Recovery Phone Number

If I transfer my at&t phone number to a prepaid account will I still be able to use it as my recovery and two part authentication number for my email?

Thanks for your response.  Will the number also still work for the two part authentication to access the email account?

Hello @tampa steve, let's get you the information you need. 

 

To answer your question, you will not be able to use the number as a recovery for 48 hours after the transfer process. After 48 hours, everything should work just fine.

 

We hope this puts your mind at ease and answers your question.

 

Thank you for contacting AT&T Community Forums.
