Ask The Get Out of Debt Experts

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.


You are not alone. I'm here to help. There is no need to suffer in silence. We can get through this. Tomorrow can be better than today. Don't give up.
