Transferring number to an already activated sim

Hi! I bought a at&t sim card today at Walmart and I went to activate it thinking it would ask me if I had a number I wanted to port but it didn't and it assigned a number to me, but I haven't made a payment to fully activate it because I want to make sure I am still able to port/transfer my number from MetroPCS to AT&T prepaid sim card account even though it has a phone number assigned to it...?

You have to call AT&T to have them port in your number to an existing line. This is free within the first 30 days
