Seems like a near certainty. If you report the card lost, they'll issue a new number. If you don't call to activate in a certain amt. of time, they'll probably call you. At any rate, I don't think they suspend the annual fee if the account is in limbo due to a lost card. If you just say you need a new card with the same number, it won't require activation, so it will obviously still be active.
Sounds like you're trying to let the card lie dormant without closing the account and without incurring an annual fee. Why not just call and ask them for that? If they want to keep you as a customer, they might be willing to do it.
