Hi, I am a koodo prepaid user, I'm currently travel to Vietnam. While my phone is ON I cannot receive text message sent to my number, how will I be able to access my text message?

You can't use prepaid internationally, only in Canada and the US

Unfortunately no. If your phone is unlocked, get a local SIM that allows international texting and send your contacts your temporary number or have them use email. Otherwise, your undelivered texts will expire after a few days.
