How soon to port back to AT&T Prepaid?

Just last week I ported my number to another prepaid carrier and already realize there are some shortcomings with their service. How soon can I port my number back to AT&T Prepaid? I read something about a 90-day minimum time, but am not sure if that applied to prepaid plans. I own my own phone, so no obligations to get out of there.

And would I be able to sign up for the $300/year offer that they currently have even though I'm coming back after a short time?

Yes. Many users have gotten onto the $300 plan buy just porting out, and then porting right back in again.

Hello,

You can port back anytime. I recommend using your already paid for service for the month and go to a store to port back when that months almost up (shut off autopay and don’t wait until it’s already out of funds or it can’t be ported).
