Hey cskzhi!

 

We use 850 MHz and 1900 MHz for our for our 2G and 3G network and 700 MHz on Band 17, 1700/2100 MHz on Band 4, and 2600 MHz on Band 7 for our LTE network. 

 

From what I can tell, based on the specification you've given us, you should be able to connect to our 3G network, however, this depends on which frequency, 850 MHz or 1900 MHz, is used in your area since your phone will only have access to the 1900 MHz frequency. 

 

Hope this helps. Smiley

Hello Cskzhi,

 

  Welcome to the forums!

 

  I would agree with FidoAmandaN. According to those specifications, that phone only has one compatible '3G' band/frequency. While the phone should work on that network, coverage would be limited and will depend on the bands/frequencies of the surrounding towers. 

 

  Hope this helps Smiley

 

Cheers

You didn't see the thread at the very top called "Will my phone work on the Fido network?"

 

Or the other one slightly below with almost the exact same title as you named yours?

 

If you did, I'm wondering why:

- you didn't think you would find the answer in either one (especially the first), and;

- you didn't think the second one was a good place to ask your question.
