So a family member got a Lumia 520 recently, specifically this one: Amazon.com: Nokia Lumia 520 8GB Black - International Version, Factory Unlocked WP8: Cell Phones & Accessories. They want to use it with Virgin Mobile which runs on the Bell Canada Network, but they called me up telling me the Virgin Guy at his local store told him the IMEI was incompatible. Does anyone know if this particular model is not compatible with Canadian networks? Or if the virgin guy just has no idea what he's talking about?

Thanks

Chances are that he just doesn't know what he's talking about. The IMEI does not have anything to do with compatibility (unlocking issues aside), the bands the device supports and the APN settings do.
