Will my phone work properly (I mean Texting, Calling and DATA)

I am looking to buy a phone in another country, and I need to make sure tha the my phone will be compatable with FIDO network (texing, calling and DATA). Can anyone help me figure out  whether theses phones will be compatible? Thanks.

 

Phone 1:

  • 2G:GSM 850/900/1800/1900MHz
  •  3G:WCDMA 850/900/1900/2100MHz
  • GPRS/EDGE/DC-HSPA+(42Mbps)

     

Phone 2

  • 2G: GSM / CDMA1x 850/900/1800/1900MHz 
  •  3G: WCDMA 850/900/1900/2100MHz CDMA2000 800/1900MHz

Phone 3 

GSM/GPRS/EDGE(850/900/1800MHz),WCDMA/HSPA+(850/900/2100MHz)

 

 

Phone 4 

GSM/GPRS/EDGE(900/1800MHz),TD-SCDMA/HSPA(Band A/F)

We use the following;

 

LTE: 2100 MHz and 2600 MHz

GSM & HSPA+:  850 MHz nad 1900 MHz

 

So phone number 4 won't work.

Hey everyone!

 

Although this thread is quite old, I'd like to add a little update since I came across it  

 

Things to Know

Your device must be compatible with the Fido network, which uses GSM, UMTS, HSPA and HSPA+ at 850 MHz and 1900 MHz. To access LTE network, the phone must be compatible with:
700 MHz on Band 17;
1700/2100 MHz on Band 4;
2600 MHz on Band 7.
How to find this information? Refer to the manufacturer's official website.

If you are unsure of how to check the frequencies your device supports, try the manufacturer's official website and search for the specifications for your particular phone/smartphone model;
If your device is locked, it needs to be unlocked by the original carrier it was bought from.
If your device is not compatible, consult our latest selection of phones and devices;
To use your unlocked device, you must have an active Fido SIM card:
