Hello, i am currently in France, and i saw a cellphone who look durable and only cost 100 euro.

Here is the link:

I would like to know if this cellphone would work with Koodo, because since it's an european cellphone maybe it doesnt work in Canada, i know its something with network frequencies, but i'm not good enough to know how to search for it. Any help would be great!

Thanks you and have a nice day!

@matthew sider phones don't support every band thus they won't work in foreign countries that use Network frequencies that the phone doesn't support. It's a physical feature and doesn't have to do with software. No phone supports every single band. I know what you're getting at and it can be frustrating though. :(

I got all that, Matthew!!! What you said is that the Canadian cellular networks are out of date and old. There is no benefit when using CMDA, it's just got a weak signal. Telus is known for their bad signal.

Well done and although I might not agree with it all, you were crystal clear on what you said there :)

Matthew, Canadian wireless networks are many things (way too expensive comes to mind) but outdated and old they're not! They perform well and do a decent job covering our immense territory,

No the phone doesnt according to the link you posted.

The LTE is not "to". It works on 900 / 1800 / 2100 / 2600. Only those 4 frequencies for LTE

Which means you will have spotty LTE data through urban centers that have LTE coverage.

3G network at 850Mhz / 1900Mhz is the key to device compatibility with major Canadian Carriers.
