I have two question regarding coverage:

1, I'm wondering if the new OnePlus Two (OP2) works on the Koodo network. Its specification are:

Connectivity:

(North America version)

GSM: 850, 900, 1800, 1900MHz

WCDMA: Bands 1/2/4/5/8

FDD-LTE: Bands 1/2/4/5/7/8/12/17


2, the same question, but for a different phone (Samsung galaxy S5 MINI). Its specs are:

Network: 2G GSM, 3G WCDMA, 4G LTE FDD

2G GSM: GSM850, GSM900, DCS1800, PCS1900

3G UMTS: B1(2100), B2(1900), B5(850), B8(900)

4G FDD LTE: B1(2100), B3(1800), B5(850), B7(2600), B8(900), B20(800)


Thanks

Koodo uses 
3G HSPA+ 850/1900 
4G LTE 1700/2100

Soooo.... 
1) 3G yes.  LTE yes
2) 3G yes.  LTE no

So does that mean that with number 2) I would be able to call/text, but cannot use data?

Means you can use data at 3G speeds but not LTE speeds

3G speeds aren't exactly slow either. I keep my LTE off and get by just fine.

I would suggest you take the phones into a shop and have them use an active SIM before committing. Remember Koodo cannot guarantee service of a device that they did not provide.

This is honestly a waste of time unless you don't know the phone's specs.
