I'm really not getting your billing system. You text me with a due date then cut my phone off,. Once at Chritsmas then at a funeral both times I'm out of town. Then charge me 35.00

Paying your bill on time would prevent any suspensions. They only suspend services if there is at least two bills past due.

Even on the CLP, there is a chance it can still be under $200 after 2 - 3 months of non-payment.

So call them and have an actual agent look into it instead of just guessing. Maybe it has nothing to do with billing and has to do with a network issue.

Collection path depends on credit class with Koodo, so it could be shorter or longer depending on payment history, broken payment arrangements, etc..

Anytime you risk a past due balance getting carried over you risk the chance of your services being suspended. Along comes late payment charges, reconnection charges at $35 plus the bill that is due and owing. Point being, it's important to ensure your bills are payed in full and on time to prevent this from happening.

Having a cell phone plan is not free, nor without obligations, Dave. It does pay to pay... so to say :)

You're not going to get any sympathy here. Pay your bill or login to self serve to make payment arrangements. I get an emailed bill every month. I think you only get a text when you're late.

I get a text and email when my bill is ready. The text first, then email shortly after :P

If you are past due, then you run the risk of your service being suspended. If you are on the Spending Cap and you hit $200 or more, then the account will suspend itself.

We're not "service reps", we're fellow customers like yourself... most of us get bills too :)

If you go over your limit, your service will be suspended even before your due date.

If you have a spending limit then Koodo will take what has already been billed and any unbilled charges that are not on your bill yet - if these go over $200 (spending limit) then your account is suspended. And then a $35 reconnection charge is added to your next bill as well.

How do you normally pay your bill? Is it through your bank? Are you sure you have the right account number setup?

Are you on the credit limit program?

I guess what Sophia said was ignored...

Maybe you should call Koodo since none of us can see your account. They can give youmore details as to why this happened...

You didn't come here with a question, Dave, you came with a complaint. I don't see why you should be leaving in a huff because people don't agree with what you were saying: that Koodo's billing system is a joke. Every single one who answered you today is reasonable and understanding otherwise, and if you'd posted your message as a question ("how do I see when and what I owe on my bill?", for example), you'd find everybody quite helpful.

Still, I wish you all the best, bye :)

Yep take it as a learning experience. Honestly, you're just hurting yourself in the long run by not paying by costing yourself more $$$.

It seem that our friend Dave has redefined service rep to mean anyone who doesn't agree that Koodo is in the wrong.

Also, good luck "moving on" with any other provider with service interruptions and late bills on your credit report.

Mr. Brown is right - some of us are service reps, but ALL of us on here are (or have been) Koodo customers.

We are on here as Koodo customers to help out others and because it is a bit of a game with the point system and badges.

There are people that are on here as employees (they are not that hard to pick out - it says employee next to their name), but everybody else is doing this to help others

Understandable that you want to complain about your bill, but you really are complaining to the wrong forum, we don't see personal information - if you wanted to complain about a bill, or get details that you cannot find on self serve then the people that you want to call and talk to are customer service so that they can explain things on your bills to you.

I am glad that I come on here and I learn something new from the other people on this forum....so if they are all "customer service reps" then thank you to all.

I prefer to pay my bill in advance, before it is due. Radical concept!

You may want to look into automatic payments. It's what I do so I don't forget to pay my bill. During my 15 months as a customer, automatic payments have ensured that my bill is always paid off on time.

In fact, I do that with all my services, and even the credit card used is setup to take the minimum payment from my bank account if I forget (I don't like to keep a balance and pay interest, but at least it doesn't count as a missed payment). I realize that some people want to see their bill before they authorize payment, but if there are issues then I'll fight it later. I don't want to run the risk of damaging my credit rating.
