temporary suspend atnt prepaid

I am gonna be stay abroad for 4 or more months, I want to temporary suspend my atnt prepaid, and still keep the number so I can use it after I return to US. I've seem the solution about refill money into prepaid account, but that answer was couple years ago, Is it still working now? If it is, how much should I refill into the account to make my number still available for 6 months or more?

You don’t suspend. You need to change to a pay per use plan and refill your account sufficiently to keep it open until you return. A $100 refill is good for a year, anything less expires in 90 days. Since you will be gone 6 months, do the $100 refill.
