I have a cell phone with Claro and will be away for 5-6 months. Can anyone who has tried this tell me if you can just let your peso card time expire and after several months, purchase a new card and be ready to go with the same phone number?
word has it that you need to replenish your phone with peso cards every 30-90 days otherwise they will de-activate your phone. I did go once 3 months without doing anything and when I came back to DR my phone was still active....but since you are looking at 5-6 months i would bet it would be de-activated.
can you get a hold of someone @ Claro to verify this for you?
or leave the phone with a trusted individual who will replenish your phone with 50 peso cards to at least keep it active until your return? just a thought....
Claro...........it works like this,
if you get a 100 pesos card it will last for a month, after that period if you dont get another card your phone get into parcial suspension which last for 3 months
it gives you a total of 4 months before u lost your number
Since u will be out for longer try to get someone to buy you an electronic card(just giving your phone number they can recharge it) at the end of the 4 months so you can keep your number for another 4 months
