How do I avoid paying a $2345 cell phone bill on a phone that was stolen?!

So I just opened my Canadian cell phone bill which I thought was put to the lcheapest plan I could (to maintain a Canadian voicemail for my grandparents...long story), and I found a $2345.56 cell phone bill for charges I did not make! I am currently in NORWAY and have been for the last 4 months. I left my phone deactivated without a charger at my parent's place. So its physically impossible for me to have made these charges!!
It appears that somehow it got stolen or there a major error in my bill. I'm freaking out, and planning to call Koodo (my provider) once they open this morning.
I'm in university, broke, and overseas and there is NO possible way I would be able to afford the bill as is. Has anyone dealt with this sucessfully in the past? Or have any advice so I can calm myself the heck down and figure out how to talk to the cell phone people? I've had terrible luck in the past dealing with cell phone companies and dealing with them again is not something I am looking forward to.
