Bluboo S8 phone

I purchased a Chinese phone called a Bluboo S8. It is a nice looking phone but my SIM card is too large for the holder. Does this phone work on the AT&T network and if so, can I get a SIM card for it?

The phone won’t work in USA. If the phone brought in Mainland China.

Bluboo phones sold in North America had different Spec.

Return the phone.  US 3G requires bands 850 and 1900, and that phone brand has neither.  It also has no LTE bands for ATT.  It will never work.

These are the online specs.  https://www.pdevice.com/product/bluboo-s8-price-specs

2G - doesn’t matter ATT has no 2G network

3G - North America  uses 850 and 1900, It claims to have 850 in some websites, which means it might get 3G, or you might have towers with no 850 Signal.  

LTE - ATT uses 2,4,5,12/17 and 30.  Of which the phone has NONE of these bands.

850 only in my area would net you ZERO I mean ZERO service as most towers are 1900

Based on the specs you posted, it’s not possible.  No 3G bands, no LTE bands.  

If you poke around, other websites say it has HSDPA 850.  That is one of the 2 required for 3G connection.  If you leave your 850 towers, into a 1900 tower area, you get nothing
