recycling old number

I have number that has been disconnected for about 60-90 days it's been recycled? or rathe I am not able to claim it at the moment. I was told that the number is being held by ATT. I was wondering if someone can tell me how long it  will be before I can try to reclaim the number. and if I can do it form any carrier or if I will have to do it from ATT. Some people are saying 3 months after the 60-90 days others are saying 6. Others are telling me it will take years. If anyone could give me some information on this I would greatly appreciate it.

Even if recycled you can’t choose it. They are randomly generated by computer
