ASUS Zenfone 2 ZE551ML (China, India)

Im looking to get the ASUS Zenfone 2 ZE551ML (China, India) from ebay and I wanted to know if it would be compatible with public mobile. when I checked willmyphonework.net  it says it will work with 3g 850Mhz/1900mhz and 4g comes up with Band 40-2300Mhz.

 

Will this phone work with 3G and 4G?

It's mostly old phones that have compatability problems, new phones are usually fine. If you can get the IMEI number before you order it you can check it here: https://www.publicmobile.ca/en/bc/get-started

We have found https://willmyphonework.net to be quite accurate. So this phone will be fine on PM's 3G network for all services but will have no LTE. See: https://productioncommunity.publicmobile.ca/t5/Knowledge-Base/Getting-Started/ta-p/162 for PM bands.

So 3G? Yes, 4G? Maybe. Should work, but you will not have stronger singal if the phone has any 700MHz bands

This list in not complete.  I'm aware that you're probably just copying and pasting the information that you're given, but if the frequencies for this phone that you've listed are correct, LTE will not only be available on Band 4, but also on 2, 5, and 7.

Yes, you are right.

But for all the possible bands across canada, there are more.

This information is incorrect.  The China, India model of the zenfone 2 will only work on 3G, zero LTE.

I would understand this if you already had the phone and didn't want to purchase a new one, but since you're looking to purcahse a device, why not just get the North American variant of this phone?  The North American variant of the Zenfone 2 was sold both at retail and online at authorized sellers.

 

 

I would also consider the Zenfone 3 Laser, or Zenfone 4 series models (newer software, more recent, etc.).

 

You should know that there are reports of people with Asus phones running Android 8.1 having trouble getting data to work because of APN setting restrictions in the software.
