Hey there, Joannb75! To pass on lower cost of plans and services to our customers, we are unable to apply funds to accounts for say minutes, monthly plan credit, or free days of service. Your account will still be able to receive phone calls and text messages while suspended. You will also have 60 days in order not to lose your phone number after interruption. We recommend to get into the daily plan for $3 a day to keep services on as long as you will like.
