Hello BenMandigo,

 

  Welcome to the forums!

 

  Judging by those specifications and those listed here, that phone would have all of the compatible bands/frequencies for 2G, '3G', and LTE (GSM Quad band includes 850 and 1900 MHz). You can verify the compatible bands here. There should be no issues accessing any of the **edit** Fido/Rogers** networks with that phone.

 

  In case you missed it, there is a note indicating that the phone can only be shipped within continental United States. If you intend to purchase the phone from somewhere else, you might consider verifying it has the same bands/frequencies as different versions might vary slightly.

 

  Hope this helps Smiley

 

Cheers
