IF CAN'T FIND MODEL OF PHONE WHEN GET START

HOW CAN ONE KNOW IF IT'S COMPATIBLE WITH PUBLIC MOBILE. MINE IS A HUAWEI K11

Mayor / Maire

Re: IF CAN'T FIND MODEL OF PHONE WHEN GET START

@WW29
Public Mobile works on following frequencies:
• For 3G use (UMTS/HSPA): 850MHz/1900MHz bands
• For 4G/LTE use: 1700MHz/2100MHz bands
• For 4G/LTE use: 700 MHz band

You need to look up the specifications of your specific model to see if they are compatible.

Yeah that service should really have a disclaimer that not all phones are listed.

You sure that's not KII and not K11? There might be another submodel variation somewhere too. You should be able to find all model numbers in the About phone menu area in the settings.

@WW29 that model is a bit tricky to locate.  Was it sold in Canada?  Or did you import it from China/Europe/India?

@WW29Quickest & Easiest way? Find a Telus / Koodo / Public Mobile SIM card that is already activated and just put it in the phone and test. If it works? Great.. if not you know your answer. Most cell phone stores already have a SIM card activated sitting there already.. just walk in and ask instead of going back and forth on the internet and wondering.

Rogers carried Huawei GR5 a few years ago.  The box is showing Huawei KII-L05. 

Did you purchased this Huawei phone from Rogers/Fido/Chatr?

If yes, it will work with PM.
