Telus is koodo and koodo is telus.
how come koodo customers can't use telus network where available?
I'm I thompson, manitoba and I'm using a cdma phone because my samsung galaxy note 2 does not work here, but telus cover age reaches here?
I just saw so it on the internet.

or koodo uses different frequency?

THANKS

With the Galaxy Note 2, that device does not connect to the CDMA network. What you'd be connected to is either Koodos HSPA network or LTE network which is entirely different from the older CDMA network and is not compatible with it either. Hope that helps answer your question. :)

Thompson, MB is WAY North of Telus' HSPA coverage so Koodo won't get anything on a Note 2. The grey "Digital PCS" coverage area is CDMA.

The 3G coverage is a bit out-of-date though. It actually looks more like this: http://help.koodomobile.com/coverage-...

I got that figured it out.


thanks


now, how do i activate my cdma phone manually, without mts or rogers wireless picking up?


I have to use someone phone or payphone to talk for 30 to 1 hour with koodo tecs.


thanks
