    How long do you have until you lose your number??

    On Virgin Mobile, you get 120 days from your last payment to reload and keep your number.

    How is it with Straight Talk?

    ST only gives you 30 days from the time your service expires to add more airtime.

    My brother just went 38 days and refilled and has the same number. BUT I would not advocate that anyone do what he did if they want to keep their number.

    He just doesnt care one way or another about keeping it so he does it this way when he gets cash.

    Probably the ones that dont care get to keep it and the ones who protect their numbers lose em on day 31.

    Go figure.

    If your brother has a GSM phone (with a SIM card) and loses his phone number he will have to wait for ST to send him a replacement SIM card for the new phone number. Locked SIM cards can only accept one phone number. Only the two Nokia phones have unlocked SIM`s.

    Yes, thats true but he has a CDMA cell but still I wouldnt mess with ST like he does and risk losing my number especially if I had it a while.
