    You need an unlocked phone. By law all service providers must unlock their phone.

    Yes, they use the same network. Fizz is own by Quebecor and Videotron too.
    You can get more info here.
  • Yes but you can unlock anytimes with any provider for free !

    Yes i does work
  • Yes it does. No need unlock it.
    BTW. It's free to unlock a phone from Videotron, just call Videotron and ask.
  • It'll work just fine. Fizz and videotron uses the same frequency bands so no issues at all. You may want to contact videotron to get your phone unlocked anyways. There's no charge for that. It's better to have an unlocked phone in the event you might want to switch to another provider in the future.

    According to Fizz website: https://fizz.ca/en/faq/how-do-i-unlock-my-phone (all copy-paste):
    If you bought your phone from another mobile provider and want to use it on the Fizz network, you need to make sure your phone is unlocked.
    Because Fizz is not the company that locked your phone, we cannot unlock it. Only the provider who sold you your phone (and who locked it) can unlock it for you. Ask this provider’s customer service team for an unlock code and instructions for unlocking your phone.
    By law, companies are not allowed to charge a fee to unlock phones. However, be aware that some websites specialize in unlocking phones and will offer this service for a fee.
