For anyone asking if their phone is compatible with a certain carrier or country

I see posts pop up every week with someone asking if device X works with carrier or country Y. Lots of RFD'ers are willing to help which is nice.

However, I recommend people check https://willmyphonework.net and use it as a guide/reference. You might want to double-check with the device homepage and/or carrier site but that tool is a good reference.

I've stuck the thread -- there are enough inquiries here about phone / network compatibilities.

My mom is planning on bringing back a phone from Asia to use on Rogers. She still has the old flip phone. I been trying to tell her not all phones will work. This is good. Thanks.

I'm guessing that they probably don't have your model listed. Use the contact form on the site. I've used it in the past to request models.

P.S. Sucks that your screen shattered.

It is actually a very useful site. I'm going to go to Tbilisi, Georgia and was not sure if my smartphone iPhone 6S plus, purchased in Canada, will work properly with the Georgian carriers. It turned out all right, 4G will also be available. Frankly, I lost some time seeking the iPhone in list of brands, but then I realized that I need to look for Apple :).

For those just wanting to use their phone in another country (or even in Canada) on a different service, the KnowRoaming SIM or sticker is a great option. More info on their site knowroaming.com. One option is their Global SIM and the other is their global sticker that adds and ultra thin sim to your existing sim. Costs are $9.95 and $29.95 resp., but with promo offers widely available you can get 30% off. (If you can use my code (PM me) when purchasing we will both also get a $5.00 credit!) You then also get various other promotional credits. The sticker version comes with $10.00 credit voucher and with both, by the time you get all the promotional credits, the sim really costs nothing. Works in 200 countries. You do need an unlocked GSM smartphone. Basically becomes a prepaid phone with rates competitive with local rates offered by major carriers. In Canada, my K-R phone is on Rogers or Bell most of the time and in USA AT&T & T-Mobile, but depends just where you are.

Thanked.
FYI, when clicking the link it goes back to the main forum page for me, please fix, of course can just type it in a browser and that works :).
