As long as it's unlocked and has the 850 and/or 1900 HSPA frequencies (1700 and/or 2100 is needed for LTE) then they'll work. Who's the original carrier of those devices? Or are they international models?

You can also get 10% discount on your plan for bringing in your own phone.

I live in Colombia and the carrier is TIGO, they are unlocked. The Note 2; only HSPA+ I will give to my wife and will keep the Note 3 N9005 which was the 2100 band you mention in your answer.
Thank you very much for your help it was driving me crazy they are very good phone and just don't want to leave them behind.

You won't get the greatest or most reliable LTE coverage since the N9005 model only has 1 of the 2 bands, but it will automatically fall back to H/H+ when it needs to, which is fine. :)

Jonathan can you help me choosing a cell that will give me the best LTE coverage. I like good ram, good processor, big screen and a nice camera. Can you give a hand?

To be honest, you already have it... you just have a different model because oyu got it overseas. Your LTE will be fine in most areas Telus/Koodo has coverage. Unless you'd be interested in getting the Galaxy S5 on a Medium Tab from Koodo?

Humm...don't really like the S5. What model of Note 3 can get in order to use it on Koodo network and take advantage of the LTE coverage?

The one you have will work with LTE from what I can tell. You'll be fine.
