Welcome to the community!
A temporary suspension is offered for a maximum of 12 months and a minimum 2 months. The cost is $7 for each month and you can only do it once in a 12 months period.
Also something to note a temporary suspension can only be added at the beginning of a billing cycle.
If you currently have a contract you will not be eligible for a temporary suspension it is only for plans that are on a month to month.

Absolutely! You would need to break your contract and pay off the phone before we can apply the suspension on your account for $30 per billing cycle. You will also need to go on pre-authorized payments or pay your account in advance to cover the suspension fees during your time away.
The suspension is offered for a minimum of two months and a maximum of 12 months. Keep also in mind that the suspension and monthly suspension fee will start as of the last day of your next billing cycle.

I'm wondering if there's a way that allow me to suspend my phone plans (which contains 2 mobile lines), as I'm going abroad for 2 months. I already know that the suspension can also be added at the beginning of the billing cycle, however, my start date of billing cycle is pretty close to the end of a month, do I really have to pay for the rest of the unused month?
Plus, when I come back to Canada, when and how can I resume my phone plan?
Hey @Eulina, thank you for reaching out to us about your situation!
I've moved your post here as this thread deals with temporary suspension.
We can suspend at $30 per month however it has to start as of the new cycle. Any fees before it starts would still apply. You also need to make sure to not be on an agreement to apply a temporary suspension.
