Most sellers won't have that information. And you can't 100%rely on mfgr specs because they build...Use the link Bob gave to find out. If it doesn't say, look for 850/1900mhz for 3G and ideally 2700/2100 or 2600mhz for lte. You can get 700, 850, 1900 in select markets but we are not aware where exactly the last three are deployed.

Jonathan I's answer is all the OP needs to know, as well as that the phone is not blocked (stolen, etc) using Koodo's tool. OP's supplier apparently can't translate those private numbers into frequencies.

Anyway, I used my secret decoder ring (google) and found the information. Was trying to be helpful.

Thank you very much.  I did check that site first but the phone I was looking for wasn't listed yet.  I e-mailed them but no response so I posted here.  Thanks for all the info.

What phone are you looking at? Edit: looking at the specs you posted you should be just okay for 3G service. However your missing the 1900mhz band in the 3G range so there may be times when y this phone simply does not have service.

D''oh! I saw 2100 and registered 1900. It probably won't work on 3G then. 1900 is needed for the uplink frequency. D/U bands can be on the 850 or the 1900 but I believe that Canadian carriers separate it entirely and you need both to get service.

Well darn I didn't know that. I was always of thinkin that you had to at least have the 850mhz band as a minimum. Hmmm

That phone will work on 3G but not on LTE as i believe Koodo runs on LTE AWS 1700/2100 meaning it needs both 1700 and 2100 to run

Hi,

I don't full understand. When we look at chinese phones, they always list 2g, 3g and LTE, but someone here said that we don't have 2g in canada. Do does that mean that the 2g frequencies are useless here, or will they work but in 3g?

I'm looking to know if one of these phones will work with koodo. I don't really care about LTE, since it uses battery I often disable it, 3g if fine for my use.

None of the phones you listed are fully compatible with Koodo. The first will work with LTE-a in certain areas. The second partial 3G and LTE-a in certain areas. The third partial 3G and LTE-a in certain areas.

You'll need HSPA 850/1900. As for LTE, you want 1700/2100. I think that phone should be fine but I'm not sure what #s correspond to that.
