Frequencies

You go to setting, about this phone, you'll see the exact model.
 
Look at 
https://www.frequencycheck.com

For your device, then click "check country/carrier compatibility" and look for Videotron.
 
You need to have theses frequencies on your phone :

Calls: Your device must support HSPA 850 MHz or 1900 MHz frequencies

Mobile data: Your device must have dual-frequency support for 1700/2100 MHz (also called AWS or band 4)

Mike advised me to check compatibility. But there is no info for Android in the page
https://fizz.ca/en/faq/compatible-devices

Here what you need to look from the page that mike linked

Which frequencies must my phone support? 

For an LTE-compatible phone configured with LTE network preferences:

  • Calls: Your device must support HSPA 850 MHz or 1900 MHz frequencies
  • Mobile data: Your device must have dual-frequency support for 1700/2100 MHz (also called AWS or band IV)

 

Your phone can also support other frequencies that allow it to take advantage of the LTE network.

For a phone that only allows 3G or HSPA preferred:

  • Calls and / or mobile data: The phone must support the 1700/2100 MHz frequency (also called AWS)

 

Go on a website like FrequencyCheck.com, Kimovil.com or WillMyPhoneWork.net.

Enter your device brand and model (be sure to select the exact model number).

Then verify if the frequencies of your smartphone are compatible with those that are written on Fizz.

Everyone seems to think your Russian phone won't work with Fizz.

 

To confirm, go to those sites listed with your phone model to check the specs.

If your phone supports only the 3G frequencies, then you would need to disable LTE on your phone settings.

You can also try your SIM card on another phone to make sure data is working.
