Officially, no... But the only way to find out for sure is to try it with the service or device that you want to use.

Issues with an answering machine should be rare but can happen, one being that the machine could have issues detecting when someone has hung up; Koodo's home phone does come with voicemail which is often a better choice and will work if you lose power (based on server instead) or if you're on the phone and do not want to answer call waiting (also included) . Here is an explanation on why faxes or other data related devices do not work well with the Koodo home phone or other services that compress voice data on a phone call.
