Hello, I just ordered a sim card thinking that my phone was compatible. My phone's model is Huawei p30lite(MAR-LX1A) I'm an international student from turkey and I have no idea if my phone would work. I just need a working phone number, I don't even need internet.
Thank you!

The infromation I searched for on the internet says that this phone should work at Pubilc Mobile assuming that your device isn't locked to a specific carrier.  Huawei does sell a variant of the P30 Lite that would have better frequency compatbility in Canada, but the important thing is your device supporting UMTS 850MHz and UMTS 1900Mhz as voice service wouldnt' be possible without those.

PM really needs to do something about their silly spam filter. There goes another post🤬

@bacon123   Yours is a Europe variant of the phone.  According to the search, it should work

 

Since you have ordered it, if you cannot cancel the order, then just wait for it to come and borrow a Telus/Koodo/PM SIM from friends to confirm  🙂

 

But if you can still cancel, I would be more conservative and look for a North American variant of the phone.  

 

But again, all the research seems to confirm it will work

At least for me , after I hit the "jackpot" (filter) , it followed me for a good 2 weeks of so.  But after that, it disappears for some time.  

 

Tried to report to PM  but I doubt they did anything.  Honest, I have a feeling they don't know what's wrong either.

Your Huawei Mar-Lx1a Europe spec is:

GSM frequencies:850/900/1800/1900
Standard UMTS:850/900/1700/1900/2100

 Compare this to @computergeek541 

frequencies to see if it is compatible.

If it is a Canadian model, it should be compatible.

@softech  PM community manager needs to log into the administration end of Khoros program. It's all just buttons and thresholds.

 

In my option PM community manager is just lazy and puts us all in the general spam filter when clearly there is a fix according to Khoros. 

 

PM should adjust the user settings of accounts that are constantly posting. So that we are not affected by the spam filter. Would save alot of time and frustrations but clearly PM doesn't care.

 

Here's a link from Khoros forums talking about the spam filter. The one part of someone post (they posted in a spoiler) but what sticks out is this. You can make users immune from all spam grading by granting them the "Bypass automatic spam rejection" permission.

Apparently pm is monitoring the announcement thread for comments, glitches and fixes for the community. Perhaps you want to post this settings adjustment there....of course I think it has a frozen fluffy water particles shaped in a sphere's chance in helium of getting fixed but you never know.

Is the phone unlocked?  In order to use Public Mobile's SIM card, your cellphone needs to be unlocked otherwise it won't work.  So you might want to check with Huawei.  I don't use Huawei phones (after what China did to Canada and is still doing to Canada, I never will) so I am not sure how their phones work.
