Unlocked Nokia Lumia 1020 - Will it work?

Hey guys,

I want to buy a Nokia Lumia 1020, and my preferred carrier, Telus, is no longer selling it. I found an unlocked version of the phone on eBay, but I'm not sure if it will work on the Telus network. Can anyone weigh in?

Thanks,

Lucas

If the phone is unlocked it should work on Telus just fine.

The OP may not post a link to ebay, but I believe he's concerned about the following:

New Nokia Lumia 1020 - FACTORY UNLOCKED

This is a GSM Phone it will NOT work with CDMA based carriers such as Verizon, Sprint, Alltel, Cellular One, Metro PCS, and Cricket.

Please confirm your carrier runs on a GSM network before purchase.

The 1020 has to be the RM-877 version to work correctly on Telus.
