed, I can remove the link if so.
