You might if the SIM's already deactivated. Try logging in online or calling *777# from the cellphone to check.

It depends. How long would you estimate "a couple months" to be? Two, three...maybe four or more?

I don't know that I've ever seen a definite answer to this issue altough it comes up from time to time.  So I don't know for certain, but I assume that if you've activated your SIM but never funded it, the account is likely permanently deactivated after 60 days and the phone number is recycled, etc.  (At&t's process for activated and funded accounts is once you reach 60 days beyond the last refill expiration date, the account is deactivated.)

 

You'll probably need to obtain a new SIM and phone number - you can do so by visiting your local Corporate store, and if you'll fund the account while you are in the store they may not charge you for the new SIM.

There must be a happy medium somewhere between being totally informed and blissfully unaware.
