Even if it is compatible unless you are getting for less than $50 a 2015 phone isn't worth it. If your price range is $100 to $200 look at the umidigi A3 series, A5 pro and F1, F2 phones on Amazon.ca. Even at regular price you will get way more bang for your buck.

Re: Gsm

Most current phones sold in Canada will work. GSM only phone will not 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).
  • HSPA: 850 MHz, 1900 MHz (UMTS).

 

Do you have a specific phone in mind?

 

You can check for phone compatibility here:

@AdamLove No, you cannot. Public Mobile only supports 3G and LTE.

Telus operates on 850/1900 HSPA frequencies. This is not GSM retro compatible and so you have to ensure the phone from Asia is HSPA compatible. LTE frequency for Telus should be 700 band.

@AdamLove  S30 will work, but is it Galaxy S30? I guess it is still not released, no?

That looks like a new design phone. Please find out the model and see its specification.
