Can I keep my phone number while abroad?

Hey guys,


I was wondering if someone knows if I can keep my phone number while living in Europe for a couple of months?
I have a Verizon prepaid card and won't use it for the next 3-4 months. Is there a way to keep it except having to
keep paying 45 $ for the plan every month when not able to use it?

Thanks

If the account is not refilled for over 59 days, it is canceled and number recycled. 

Call and ask about reducing your rate and auto pay to keep the number active.

I think there is a wifi only plan that is less than $45 so it could be an option to keep the line active while they are on the trip.

I'm most definitely NOT a VZW employee. If a post answered your question, please mark it as the answer.

Pity Verizon doesn't offer a pay per use like ATT.  $25 hold the line for 90 days.

There are services like number barn. You can park your number with them for $2.00 a month.  There are also other phone number parking services.  Number barn will also allow you to do voice mail to text messages and call forwarding for other fees.
