Current situation: we just moved to Europe and we are returning to the US in a few years. I added the international plan. It is very expensive and I am looking for a way to keep the cost down while keeping the same number.
I have a local cell phone and wifi, so all I need is occasionally receive texts and phone calls. Is there a way to switch to a lower payment plan or prepaid and use it on airplane mode? Can I still receive texts that way?
Thank you in advance, I am researching online but I am not finding what I’m looking for.
Hi Tobius, we definitely undertsand wanting to be on a plan that aligns with your needs, and we'd be happy to review options with you. To clarify, you'd like to keep your US Verizon number active while you're living abroad for a few years, is that correct? Will you be visiting the States while you're living abroad for the next few years?
Thanks for that information. Do you have an idea as to how often you will be using your US number while in Europe? Does this affect just one phone?
