I have a pay monthly contract (ONLY SIM card), and am travelling abroad for 4 months, can I put my phone on hold? If not, what can I do to keep the same offer and number until I return? Thank you..

which exact offer it depends.

 

But best way is to pay for the 4 months you are away if it is a tariff no longer available

It will be 4 x £21.

I don't want to use my phone when I'm abroad, can I put it on hold, without paying for those 4 months?

No, unfortunately not, you have to pay to keep the contract going or cancel it, but you won't necessarilly get the same deal again as you would be a new customer....
