Yes and no

The phone and text messaging functions should work fine but Koodo Prepaid doesn't support BlackBerry Internet Services (BIS) so Picture Messaging, Web browsing, Email, and basically anything that requires data, won't function even over wifi.

There are workarounds like installing the Opera Mini Browser through the blackberry desktop software and using Web mail through the browser. But tbh opera mini isn't that wonderful.

Hope that helps somewhat.
