Chinese knock-off "AKAI Android Note" and Canadian Carriers

Hi, don't really know where to go with this.

A company I work for bought a huge shipment of miscellaneous gadgets from China for cheap and one of the items was for a AKAI Android Note with a model number of HD98+.
Looks like a Note, can't tell what "version" really. No pen. Seems to run well. Wanted to try it out - I am on a WIND plan with an old S3 - pull out my sim card and try and it wont connect to any towers just the "WIND Away" ones. I grab a friend who has an S5 I believe who is on ROGERS and it works just fine and I thought that was weird since Rogers and wind both use the WCDMA 2100 freq.

Anyways maybe it's locked, I don't know. Says its running Android 4.2.2 and when I plug it into the computer it's trying to load the MT65xx drivers. I would like to try to unlock it or root it or downgrade to 4.1.1 but I don't know where to even get the firmware. Searched for AKAI HD98+ and all I get are chinese sites butwont translate for me. Might be a real Android, it's fooling me. Want to see if I can get it to run on WIND. Don't really know where to start, if I even can. Tried the unlock code from the dialer and it did nothing.

SPECS:
AKAI HD98+
WCDMA 850/2100 GSM 850/900/1800/1900
Android 4.2.2
Baseband MOLY.WR8.W1315.MD.WG.MP.V21
Kernel version 3.4.39
Build 2706_v92_jbla_hd_20140106_akai
