Huawei P smart

Hi, not sure if anyone can give me advice, I have a Huawei P smart phone which is now out of contract. I have ordered a new Sim from Virgin at a cheaper rate. It states on the contract the phone must be compatible for 5g and I’m unsure if it is. Would it still work if it wasn’t?

Thanks

Re: Huawei P smart

Thanks for your post @Micka.

Sadly the handset would need to be 5G compatible. 

There are three elements required to work on a 5G service;

1) The SIM and tariff are 5G

2) The mast you're connecting produces a 5G service

3) The handset is compatible with 5G services

Kindest regards,

David_Bn

Re: Huawei P smart

The phone only needs to be compatible with 5G to work on the 5G service.

If not it will happily work on 4G 3G and 2G even with a 5G SIM. Let's face it no everywhere has 5G
