Compatible phone?

Hi. I am using a moto-G6 on my Public Mobile account, and I am very pleased with the service Public Mobile gives me. My friend would like to purchase a Moto G8 Power Lite phone, and wants to know if it will work with a Public Mobile SIM card. Website says: "Will NOT work with CDMA Carriers Such as Verizon, Sprint, Boost." Should I advise her not to purchase that phone if she plans to stay with Public Mobile?

Does the web site go on to say it works with the likes of T-Mobile and/or AT&T? Oh look...those are the US roaming partners of Public Mobile.

@tuck53  according to this site https://www.frequencycheck.com/carrier-compatibility/83zYfGa/motorola-moto-g8-play-dual-sim-lte-a-la... it has both the required 3g and 4g LTE bands to work with PM. Stay safe.

My thread is on-going in the lounge. I didn't look if this one had dual sim and nfc and my wariness of Android One if it has it.

I ordered another Samsung A31 from ebay. Dang I hate mail-order. Probably another friggin month before I get it. Covid donchaknow. Meanwhile they have my money. Anyway...no need to sidetrack this thread.

Re: Compatible phone?

Thanks! Got it for her. Can she use the same SIM card as she has in her MOTO G6, or does she need a new one?
