gophone rate plan vs account balance expiration
I'm confused about expiration dates for my prepaid phone account. I have the $40 monthly plan, which expires 7/21/14 (tomorrow!), but I also have an account balance, which expires 10/12/14. I'm currently out of the country, and will be back briefly at the end of August (leaving again on the 27th), so would prefer not to renew the $40 plan until July 28 or later so that I can have it when I'm back in the states. My current balance is less than $40, so my plan will not automatically renew. Will I lose my number & sim if I don't renew the $40 plan until the end of July? Or does my balance, which says it expires 10/12/14, hold it?
