I cannot find any specifications on what frequencies this phone runs on.

From what i found it said it works on all GSM but not 3G. By the sounds of it, it is a 2G phone which means it would work only with Rogers.

It should work with Fido too, since they're owned by Rogers.

Hi shimaa, have you just went ahead and tried a koodo Micro SIM in it, it won't break anything just trying the SIM Card in it?
