keep US number while international


Oct 8, 2012
Is there a way to keep my US cellphone number while I'm traveling for an extended period internationally (2+ years)? I don't need to make a lot of calls or receive texts. I don't need internet access during this time at all. All I need is for the number to remain active, so that, for example, if my bank needs to call me, they can still do that.

I don't mind paying extra roaming fees. As I said, I don't think I'll use much of it anyways.

For all the other regular phone things, I'll have another phone to do those.
