Well thank you for taking responsibility and making an effort by being honest about your situation.

To prevent your phone line from being cut off and having that horrible reconnection fee on top of your bill, I highly recommend calling Koodo (*611 on your koodo cell - it's a free call) and let them know you will be late with your bill and arrange for payment at a later date.

You also mentioned that your bill is outrageous...check out your bill summary and compare it to the plans available. You may be on the wrong plan and switching to a better plan may save you money.

@ Salina, indeed your current bill is high because of the accumulation of months of invoices that were missed. I would suggest to contact us asap and make a payment arrangements so it will not jeopardize your personal credit rating and become a bigger issue later. Dial #123 and listen to the prompts relating to payments.

Seems I can't private message you Salina. I had an idea that may help. Unrelated to Koodo service so I didn't want to post it here. :)
