After a number is purchased, the associated account is billed every 30 days. Additionally each message is billed at time of send/receive. It is your responsibility to keep your account funded enough to afford the monthly charge, otherwise your number will be permanently revoked.
Each account can only have 1 number, but you may have multiple accounts unless you have been banned from the service.
