No. You would have a new, US number during that time. Once you come back to Canada and put your old sim card back in, you're back to using your normal number

Then you need a post paid account from your choice of carrier.

You could put a voicemail announcement on your current phone indicating your temporary number, and asking your callers to dial that number.

Update on this folks: times are changing, we have more prepaid customers so we are changing the status of this idea by YOU to 'under consideration'.
