If I buy this phone:

https://www.amazon.ca/LG-UNLOCKED-LG-H873-Canadian-Supported/dp/B0727RZGGQ/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qi...

and take the SIM card out of my current Koodo HTC One M8, will it work right away or do I need to do something else to it? Do I need to notify Koodo? Will this phone work with 4G LTE and all that stuff?

Koodo is selling it for over $800 and Amazon has it brand new for $519. Please let me know. Desperate to upgrade my phone!

Thanks.

Here't the rundown on G6 models:

The Canadian, AT&T or T-Mobile versions should be fine as long as they are unlocked.

Hi David,

I am not sure where did you get the $800. The LG G6 is selling for $100 on Medium Tab (0$ on large Tab and $220 on small Tab)  with Koodo. https://www.koodomobile.com/phones/lg-g6 The total price should be 100+360 (medium tab) = $460. (plus the rate plan each month). And that is the price for new customer. Existing customer might have some extra discount.

You don't need to notify Koodo, you could take out the SIM and put in other phone (as long as the SIM size is correct). Regarding the amazon phone, only the seller can confirm if that phone was unlocked and fully compatible with Koodo/Telus. Normally it should be ok.

$460 from Koodo with warranty is a better deal than many refurb units floating around. It's also a real bargain compared to it's neweer replacement G7 thin if you don't need the latest shiny thing.
