BYOD existing messages and voicemails

I have an existing ATT account. If I want to add a BYOD android phone what happens to the existing messages and voicemails? The phone is on another carrier at this time. I want to keep the messages and voicemails. What is the best way to retain these messages and voicemails?

Hello, @DSF116pem,


Thank you for reaching out. Most of the data on your device should be carried over. You can use the AT&T Mobile Transfer app to be sure.


We'd love to see if we have a way to preserve your voicemails. What type of device is this? Please let us know.
