Phone are only on emergency only for two reasons: the phone needs to be charges, or it could also be on airplane mode.

Hey wayne, if you have an HSPA phone (sim card phone) remove the back cover of the battery, then remove the battery , look for a sim card in the back side of the phone slide it out, make sure the golden part faces down to your phone and slide it back in , put the battery and the cover back in , turn it on, and it should work.
also you can try looking into the phone settings , networks and connections (also see connectivity) and make sure the Mobile network its on.
i hope that works for you wayne , if not try calling koodo at *611 from your mobile or 1866-995-6636 from a land line.
have a good day
