How do I continue using AT&T services after leaving the U.S.?
I am currently on the monthly-paid AT&T Unlimited Plan, but for some reason I left the U.S. this year, and I am not planning to get back in the next one or two years. I am currently in China, though I am not going to use the cellular data, I still need to receive the text messages sometimes, for instance, receiving the verification code when I am logging into my online bank account.
Hence I am wondering if there is any AT&T plan that can serve my need or any way that I can transfer to a prepaid plan with the ability to receive text messages in China? Given that I am currently not in the U.S., I am not able to call AT&T customer service directly, I am hoping I can finish the entire process online or via email.
The whole point is that I want to keep using my current phone number at the lowest price, as I am now still paying $70 each month while I do not use any of the included data.
BTW, if I want to transfer the wireless service to another provider, what is the information that I am going to need and how can I find it?
Thanks in advance guys!
