First bill overcharged?

I signed up for Koodo (first time) earlier this month for the 3GB/month and unlimited call & text in Canada plan, which is $45/month. I bought a new phone too, and I’m paying monthly for it, which brings the total to $70/month. I know the first bill should be more than normal, but I’m a little concerned with how much it is.

I got a text today saying I owe $142.92 for my first bill. My monthly charges are $92.88, the usage is $18.60 and the partial charge is $15.00.

I don’t understand this, and frankly the monthly charges and usage concerns me the most. I’m paying for unlimited text & call. I’m also paying for data, which I only used 700MB out of 3GB this period, so I’m not paying extra. Why am I being charged for usage? And why’s my monthly charged so high?

I should mention I got a new phone number along with the new phone itself. I cancelled my old number (and plan) prior to getting it. I’ve already paid off my bill for the old company.

What do you see for usage charges specifically in your bill? Is there any calls being charged? Anything it says moee specifically page 3 onwards?

Thank-you for your response!

So, I found my billing details just now :sweat_smile: It shows I got charged $18 for a 30 minute call. I think that was from my aunt because she’s long distance, but I thought I was paying for Canada wide calling.

So, did you receive a call from your aunt? Or you called her?

Does she have a Canadian number or US number?

@xDiannax US and international calls indeed are extra charges.  However you can lower the rates by a lot. Take a look at the options here. Depending on the frequency you may choose the $3 add-on for $0.05 a min to the US or the unlimited calls for $15 a month.
