2100mHz and 1700mHz are the frequencies the phone will use. Wind uses AWS (1700/2100). It's not always compatible with the other big 3 carriers LTE depending on the device. Telus I believe uses 850/1900 HSPA (3G) and 2100mHz for LTE, if memory serves. None of the Telus towers I've seen info for online use 1700.

 

Also doesn't Easyhome just sell refurbished cell phones? Their website only shows them, no brand new unlocked ones. They are also royally over pricing the phone. $15 * 104 = $1560. The 16GB unlocked Z10 sold by Blackberry through Amazon Canada is only $260...

Yes, BB Z10 is supported on the TELUS network. If the phone is not from TELUS then you need to unlock it if it isn't unlocked already.

it is unlocked I pay 15 a week for it for 104 weeks from easyhome lol

so U saying it can go prepaid or no ?  and how do U know for sure?

yes they should say unlocked or locked but they dont and I had 2 phones from them one Iphone 4S and 5 both were unlocked but I hated them after it froze on Itunes and showed plug in cord and what ever else.

Also I hope the BBZ10 can go pay go cause I may put it on with Telus Or may not I may go with Virgin or Fido or RW (Rogers Wireless)

yes they always like to over price just to keep the customers. I been with them for 5 yrs or less now . I pay 20 some what on my HP laptop for 90 weeks. I realy should give them up when my lease is done but I just cant due to offers and new stuff from 15.00 a week to 20-25 dollars.

Hi Rodney, In addition, as long as your phone is unlocked you will be able to use it with the Telus prepaid platform. 

OK thanks I was told some can some cant be not sure why they restrict phones good way of losing customers who have older phones on GSM like BB 8800 8830 no 9630 no 9530 but yes to : 9100 9810 9000 9790 9780 9300 and 9320 for pay go this is dumb. That why asked thanks

As long as the device supports our network frequencies, as was mentioned before by @Nighthawk , you should be fine.

BestBuy or Futureshop also sell the Telus version of the Blackberry Z10 for $199.99 as a pre paid phone.

Rodney - Are you on a contract with Easyhome?
