I recently bought a new phone just for fun and maybe use it for watching and use it for a while so I wont be bored... I found out that it doesn't work with Koodoo I think. Can you please check, and tell me if there are different Sim cards that I can use for this phone (Doogee F5) ...

The Bands are
2G: GSM 850/900/1800/1900MHz
3G: WCDMA 900/2100MHz
4G: FDD-LTE 800/900/1800/2100/2600MHz

Thank you in advance.

Unforauntely you are right. That phone doesn't work on Koodo. It has nothing to do with have the proper sim card; It's that the phone doesn't have the frequency band that the Koodo network runs on

I recommend looking for a phone sold in North America. That way you know it'll work on at least some of the networks here. Very few won't. When you buy from Europe or Asia... You're making a riskier proposition.

For next time, if you're still interested only on Asian/European phones, you just need HSPA 850/1900 frequencies, at minimum. If you want faster data on top of that, then you'll also need LTE bands 1700/2100.

Ok, thnx. So this phone doesn't work in Canada then? So there's no network provider I can use for this phone?
