Will your phone work?

Enter your IMEI number in the tool below to find out if your phone is compatible with our network. Remember, if your phone is locked to a specific carrier, you'll have to get it unlocked before you can use it.

Here's how to find your IMEI number:

Dial *#06# on your phone. If your phone is working, your IMEI will pop up.
