Yes. The Mobile Alarm operates on the mobile phone network just like a mobile phone does. A sim card must be installed, activated and a mobile phone number must be assigned to the pendant.
As part of the setup we will install a Sim card for you that picks the best available mobile signal out of the closest Bell, Telus, Rogers, MTS, Tbaytel or Sasktel mobile tower, depending on where you are at any given time in Canada. It includes the first years worth of emergency voice calls and texts and there is no need to keep an eye on remaining credit. We will supply you with the mobile phone number assigned to your pendant and that number will be clearly marked on your paperwork that comes with your Mobile Alarm.
Some people prefer to use a prepaid Sim card. If this is you then we’ll set that up for you and include $25 worth of calls and texts for the first year. We’ll supply you with an account username and password so you can self manage prepaid credit as required.
