Keeping my phone number

(I’m currently travelling in se Asia and might be away for about a year or so) - Is it possible to cancel my contract but keep my phone number so I can use it for WhatsApp? And then be able to reinstate it in a year or so’s time? Or is my best bet to get a pay as you go contract and not top up? 

best

If it was me I would go the PAYG route. But keep in mind all PAYG accounts require a topup every certain number of months or else you will loose the number.

I would probably say what @iannewson has there.

Re: Keeping my phone number

One other thought @Calum . You could transfer your mobile number to Andrew and Arnolds VOIP. It would cost you £1.44 a month plus £6 port charge. On the plus side as long as you have data out there you would still be able to make/recieve calls whilst you are out there
