My daughter is in School out of the USA and is home 2x a year for about a month at a time. is there a way we can keep her phone # active without paying monthly on our contract plan? she currently has a global phone that she is able to use in the UK on a UK plan. While she is in the UK, she switches her phone plan here to an old not so smart phone while she is gone then reactivates her smart phone when she comes home. is this the right way to do this?
You can suspend the line without billing for up to 180 days a year. But it will re-activate after 90 days. So you'd need to suspend it again if you want to continue past 90 days. Also you need to specify suspend WITHOUT billing. That might help. She can also do what she has been doing and possibly combine both methods.
