It should be fine but which variant is it and where did you order it from?  Different versions will have different network type of frequency specifications.

Yes, it is.   

 

But, there are different version of this phone.  If you are buying it off a store in Canada or even Amazon.ca, it would be no problem.  If you got it from another country other than US, then just confirm the exact spec, confirm the band/frequency it supports

Hello @LT3 

 

This phone should be just fine.

 

.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).

Please note that this information is indicative only. Your phone's compatibility with our 4G or 4G LTE networks is based on the radio frequencies of your phone. Public Mobile does not guarantee that your phone will work on our mobile network.

 

 

Always good to check whether a phone will work with any provider, especially Public Mobile. Use more than one source to be sure.

S4 uses Micro SIM while A32 uses nano SIM

 

is your S4 SIM one of those Tri-cut SIM card?  If so, just pop out the "frame" to make it a nano.. if not, you will have to get a new SIM..  Amazon has it for $5 for Prime members with 2 day shipping. .

Unlesss you have very old Public Mobile SIM card, a section of plastic can be removed to change it to nano size.

They have different SIM slot sizes, Your current phone should have an adapter that can be gently snapped out to fit in the A32.

IF it is an older SIM, maybe it needs to be cut-cell shops can cut them down to fit.

EDIT, if you do have an older style SIM and are not able to have it cut, then obtaining a new SIM and having the Moderators swap your SIM number for you is another option.

Just keep the larger size frames in case you need to use your S4 as a back up. Enjoy your A32. My 2017 model is still ticking along nicely. Curiously does your fm radio work on it?
