AT&T prepaid plan user to switch a plan



I am working overseas and traveling back to visit family members quite often. I am currently using a prepaid plan for 45 dollars/month. 

My next payment date will be 6th of July, and I am leaving the country in early July. I just want to know what plan I can choose online from my account to keep my number with 100 dollars prepaid into my account while I am away from the country. Please advise. Appreciate your help.

Just to be clear, having a total of $100 in your account does nothing, you need to put $100 in at once if you want to hold your account for a year.


I believe you just need to pick a pay as you go plan (and then not use it).
