Hi All

I would appreciate your advices

I am going to buy a new phone, not gonna to shop from careers, and use TAB, I really care about a phone features, so I am using this phone finder
http://www.gsmarena.com/search.php3

but please advice me, what network should I select to get compatible phones with koodo or Chatr or Wind
I have heard it must be 1700/2100 , but I when I drill down the 3G/4G networks ,There are many options that make me really confused

what should it be in 3G (UTMS )
and 4G ( Lte band # )

to be compatible with those careers,

how to know if a phone is compatible or not without checking its Imei with the career?

For 3G, its 850/1900 MHz (search both at the same time)
For 4G, its 1700/2100 MHz (serch both)

If you want 3G or 4G to work, you the phone must have both of the bands within that category

for 4G ,there are 2 options:

LTE band 4 (1700/2100)
LTE band 10 (1700/2100)

should I select both LTE band4 & also LTE band10  ?
