I'll explain to you how it works.

You're phone has these bands

1) WCDMA/HSDPA/HSUPA = 900/900/2100MHz
2) GSM/GPRS = 850/900/1800/1900MHz

What's interesting to note is that here we have WCDMA or GSM

Now you need to look at the big list from the other post 

Telus (including Koodo) 

2G 
CDMA 850/1900 
EVDO 850/1900 

3G (and fake 4G) 
HSDPA 850/1900 
HSPA+ 850/1900 
UMTS 850/1900 
WCDMA 850/1900 
1x EV-DO CDMA2000 

4G (called 4G+) 
LTE 1700/2100 

Bell (including Virgin Mobile, PC Mobility) 

2G 
CDMA 850/1900 
EVDO 850/1900 

3G (and fake 4G) 
HSDPA 850/1900 
HSPA+ 850/1900 
UMTS 850/1900 
WCDMA 850/1900 
1x EV-DO CDMA2000
 
4G 
LTE 1700 

Rogers (including Fido, Petro-Canada Mobility) 

2G 
GSM 850/1900 
GPRS 850/1900 
EDGE 850/1900 

3G (and fake 4G) 
HSDPA 850/1900 
HSPA+ 850/1900 
UMTS 850/1900 
WCDMA 850/1900
 
4G 
LTE 1700

Now with that in mind you need to find the frequencies of your phone in here and you'll see with what company it will work!

For example, with your phone you would need to go with Rogers because it has the GSM band of your phone!

Your service will be spotty at best because you're missing the 850 band. It's best to have both 850 and 1900. I recommend a different device to use with Koodo.

With smartphones you used did you have a screen protector on it and a Case?
