I recently bought the apollo lite from Vernee, and their frequencies are as such :

2G: GSM 850/900/1800MHz
3G: WCDMA 900/2100MHz
4G: FDD-LTE 800/1800/2100/2600MHz

I was wondering if this is compatible with telus in the Greater Vancouver area of BC?

Thanks in advance.

Hey @Fathom,

 

Based on the frequency ranges you posted, it doesn't sound like the device will work on the TELUS network. 

 

Here's a complete list of supported frequencies. You can also check the IMEI to confirm compatibility.

So judging by what you said, I assume both frequencies have to match the 1700 and the 2600? But in this case only the 2600 match so it would not work?

The phone you purchased does not match the frequency range telus uses..

 

TELUS deploys HSPA: 850/1900 MHz; LTE: 700/1700/2100 MHz

To start with, when you buy a phone from one of the Asian online stores, you'll find that most will not work in North America as North America has different 3G and LTE frequencies in use than the rest of the world. Many cases the phones will work in Asia and Europe. If you bought a phone with a Mediatek CPU, it will not typically be compatible in North America.

 

For the Vernee

GSM: Not Supported

3G: Not supported (850/1900MHz required)

LTE: Not Supported. Requires Band 4 which is both 1700MHz (Uplink) and 2100MHz (Downlink) frequencies
