I want to purchase a Samsung Galaxy Note 8 N950FD 6GB Ram 64GB Dual Sim SIM FREE/ UNLOCKED phone from Hong Kong.
Solved! Go to Solution.
As per the specifications of the phone:
2G Network: - 850MHZ - 900MHZ - 1800MHZ - 1900MHZ
3G Network: - 850MHZ - 900MHZ - 1900MHZ - 2100MHZ
4G Network: - 700MHZ - (B20) 800MHZ - 850MHZ - 900MHZ - 1700MHZ - 1800MHZ - 1900MHZ - 2100MHZ - 2300MHZ - 2600MHZ
I am not sure it is compatible with Fido's following:
- Band 4 (1700/2100 MHz) and/or
- Band 7 (2600 MHz) and/or
- Band 17 (700 MHz)
I don't know the relationship between 2G, 3G and 4G with Band 4, 7 and17.
Does the phone needs to meet all the the above band 4, 7 and 17 to be able to fully function? Are there lots areas using band 17?
From what I can find, here and here, it looks like your device will be able to connect to our LTE network, as well as our 2G/3G network, as your device supports all the frequencies that we use for our network. It appears that this is dependent on using the first SIM card slot. From the information I've found it looks like the second SIM card slot only supports a 2G connection.
I hope this clears things up!
