US Version Phone

Great Neighbour / Super Voisin

I am looking into buying a new phone from, a US retailer. I saw that the phones there are listed as "US Version." Will a "US Version" phone work in Canada without incurring any extra charges? If not, how can I make a "US Version" phone work, in Canada, without getting any extra fees?

If you are planning to order the American iPhone 14. It comes only with eSIM and PM eSIM does work on eSIM.

The Canadian iPhone 14 comes with a SIM tray and eSIM.

depends on make & model the cellphone is.

ALSO...make absolutely certain the phone is sold to you as unlocked.

@iamimmaculate46  - never extra fees around here. Things will only work for what you paid for, being prepaid and all.


Public Mobile uses the following frequency bands:

  • 4G LTE and LTE Advanced: 700 MHz, 850 MHz (band 5), 1900 MHz (band 2) and 2100 MHz downlink and 1700 MHz uplink (AWS).
  • HSPA: 850 MHz, 1900 MHz (UMTS).


Always good to check whether a phone will work with any provider, especially Public Mobile. Use more than one source to be sure.


  • 3G or WCDMA 2 (1900 MHz ) and 5 (850 MHz) bands  makes the phone compatible, which is needed for phone calls, and can also be used for text messaging and data.
  • LTE can be used for text messaging and data.  Data will work on the HSPA network.  



@iamimmaculate46 Some will and some won't  Even some Canadian version of phone might not work on PM


so, give us the exact model and we can try to check for you.  


FYI, you need to find phones that have the following bands, more the better
