Do I need to add money to keep my gophone account active to port my number after my balance expires?

My balance is going to expire if I don't refill it by Aug 21st, but I want to get a new smartphone plan (I currently have a dumbphone). Do I need to add money to the account if I want to port the number to a new plan after this date? My husband is eliglible for an upgrade later in the month (31st?)
