I Came to Aussie Last Year and Can’t Afford My Mobile Phone. – Johnny


“Dear Steve,

I came to aussie in december last year and i got on a mobile phone contract i lost my job and i cannot pay it anymore. My phone got cut and they are threatening to report me to dun and bradstreet.

I got a new job but i get very little and they are asking for a lot



Dear Johnny,

Mobile phone contracts I’ve seen in Australia can require people to pay the total monthly charge through the end of the agreement, instead of just a termination charge to end the contract early.

So what if the do report you as being late, you are. Just make a monthly payment promise you can afford month after month until this debt is repaid. If you promise a payment that is higher than you can afford and then fail to make the payment it will only create more problems and grief.
