Will I Lose My Number if I Stop Service?

A number on GSM LTE might be disconnected automatically 30 days after service expiry/cancellation. On Super LTE, a number can be disconnected 50 days after service expiry/cancellation.

You can ‘Snooze’ your line to keep it in service and thus avoid the risk of losing the number. This involves setting up the Auto Pay without any plans, thus letting the line be renewed automatically every 30 days with just the monthly service fee and taxes.

    If I “snooze” my account, will the SIM card remain active, or will I need a new SIM card when I return?

    1. LS,

      The purpose of snooze option is to keep the SIM card active by only paying the bare minimum fee. So yes, your number will remain active.


    Hi, I have a US mobile SIM that I bought last year for when my parents are visiting from overseas. It has not been used for 12 months. Would the account still be usable if I put money in it? Or would I need a new SIM now?

    Is there a limit to how long I can snooze for if I leave it on Auto Pay and my $2/month service fee gets paid every month?

      Nope, at this time there isn’t a limit on how long you can keep your number active with our snooze option. 🙂

    How do I restore service from “snooze” state? Do I simply add voice/text/data?

    1. Hey John,

      Thanks for getting in touch, we’re here to help, if you’re on our GSM LTE network, you can just go ahead and start adding top-ups if you want. Alternatively, you can modify your autopay for the plans that you would like to start using and allow them to kick in when your current month of service ends. If you need further assistance, you can always drop us a line at help@usmobile.com and we’ll be happy to assist.
