keep cell phone active status for extended time
I'm wondering if AT&T do a prepaid deal where one's mobile phone is inactive (not used) but stays with active status, with a one off payment. My At&T cell phone, has been inactive but I've had an active status, as I've been out of US for 8 months. That date is about to expire but I want my account active so I can retain my cell number, when I'm back in US.
In Australia, where I am now, one can pay $30 to keep cell phone active for 12 months.
