How to pause my prepaid account for over 3 months without it expiring?

I’m currently an international student studying in the states. I will be going back home in the summer for over 90 days but I don’t want my number to get expired. If I add money into my account, is there any way for me to not get charged during that 3 months period?

Yes. Before you leave, refill your account with $25. A $25 refill is good for 90 days. That won’t be enough to renew your plan. When that $25 expires, you then have another 60 days to renew your plan before your account is closed. It will cost you that $25 if you return after it expires but that is likely less than continuing to pay for your plan.
