Port your number out to SpeakOut Prepaid which gives 365-Day Expiry on All Top Ups and to whichever carrier you want when you're back.

SpeakOut is a good choice for this, but if you actually want to use that number while you're away, you might want to port it to a VOIP provider instead. That way your contacts can continue to use it, and you can receive the calls wherever you are.
