Hey All,

I have a couple questions concerning international usage for my Nexus 5. I'm currently using it for Sprint in the US. I believe that it is the phone from Sprint. I'm not sure because I bought it second hand. The previous owner didn't tell me where it's from.

But currently, I'm using it on Sprint LTE data services.

I'm going to Canada for 2 months in July and I'd like to use my Nexus 5 on either Rogers(preferred) or Bell.

Id like to use Rogers or Bell's LTE service, but from what I hear is that the US version of the phone only allows US carrier LTE service and only 3G international service.

I'm not sure? Can anyone give me more information about this?


Thanks in advanced.

If canada has the same lte bands as usa and the providers in canada don't block phones which are not bought from them, then you will be fine

There are only 2 models. North America (where Canada is) and everywhere else.

As mentioned as long as Canadian carriers don't use a CDMA system that only allows those devices that are in their database, then it should be fine
