Nokia 800 Tough In Canada

Hey folks,

 

Looking to use PublicMobile, and was wanting to use a Nokia 800 Tough for my phone. I was wondering if anyone has done this before, as it says that the Nokia 800 Tough does not work on CDMA networks. I am not the most savvy with cellular technology, and wanted to make sure this would work before ordering the phone. I was looking to order this one from this link: https://www.amazon.ca/Nokia-2100mAh-Rugged-Factory-Unlocked/dp/B07X63JCWT (not sure if it matters where I get it from, again just wanting clarification to make sure this would work). Any help and clarification on if I would be able to do this with public mobile would be great!

 

Thanks so much in advance!

Assuming it's this version:

It is not ideal in terms of band support. It's missing 3G WCDMA B2 (1900) and LTE B2, 4, 12.

 

Network bands (LTE):

NO, it won't work.  It is  for European and Asian market which use different frequencies.

@zacforan  says  that the Nokia 800 Tough does not work on CDMA networks...so it is GSM. 

 

And when Googling Telus they say:

No GSM device will work on the Telus network. Only Rogers. GSM also has horrible speed and reception as it's decades old.

 

So as @softech says...it WON'T work!!

No assuming....look at what @zacforan said "the Nokia 800 Tough does not work on CDMA networks"

 

And look at what the ad says.....

honest, we have to be extra careful in concluding if a phone will work or not on PM.  Someone might go out and order a new phone for couple hundred bucks based on our comment..    🙂
