Looking at Samsung A30 - will it work with PM?

Hi all,

 

I'm looking at upgrading my phone to this one: https://www.amazon.ca/Samsung-A30-SM-A305G-Unlocked-International/dp/B07NKBBVLV/ref=sr_1_3?keywords=...

 

Samsung A30 Dual Sim, Latin Version

 

Will it work on the Public Mobile network for voice, text and data?

Are you sure about the LTE bands?  Gsmarena suggests differently.

Bestbuy.ca is in agreement with gsmarena.  LTE coverage is going to be weak although 3G will be fine.

I wonder if the version from Amazon is identical to the one you found on the Samsung website.  The specs say the phone also has band 66 LTE.  The only countries that use this band is Canada and US.

@will13am  My understanding is that there is only one Latin Spec International version of this phone. To make sure the OP can start a chat session from the Samsung site that I linked to be 100% sure.

@MeganElford  did you end up getting this. I am starting to think about getting something new and this phone might be a good choice for me. Assuming it works.

If you are close to the city, you might want to check out the Samsung Experience Stores..

Haven't got it yet ... I'm still up in the air about whether or not it will work ...
