Hi. I have a contract-free, pay-as-you-go cellphone. My feature plan is $25 for up to 250 minutes every 30 days. Since I am currently in China and won't use the phone for a while, I am wondering if my number will be recycled if I don't refill my account? How long does AT&T usually wait before they decide to recycle a number?
There is a 60 day "grace period" that exists even after your account expiration date. It preserves your phone number and all other account information for the time being. Should this period be exceeded, you will lose everything and must re-establish a new account with a new phone number.
