Looking to replace an Asus Zenphone 3 with a shattered screen. On the $25 plan. Would like a reasonably priced phone that can pick up the Telus LTE and 5G bands. In the past I was able to see a list of compatible phones, but now I cannot find it. So can someone provide a list of compatible phones. Also, I thought PM sold phones, but I cannot find the link. Does PM sell phones?
I see that Telus/PM use 5G bands N66(1700) and N78(3500). The Moto edge 2022 has N1(2100), N41(2500) and N78(3500). Does it matter that the phone is only compatible with the N78(3500) band?
Telus have the 2022 Edge listed for sale on their site:
The specs say it has VoLTE. I suppose I have to buy the phone from Motorola, then check the IMEI. Is there a hard rule that Telus will only accept IMEI's from phones they sell?
@Yurong , you can use this site to check if you have a device IMEI. I have another warning, I had a device which had functional VoLTE the first couple of months after the feature went live and out of the blue I lost it and have never been able to recover it. I am not saying my situation is the norm, you need to know it can happen and when it does, support has no solution. I expect to retire this device before the 3G network is taken out of service, I can live with this problem.
@Yurong , getting a compatible phone is not so challenging. Pretty much anything sold in the North American market will work. The problem is with VoLTE compatibility. Telus maintains a pretty short whitelist. Without VoLTE, your phone will have a 2025 death clock when the 3G network is scheduled to be removed from service.
So this phone should work?
yes it will. Major phone sold in Canadian market will work in PM. And this Moto edge is for Canadian market and it will work
