Prepaid & 911

I am aware that deactivated cell phones can still connect to 911 as long as they are close enough to a tower and the phone is charged.

Will a Koodo prepaid phone still connect to 911 even if there are no funds on the account?  I was not able to easily find an answer regarding Koodo's prepaid phones, but was able to find out that PC Mobility prepaid phones would connect without funds.

Thank you!

It doesn’t matter who the original provider was, even if the account has expired. It should work for emergency services if you are in range of any cell tower.

My Koodo prepaid phone can’t access the local tower at home due to terrain issues.

Recent amber alerts were received load and clear only because there is a newer Rogers tower in the neighbourhood.
