Lock your phone to prevent pocket dialing. Also, you can monitor your usage on your phone with the self-serve app or online on self-serve. Or even calling *611 and the automated system can tell you your usage. Learning how to better monitor your own usage will help you greatly.
thanks bud,I have an old flip phone that doesnt lock or take apps,I just thought if I could get a text telling me I was getting close I wouldn't go over

How can you pocket dial with a flip phone? Until Koodo gets something like that, which isn't just going to happen overnight, just make sure to check your usage online on your self-serve or again, by calling *611, its a free call. And hopefully they make something like that.
apparently all it takes is getting a coin on the keypad when its in your pocket,cost me 100 bucks so far,as far as checking 611 everyday I don't think so,thanks anyhow

Geeeeezzz........why wouldn't you just buy a "proper" phone. Apparently that would cost you less than keeping this old bugger. 🙂

Adding the $100 pocket dialing, your phone actually cost you $116 then 😉 Teasing, I agree with you that it would be nice to get a text when you are about to go over your minute limit... if you wish you could post a suggestion in this forum and hope Koodo will consider it. I'm sure other customers would like the idea too...

What phone do you have? Often there are ways to lock flip phones by holding down a certain key on the number pad.

"as far as checking 611 everyday I don't think so" You are the one CHOOSING not to check your usage because you don't feel like it and don't even want to use my suggestions. You're just going to keep getting billed and it will be no one's fault but your own. Also, can you explain to me how a flip phone just opens in your pocket? You would have to physically do it by hand and you would definitely feel the awkwardness in your pocket with your flip phone open

Sounds like you have an LG Shine, although that's a wild guess, I used to love that phone too. 🙂
kinda like the samsung tint it is a samsung but pretty old
Possibly try holding down the pound symbol.
