    Is out bet agreement still effective/valid?

    1) If I fail to commit/honour/fullfill the payment arrangement agreement will I still be able to have the re-activation fee to be waved.

    2) The agent told me that if I commit/honour/fullfill the payment arrangement agreement, then the re-activation will be waved. I was late in making the payment by one day, so will the agreement still be valid/effective? ( can I use valid/effective?).

    3) Is out bet agreement still effective/valid? (Which is more appropriate, effective or valid?).


    Hope somebody can help me correct the above sentences. Thanks.

    Re: Is out bet agreement still effective/valid?

    I am struggling to understand anything you are trying to say here. Are you talking about paying off gambling debts?

    Let's consider them one at a time. I'll simplify #1: I think you might mean

    "If I fail to honour the payment agreement will I still be able to have the re-activation fee waived?"

    If that's what you mean I still don't understand 're-activation fee'.

    3) Is our bet agreement still effective/valid? (Which is more appropriate, effective or valid? Both are equally appropriate).

    I have no idea what an "out bet" is, so I am assuming "out" is a mis-spelling of "our".
    I'm not a teacher of English, but I have spoken it for (almost) all of my life....

    Thanks for replying.
    I had a payment arrangement agreement with Rogers company for my cellphone bill. My bill for last month was very expansive due to the reason that I have made many long distance call to my parents in my home country. I haven't met them in four years :(.

    Your bill was very expensive, not expansive.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
