Will this phone work with Fido? Sony Xperia XZ2 H8276

Hi guys!

 

Just wondering if anyone can tell if this phone will work with Fido?

 

Sony Xperia XZ2 H8276


UMTS HSPA+: 800 (Band VI), 800 (Band XIX), 850 (Band V), 900 (Band VIII), 1700 (Band IV), 1900 (Band II), 2100 (Band I) MHz
GSM GPRS/EDGE: 850, 900, 1800, 1900 MHz
LTE Bands: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 12, 13, 17, 19, 20, 26, 28, 29, 32, 38, 39, 40, 41, 66
Wi-Fi® 2.4 GHz/5 GHz

 

Thank you!!!

  Judging by those specifications, that phone would have all of the compatible bands/frequencies for 2G, '3G', and LTE. You can verify the compatible bands/frequencies here

 

  While the phone should work on the networks, you should note certain features (ie Wifi-calling and voLTE) are only available with supported devices (see here). Since Sony devices are not offered by Fido, it's unlikely those features will work. Fido has recently allowed those features on certain grey-market non-Fido devices (Samsung Galaxy devices newer than S8 and some LG devices). However, Sony phones are not be considered grey-market devices and would not likely be supported.

 

Hope this helps 😀

 

Cheers
