My phone is samsung galaxy s6 edge and the IMEI number I entered to check whether I can use this phone with Public Mobile services, it says number not found. How can I find out whether my phone will work?
Checking a phone's IMEI number with Public Mobile's web compatibility checker is not a requirement for a phone's use. In fact, any IMEI database is going to have some errors and missing data. it's a general guide only. Where did you purchase your S6 Edge from (was it from another carrier)? Knowing the exact model would be helpful because there are often multiple variants of a phone made for different regions, sometimes only some of which will be compatible.
You can check for compatibility with PM's network on this site:
According to that site, most Samsung S6 models produced for global or North America will work with PM. You'd need your exact variant to be sure though.
As mentioned, IMEI checkers are only useful for checking if the phone has been blacklisted (e.g. stolen) or not.
It's well documented that the IMEI checker is broken. In fact, I put in a labs suggestion to get rid of it and refer customers to willmyphonework.net.
Here is the Golden rule:
If Handset came from Telus/Koodo, you're all set, no need to unlock
PM uses Telus's HSPA+4G Network
3G: 850/1900 MHz: Bare Minimum requirement for Talk, Txt & Data
4G LTE: 1700/2100 MHz: Only Data, VOLTE is not yet available, maybe later
Telus has NO/ ZERO, ZIP,
Like mentioned above, if the phone is unlocked, or came from Telus or Koodo it should work.
However, if it came from another carrier, it will have to be unlocked. Locked phones set to another carrier will not work on PM
