I bought a SIM card and a $45 Simply Pre Paid plan in store on June 11th and payed cash for the transaction. I used the line for 3 weeks and then traveled to Brazil, where I used another local SIM card. Since there was no balance left on my T-mobile account, it got suspended. I'm going back to the US in August and I wish to reactivate my account and get the $45 Simply Pre Paid again. Do I need to pay the $20 activation fee first and/or July's balance? Just $45? Or will it be cheaper to get a new number?
You will likely need to get a new SIM card and number. I do definitely suggest checking to see if your number and plan are still available for use once you're back in the states before gong through the hoops of a second activation just in case!
