Welcome to the new AT&T Community
We've got a fresh look! Take the tour to see what's new.
I am using AT&T GoPhone currently. At the end of this month, I plan to join my friend's Mobile Share plan. He will be the primary account holder. I want to join this plan and keep my number. (It says that it is possible here: click). We are located in different parts of the country, so going to the store together is not feasible.
I spoke to customer service and found that when my friend is doing the transfer process, he must have the AT&T Store Rep call me and verify the details. But, when he went to the store, the Rep took only our (there are two more people joining the plan) phone numbers and gave him an account number. And then told him to call customer service when we were ready to do the transfer and give that account number. Also, I want to buy a new phone when entering into the contract (iPhone 5S) and is it better for him to get the phone then and there instead of me getting the phone at a store near my place?
Now, I'm not entirely sure if this will work and I am a super paranoid person. I don't want to lose the number at any cost. So, have any of you guys done this? Suggestions?
