Hi I need some help. I'm wanting to buy my son a smart watch and connect it to the PM network. The watch says it works on 3G networks on these GSM bands:
GSM 850/900/ 1800/1900Mhz+ WCDMA 2100Mhz
Does PM support GSM? If so, does it work on any of the listed band frequencies? I want to double check before ordering the watch. Thanks! 🙂
GSM usually means 2G service; Public Mobile is only 3G and LTE. The bands in use are the same as Telus as listed here: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Telus_Mobility.
If it's in the list, this website has been accurate: https://willmyphonework.net.
Based on the list you have provided I expect this phone will not work on Public Mobile.
@Rachel7884 Rogers (& its sub brands) is only carrier in Canada where GSM is officially supported (technically Freedom could roam in Away zones but then your plan will get cancelled for abuse)
Telus / Bell require 3G at least
As an aside, I would be very skeptical any smart watch would just support the older bands listed... even the chinese brands are usually more modern.
Post the type of watch I am sure someone can give you better details
