Requirements to suspend service

Only paid federal government employees and their families who are deployed on official business to international locations qualify for this service. Volunteer workers, such as Peace Corps and missionary work, aren't eligible.
  • Suspend service during time out of the country.
  • Suspend service for up to 999 days.
  • Receive a discounted cost of $0.01 per month for each mobile number on your monthly wireless plan.
