I want to save my U.S. phone number, so I can use it again next year. And by 'save' I mean to keep the number but no service. I have a Verizon prepaid plan and would need just to keep my number. This way I can save a lot of money.
Because of COVID-19 I am outside the United States, but would need the same number next year hopefully after the pandemic.
According to Verizon customer service, prepaid plans can't be suspended.
Can I transfer the number to a cheaper service provider which has pay as you go plans in the U.S.?
Edit: Google Voice will CALL my mobile phone for verification, how can I get the call while outside the US? I would need to disable the Airplane mode I guess.
