Will the Zenfone Max work on the Koodo network? I believe it will just want to be sure. These are the specs - 2G GSM : 850MHz/900MHz/1800MHz/1900MHz 3G WCDMA :2100MHz(1)/900MHz(8) TD-SCDMA: 2100MHz(34)/1900MHz(39) 4G :FDD-LTE: 2100MHz(1) /1800MHz(3) TDD-LTE: 2600MHz(38) /1900MHz(39)/2300MHz(40)/2500MHz(41)/(2555-2655MHz only).

According to the original specs in the original post, the phone will not work. Unless those specs are incorrect.

Ned specified the phone having WCDMA 900/2100, while Koodo requires 850/1900.

Possibly the most useful website ever. Especially if you're traveling to another country and using a local sim. Helped me when I went to Australia

I suggest picking up a regular Zenfone 2 or a Zenfone 2 Laser, unless you currently own a Zenfone Max.

Hi Ned!

You can confirm here http://koo.do/1aU1u0o if you have the IMEI of the device. Hope that helps :)
