How to keep cell phone number without an active plan

Is it possible to keep my cell number without having an active plan? I’m currently on a no contract monthly plan, but due to COVID, won’t be returning to Canada any time soon. Do I need to keep a plan with a provider in order to retain my number?

Accepted Answer

Hi Stephanie. Which carrier are you with? Is it a prepaid SIM? Depending on the carrier, you have to use it every X amount of months to keep it active and yours.
