I am living outside the U.S. for the next couple years (with two trips home per year). Are there any options to keep my mobile number so that I can activate it for the 4 weeks i'm in the states each year, but not continue to pay monthly service fees for the other 48 weeks when the phone is not in use?
I don't believe so. An account has to remain active or at least suspended, but the suspension costs per month. The only other option is to switch to a gophone account but to keep that active costs too.
