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

Hi, 

 

I'm currently a PM client and I want to change phone. Howerver, I would like to know if this new phone I'm thinking of buying will work? http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16875606072  

 

Thank you and have a great day.

@JeanPierre23 In future you will get better response by posting a new thread rather than adding to an old one.

 

The link you provided goes nowhere for me. Post the make/model and we may be able to help. Also have a look at the very beginning of this thread and try checking your phone at WillMyPhoneWork.net - Check if your phone works on a ...

Hi @JeanPierre23 

 

If you go to the http://willmyphonework.net/ site mentioned in a previous post, you will find this phone under Huawei. Since PM isn't listed yet under the Canadian carriers, just use Telus (as PM is owed by Telus and uses the Telus network). Anyway, the site indicates that the phone is compatible with Telus 3G and 4G, so it should work.

 

Hope this helps.

@Luddite The phone is the Honor 5X model KIW-L24 from Huawei. It says on the newegg.ca website that it the network is compatible with: GSM networks including AT&T, T-Mobile, MetroPCS, Cricket, Straight Talk, AT&T Go Phone, Wal-Mart Family Mobile, Consumer Cellular, Net10 Wireless, Simple Mobile, GoSmart Mobile, Red Pocket Mobile, CampusSIMs, Ultra Mobile, EcoMobile, Lyca Mobile, Univision Mobile, Ting.

 

Here's the link again, maybe it will work this time.

Hi @JeanPierre23, yes the 5x has you covered for everything public mobile has to offer. Excellent choice and I was considering it recently too. I think I'm ultimately going to get a Moto X Play instead, but the Honor had great value!

Hi @JaK,

A slight clarification is in order.

In your 11:59 am EDT post, you stated that PM is not listed as a carrier at www.willmyphonework.net. I just rechecked the site, using my 2015 Moto G as an example. Public Mobile was indeed listed, between Primus and Rogers.

FYI.

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

@JeanPierre23 this is timely -- Android Authority compared the Honor 5X vs. the Blu Vivo 5 today:

It sounds like in most ways they prefer the Vivo 5, FYI.  If you're interested, Amazon.ca carries the Vivo 5 for $270 Canadian:  https://www.amazon.ca/BLU-Vivo-Smartphone-5-5-Inch-Unlocked-32GB-Plus/dp/B01AH1BXJI/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UT... or https://www.amazon.ca/BLU-Vivo-Smartphone-5-5-Inch-Unlocked-32GB-Plus/dp/B01AH1BXJI/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UT...  You can also get it from amazon.com, and probably other places (maybe newegg.ca?  I didn't look).
