Cancellation


I am a traveller who came in Canada on Jul 17th 2017. And started to use my phone from Jul 18th 2017. And on Jan 11th 2018, my visa ends and I must go out of Canada. On Dec 6th 2017, I called to Service Center(1-866-995-6636), and I told him I want to cancel my phone plan and he said that it works and I also received cancellation confirm e-mail. The e-mail said that I can use my phone till Jan 12th 2018. But my new phone bill on Dec 27th 2017 said that I should pay the whole month from Dec 28th 2017 to Jan 27th 2018. And what the worse is, my phone plan is charged my TD account which I must close Jan 11th. Usually Koodo charges my bill on the day 15th everymonth. So if Koodo does same as before, they cannot charge my bill. How can I do? I already sent them e-mail but there's no reply and I also called their service center again, but more tjan 1hr there's no answer.

Since it is a postpaid bill you pay 1 month ahead of time then overage gets added on afterwards.  In this case, Koodo charges for the entire month and then issues a credit when the cancellation occurs.  This is because, depending on how many minutes/data you use for your partial month, it may be better to get charged the entire month rather than have a pro-rated month that incurs overage charges.  Koodo chooses the lowest bill from these 2 options, which they wont be able to calculate until your Jan 27 bill.

If you need to speak to a rep to determine the easiest way to pay your final bill, i suggest sending Koodo a private message via facebook or twitter so you wont need to wait on hold

The wait time on facebook is also terrible though. 3,4 days or more, at least.

Calling early in the day (9am) might be the best bet.
