Will any new phone work with Koodo

Hello.  I notice Koodo doesn’t have any Google Pixel phones available in their shop, and I was wondering if I buy a Pixel 6 this fall directly from Google, could I easily transfer the sim card from old to new phone and go about my merry way, or do I have to make sure the Pixel 6 works with this network?  I vaguely remember something about certain phones not working with certain carriers. 

Thanks for any info.

If you buy it directly from Google Canada, it should work fine and fully compatible with Koodo.

You are right that certain phones do not work with particular carriers, since they may not support the correct bands and frequencies or they may have regional restrictions that are not used in North America. However, it is unlikely the Google Pixel falls under this category.

Thank you very much for your responses.  :slight_smile:
