Back in the time when AT&T was "the Bell System", you could do exactly
that; retain control of a non-working number that you previously
"owned" simply by paying a small monthly fee. For all practical
purposes, it simply was a non-working number except that it was
blocked from being re-assigned as long as you paid the fee.

Alas, I don't remember the name for said service. Maybe they don't
even do that anymore.
