    Does anyone know if the htc one x lte works with Wind once unlocked? this phone is coming from Telus, and I’m buying it unlocked. Please answer as you may save me 300 dollars!

    • techfried

      According to the specs HTC ONE X or XT as it’s called in China, is not LTE and it doesn’t support 1700 frequency to work with Mobilicity or Wind. But HTC ONE X AT&T is LTE and works on 1700 frequency.

      The Telus one also supports 1700 frequency and is LTE. You can check it on their website
      good luck

      • disqus_54HqWEDFAT

        Hi there,I very much appreciate your response and the time you are taking to look into it, but I believe the phone I’m interested in is INDEED a LTE phone! If you see the ‘specs’ below that I took straight from the Telus website, hopefully this will enlighten you a bit more?? I really am confused and desperately need the thanks again in advance.Sincerely,Trina Here are the specs:

        • techfried

          Yes the specs says that the phone supports 1700 frequency on LTE or 4G. So it should work fine on Mobilicity or Wind. But it will only work on 4G not 3G because 1700 frequency is not supported on 3G or 2G. But that shouldn’t be a problem if you have 4G signal everywhere. On the other hand it might not on 3G roaming.

          What I would suggest you is that you buy the phone only if it’s already unlocked. Then you can take your Mobilicity/Wind Sim card and test it right there when you are buying it. Good luck

  • Kern Lee

    will Xperia Z or ZL work with wind? thanks

    • techfried

      Xperia ZL should work with wind on 3G & 4G. But Xperia Z will only work on 3G with Wind & Mobilicity.


    What about Nokia Lumia 610? GSM area shows 3G HSDPA 850 / 900 / 1900 / 2100 freq’s


    Huawei W1 doesn’t support aws. Huawei faked the specification of the feature list. Now they remove aws from the official webpage after they sold the phones 3 months.

    • techfried

      Thanks for your bringing this to our attention. Yes you’re right, Huawei hasn’t specified AWS 1700 as the supporting frequency band on W1, hence it’s taken off the list.

  • roxygya

    Can anyone please help,just recently bought a Huawei U8860 online. When I insert my Mobilicity sim card it does not work. When you search for networks will only find Roger and will only show 2g. The only thing that works is texting. If someone knows your feedback will be appreciated.

    • techfried

      Can you tell me where did you buy your phone?

      • roxygya

        I bought it from a online store I guess based in china. According to the specs it is compatible with the Mobilicity network.

        • techfried

          If it’s not allowing you to connect to mobilicity on 3G then it might be aws compatible. Here’s what you can do.
          In the phone dialer, type in *#*#364#*#*

          under the FIELD TEST screen, you should see a “band”

          • roxygya

            When I put in that number with and without the sim card does not bring me to the FIELD TEST screen, Just brings me back to the dialer screen,thinking that I inputed too many numbers. Unless I am doing something wrong. I inputed the number 3 times and back too dialer screen.

          • PreachJohn

            I think techfried meant *#*#3646#*#*. This might get you somewhere.

          • roxygya

            I don’t know if I am doing it right but nothing happens.

        • techfried

          sorry my bad, i think it’s *#*#4636#*#*

    Hi Techfried !!…

    I have a blackberry 9790 from WIND. For some reason, the motherboard is dead.. I was wondering if I can buy an used Rogers BB 9790 (same model) and use its motherboard in my phone?. Will it work in WIND again? or Will I need to use it in Rogers/Bell networks only (full 3G capacity)?



  • Rema Sah

    to “Nokia Lumia 3g/4g not working”

    Watch solution at following youtube video:

  • Carlos Guevara

    The Motorola Razr V XT885 from bell is the same model number as the Wind Razr V but the Bell version is not usable with Wind. Which is weird cause any phone model with Wind will have a different number Ex GS3 from Bell is I747M while GS3 from Wind is T999

  • poju

    Hi, there

    I wonder I can use the Asus fonepad with mobilicity?

    They said it use these :

    850/900/1800/1900 MHz

    This EDGE/GSM type only support voice call, SMS /MMS transmission and can only apply to 2G transmission speed.

    WCDMA: 850/900/1900/2100 MHz

    HSPA+ UL:5.76 Mbps/DL:21 Mbps

    anyone know about this? Cani I use it at vancouver?

  • Myron Lasch

    I also have a asus padfone 2 It is unlocked from Taiwan I also can not connect to mobilicity. The Nexus is the same,but works whats so different. I was told it was basically the same system ? Is there no settings you can input. Did notice that in the “access point names menu” that the settings are all blank; but had the mobilicity guy insert them and he said is still did not work. ps. Can a network provider block out one’s cell phone. Please help anybody.

    • techfried

      These devices are manufactured with certain frequencies. The frequency that Mobilicity and Wind works on are different than Telus, Bell, Rogers and others. The frequency that you’ve to look for in the technical specifications of the phone is AWS 1700. Please make sure the phone does say that it works on AWS 1700 frequency as well. If it doesn’t then i’m afraid it will not work on Mobilicity or Wind. The network settings inputs will not make any difference. hope that helps
