    Prepaid Digicel phone question

    We purchased a prepaid cell phone from Digicel. They told me that if I didn't use it for 6 months that I would lose my cell #? Is that right? Will I lose my minutes that I already have on it? The phone numbers that I have stored on it?

    Also is there anyway I could do something from the U.S. to keep my number? I think I have a week or 2 before my 6 months is up?

    the numbers that u have stored will stay.
    digicel and setar tell their customers that their numbers expire after X amount of tiime.
    my aruba cell has been idle for more than 6 mos at a whack and the number has stayed.

    suggestion..............but it kind of involves blind faith/trust.
    loan your aruba cell to someone that is going to the island SOON.
    let that person add some minutes and use the phone while on vacation.
    that way it will/may buy you some more time.

    i do know of a few people that may be going and may be willing to borrow your phone and give it some new life.

    We have put the Digical SIM card back in our unlocked phone a couple of times after the 6 month period. Then gone back in the Digicel office to buy time and still had the same number as past years.
    Last time we still had a lot of time left from the previous year so we did not have to buy any at that time. Just started using it.
    I go to the office by Wendys at the traffic circle going into town.
