I am going to spend 6 months in Europe where I am not going to use my American number. For this reason I'd like to know if were possible to stop the plan for this period keeping the number active. Also, I am interested in knowing what happens if I simply stop refilling the account. I am worried that, once I am back, I have to pay back all the months I did not use the plan with an additional fee as well.
Let me know, please, how to proceed in order to keep the number without using the plan.
Thank you for your availability,
Your best bet is probably to change it to the $3/mo plan (and keep funds in it).
Then, when you come back, go buy a new $30 activation kit to get back on that plan (that's the only way back on the plan).
If you stop refilling your account, your line becomes disabled. 90 days after there's no funds in your account, your account is closed.
