Use of old Moto X

Last year I upgraded from a Moto X first gen to a Samsung S8. Is my old phone usable as an emergency 911 phone?

Hi @bobp.5lps16!

Welcome to the community!

Yes. Federal law requires all phones that are functional to be able to call 911 without having service.

From this article Emergency Services: 911 and E911 – Republic Help :

All RW phones, regardless of which plan you’re on with Republic (including the WiFi only plan) are able to call emergency services on any compatible cellular network. This feature works even on phones without an active line of service.

I hope that helps!
