Does anyone have the Lumia 800 that can test this for me?
I want to get one (probably get my gf's dad to bring it from Taiwan when he comes over), but I'm alittle afraid that once I get it, it won't work on Bell...
I think imei can be used to check through their site, here:
Will my mobile phone or smartphone work on the Bell network?
look for the link "See if your device is compatible"
Thanks a bunch (may be I should just suck it up and pay the termination charge and go rogers instead...=..=)

Bad news I'm afraid - I checked and got this message:
It seems this device xxxxxxxxxxx Nokia Corporation is not compatible with the Bell network.
To be absolutely certain, please visit a Bell store. Or check out the great lineup of mobile phones available on the Bell network now.

Bell currently have... 0 windows phone :(
the network that has the most restriction and decides to go narrow on cell select, not good
I guess I'll wait and see if Bell gets anything next year, if not I'm going Rogers instead...

Yeah, Im not sure why its saying its not compatible. Its a GSM phone that comes unlocked & has all the right bands (minus the LTE). There's no reason why it shouldn't work.
Maybe since the phone is so new their system doesn't even know what it is?

@@, i hope Bell just forgot to put the imei for the 800 into their database (crossing my fingers)
anyone got the phone willing to go to Bell and harass them for a sim card just to test out their network for the public?(me :P)
or may be i should just get the phone and jump ship if they don't support it...

Im using an unlocked lumia 800 on the Bell network. Just took my old sim and cut it and popped it in. Working fine. Wished i got the 900 though to take advantage of the LTE.
Msg me if you have any more questions.
