Compatability of Nokia 6.1

Is the Nokia 6.1 compatable with Public Mobile? It doesn't seem to be on the drop-down menu when you're checking.

And for the future, how does one identify whether a phone is compatible or not?

 

Thanks!

Re: Compatability of Nokia 6.1

Check your phone specs on-line to confirm if they fall within PM frequency ranges.

 

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).
  • HSPA: 850 MHz, 1900 MHz (UMTS)

Looks like your Nokia 6.1 should work here as long as it's unlocked.

Good luck.

According to this site, the Nokia 6.1 should be fine with Public Mobile.  Unfortunately, PM's compatibility check uses willmyphonework.net, which is missing many phone models.

 

PM's compatibility requirements are listed here:

Look specifically for UMTS/3g/HSPA/WCDMA bands 2 and 5 (1900 and 850MHz).

 

Note that 850 and 1900MHz on 2g will not help.

 

I can tell you for sure that the North American variant of the Nokia  6.1 is compatible.

@naluukti  Other customers have reported not being able to connect to the PM network after Nokia pushed their latest update to that phone. Nokia is aware of the issue and will provide a fix in their next update.

Hi. Just bought a Nokia 6.1 Plus (TA-1103 64GB Dual SIM) International version. I checked the links with no results. If I provide the IMEI # could you let me know for sure? I just wasted ten bucks on my Freedom SIM, then found out it is not compatible with their network.

Well, I was silly enough to buy it on e-bay, new, but who knows where it actually came from? I just checked a tech website that listed it as being compatible (with Freedom). I should have known better - if we can't make VCR tapes and DVD's to work everywhere, why on earth would a cell phone? 😄
