When you check airtime usage and it shows a place where call is coming from is the person with the cell phone calling from there or is it listing the last cell tower it is connecting to nearest me.

Well not so sure about that. My friend lives in town next to me and works oil patch. Her number is an edmonton number but if she is working out of Hardisty ...it shows as calling from Alliance and that is neatest cell tower if she calls from red Deer it shows as calling from Red Deer. Today I got call from ex who claims to live in Medicine Hat but showed the call came from Forestburg ten minutes outside my home. I am concerned he is stalking me as it was ugly relationship. Usually it shows up Hanna as he was last living in Hanna but today claiming to have moved to Medicine Hat 5 hours from me it showed up as Forestburg 10 minutes from me.

No looking to ensure I am understanding what my usage chart says for sure as ex had been making threatening calls so before I update the police I just needed confirmation. They like facts and so do I ...I will call koodo and wait online just thought someone here could assure me of what I believe is correct.

My husband has a Toronto number.
If he went to Niagara falls and called me, self serve will show you the call is coming from NF.
If he went to parry sound and called me, it will show you the call is coming from PS.
So, airtime usage tells you that  the person with the cell phone calling from there.

Thank you. That is what I wanted to know if it was where the person was calling from or if it showed last cell tower it pinged from to get to me if it did then my ex husband was in town where I live claiming to be 6 hours away in a different city and that I needed to be sure of before filing the police report for restraining order. I needed to be sure I understood what I was reading.

Sorry 5 hours away from me not 6. I like to be factual.
