This phone appears that it will work on 3g on the koodo/telus towers

This device is not compatible with any 3G or higher carrier in Canada.

I'm not so sure about those 3G numbers. 2G is a dead issue in Canada except for some older Rogers equipment. You can always drop by a boutique and check it out.

Then nope, it should work on 2g as long as the network type is set to wcdma/gsm auto with either Fido or Rogers

Dual SIM means that it will only look for data on the "main" SIM, second SIM is severely restricted. Designed for frequent travellers with a home base or business people who want to handle a second line from the family and other personal calls.

Bob, that second sim limitation may not be true anymore. My blue hd is dual sim and both slots are identical

For 2g it's your only choice in Canada.
