I had been outside of the UK for quite long time, and my SIM card is about to be deactivated by 9 June. However, I will be returning to UK on 17 June from Myanmar. Is there a possible way to keep my number as my frineds are in contact with me on that number?
Please suggest a way to extend my deactiviation date.

To keep the sim activated all that you need to do is pop the sim into a mobile and make a call of at least 1 minute long or send a text.
Have a read of this link to explain more.
Cheapest way would be to send a text for 30p, or a MMS for 16p (both to a UK mobile)
(I assume that Myanmar is not in the EU area.)
If you are unable to connect to a roaming network at your current location, you can use the internet to topup your airtime credit with £10.
A £5 goodybag would also reset it, but the bag would be completely wasted, whereas the airtime credit can be used later.
