Yes it does. Make sure it's unlocked. Don't forget to use a referral code for a$10 signup bonus.

Re: Phones that work with network

@pharaohpeter  Take note that the compatibility phone check does not list "all" phones. That link is manually updated by Public Mobile. 

 

Many newer phones (like ops) is not listed until PM updates the list.

 

As long as the phone matches public mobiles frequency it will work.

 

Public Mobile uses the following frequency bands:

  • 4G LTE and LTE Advanced: 700 MHz, 850 MHz, 1900 MHz and 2100 MHz downlink and 1700 MHz uplink (AWS).

Re: Phones that work with network

@Jb456For 4G to be able to function on Public Mobile, does the phone have to have ALL those 4G frequencies? Or will it work if you have only one of the frequencies?

Yes but make sure the model is a Canadian one (model SM-A715W). Samsung also produces international versions which may not be fully compatible but will still do the job.

 

Cheers.

Re: Phones that work with network

yes absolutely works if not blacklisted or locked in another country. For example i tried my sim card in sprint carrier locked phone(American version) it was not working.

It depends upon your device if its factory unlocked.
