We will be more than happy to look into your inquiry regarding the transfer of your phone number from one device to another, @patb.


As our ACE stated, you will need a new physical SIM card, or have the eSIM activated on your iPhone.


We recommend you visit our article on Replacing SIM Cards, which will give you more information on how to order a new physical SIM card, or get a new eSIM for the device.


If you require further assistance please reach back out to us, and we will be more than happy to work towards a resolution.

You need to have AT&T make you a new SIM card for the physical Sim slot, or call them and have them activate the esim with your existing phone number.
