Temporarily reactivate already suspended cellular service

I am stationed in Germany and twice a year I travel to the states for two weeks at a time.  I would like to activate my service for the duration of my stay in America, is this possible?  If so, how do I go about doing this?  If this isn’t possible, this should be created as an option, especially for those who are stationed overseas for up to 36 months and travel back and forth.

Hi, @Alex8999,


We'd love to help with this. You can reactivate service if it was suspended due to Federal Government deployment or cancelled for US military deployment by contacting us. If you want to make sure your service is restored before returning to the US, you may want to call +1.314.925.6925. This is our international number. If you call, ask for a callback.


Let us know if we can help with anything else!
