Device and destination details

Is your wireless device not listed in the International roaming search tool?

There are two reasons why this could be happening.

You are using a non-SaskTel wireless device.

Non-SaskTel devices are not included in the International roaming search tool.  To find out if your Non-SaskTel device is capable of international roaming, follow these steps:

  1. Look up what networks and bands (also known as frequencies) your device is capable of roaming on.  This can be found by referring to your device's manual or by searching for your device on websites such as  For example, the Samsung Galaxy S Vibrant is capable of roaming on GSM networks on the 850, 900, 1800 and 1900 Mhz bands, and on networks on the 1700, 1900 and 2100 Mhz bands.
  2. Use the SaskTel International roaming search tool above and select All Manufacturers and All Models, select your travel destination, then click Submit. This will give you a complete list of roaming networks available to SaskTel customers in the destination you have selected.
  3. Compare the available bands in the destination you're travelling to with the bands your device is capable of roaming on.  If there is a match, then your device can roam on that network.  For example, if the search tool indicates there is a network at your destination that operates on the GSM 1900Mhz band, and your device is capable of roaming on a GSM 1900Mhz band, then you will likely be able to use your device on that network. 


  • Roaming Carrier Network – These are our roaming partner networks that you can access in a specific country. Coverage within a country can vary between carriers.
  • Frequency Band – Different phones and devices work on different frequency bands. If you entered your device model, this tool will only show you the frequencies and roaming carrier networks that your device will work on.
  • International Access Code – These are also referred to as an International Direct Dialing (IDD) prefix. You must dial this code when making an international call within a specific country.
  • International Country Code – You must dial this code when making a call to the country listed.

IMPORTANT: Network coverage, services, and features are dependent on the wireless carrier you are roaming with and are subject to change without notice. Please ensure that your Settings and Roaming Service Mode are programmed correctly to enable roaming service.
