Can I use same Sim after three months ?

I am Indian citizen visiting US on business . Enjoyed my prepaid service for three weeks. I will leave this week. I paid for this month only, with no Autopay.

I will have to travel back to US after three months.

If I retain my SIM and want to pay for the month after I arrive, will prepaid account still be active? or I have to buy a new Sim and get a new number?

A prepaid account is automatically closed if the account balance is $0 for more than 60 days. If you don’t refill your account before you leave, it will be closed by the time you return and the SIM card will be deactivated. However, if you refill your account with at least $25, the account will still be open. A $25 refill is good for 90 days, if you return by then, the $25 will still be there and can be used to pay for a plan.
