Hi, just wondering if this phone can work with Koodo network...
LG G3 D858:
(1) FD-LTE : 2100(B1) / 1800(B3) / 2600(B7) MHz; TD-LTE : 2600(B38) / 1900(B39) / 2300(B40) / 2600(B41) MHz; WCDMA : 850 / 900 / 1900 / 2100 MHz; TD-SCDMA : 1900 / 2000 MHz; GSM : 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900 MHz, and
(2) GSM : 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900 MHz.

Thanks a lot for any help...

Yeah I think it will work considering it is unlocked!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Koodo_Mo...

"Mobile services provided by Koodo use Telus Mobility's CDMA, HSPA+ and LTE networks. CDMA devices, however, have been discontinued by Koodo outside of Northern Ontario and Manitoba.[9] Koodo Mobile's CDMA and HSPA networks use the 850 MHz and 1900 MHz frequencies while their LTE network uses 1700/2100 MHz (AWS)."

Have a nice day.

I have the LG G855, it lacks the 1700 MHZ so LTE does not work, only 3G works

as said earlier, LTE network uses 1700/2100 MHz , the phone does have 2100 mhz, so does it mean it can still connect to the LTE network?

No, in order for AWS-1 (LTE) to work, the two frequencies 1700/2100 MHz are paired. The 1700 MHz side is the uplink, while the 2100 MHz side is the downlink; (1710 – 1755 MHz and 2110 – 2155 MHz). By itself, the UMTS 2100 MHz band (Band 1), uses a different set of uplink and downlink frequencies, (1920 - 1980 MHz ~ 2110 - 2170 MHz), which would not be compatible with Koodo's network.
