Re: How do I know if my phone will work on the Public Mobile network?

Hi:

i was nervous about it too.  The only way to really know would be to get the sim card.  It took me a couple of tries but it was an issue with virgin mobile.  Since then I have not had any issues and the service is excellent.  My bill has been slashed in half.

@Vaughn74, no issues. That phone is fully supported.

Re: How do I know if my phone will work on the Public Mobile network?

Hi - do the specs quoted in the 3 year old first message still apply?

 

  • For 3G use (UMTS/HSPA): 850MHz/1900MHz bands
  • For 4G/LTE use: 1700MHz/2100MHz bands
  • For 4G/LTE use: 700 MHz band

Specifically, I have a senior relative in Quebec who wants to buy a Jethro SC330v2 (https://www.jethroshop.com/product-page/sc330), which claims support for "3G WCDMA 850/900/1900 Mhz". Any ideas?

3G WCDMA 850/1900 is all you need for talk and text. Data works as well, but slower than 4G LTE.
