Will an unlocked Samsung Galaxy A12 from AT&T work on Public Mobile?

 

I asked a similar question regarding AT&T's Galaxy A02s (Thank you for the answers).  I hope to have a phone I can use on either side of the border with only having to swap SIM cards.  Suggestions are welcomed as long as they aren't Motorola.

@sci92   Yes it will work

But make sure the phone is unlocked before trying to use on PM

 

 

Here  are the Bands the phone has ((SM-A125U)

GSM/EDGE (2G): 850, 900, 1800, 1900
HSPA/UMTS (3G/4G): 850, 1900, 1700, 2100
4G LTE (Domestic): 2, 4, 5, 12, 14, 29, 30, 66

 

Here are the bans used in PM

HSPA: 850 MHz, 1900 MHz (UMTS).
4G = B2 (1900), B4/B66 (2100 or 1700), B5 (850), B7 (2600), B12/B17 (700), B13 (700), B29 (700-Suppl. DL), B30 (2300)

If you don't mind me asking, where are you getting your information?  I am new to understanding which frequencies various telecommunication companies use and support.

 

Thank you.

As long as your phone can handle supported frequency by PM, you are good to go. Ideally, if you can put PM's SIM into your phone (from a friend/relative) to be 110% sure.

Supported frequencies can be found here"

There is a thing about At&t not supplying software updates unless you are a customer. I know this adversely affected an LG cell phone owner. It may be something you want to look into but it could have just been the fact it was an LG phone but at&t has some peculiarities in regards to updates with their phones.
