It almost sounds as if the cell tower is behaving a bit badly at times, Leah. But if you want Koodo to investigate, I suggest you file a ticket with them (call *611) to see if your particular neck of the woods might be having reception problems, then you'll know for sure :)
Weather conditions and interference can cause reception to drop. We are playing with forces unknown... seriously though, lol... radio frequencies/ electro static/ flares... alot of variables... magnetic conditions in the ground... some possibilities.

When it happens, try pulling the battery and sim card for 60 seconds. If this fixes the connection for a while and then it drops again it's probably a failing sim card.
