Hey there! 

1. Our free numbers are recycled within our system if a number is inactive for a period of time. That period of time may change between accounts. Please note that in order to keep a number active, you have to be the one to either make a call or send a text. 

2. You can certainly keep the number for free if you follow those steps^ by sending a text or making a call once every couple of days. Otherwise, you can subscribe to a premium subscription for $2.99/month USD to make sure that the number is locked to your account.
