Getting own plan

I am currently on my dad's family plan with AT&T but I want to get my own prepaid plan. I tried to do it online but it says I can't keep my number. Is there any way to get off my dad's plans and get my own while still keeping my old number?

Yes but you need to go to an ATT corporate store. Moving a line from postpaid to prepaid can only be done in a corporate store. You will either need your dad with you or you need to be an authorized user on his account.

I was able to switch to my own plan and keep my number in 2017, but I did it in person. I think there was a small charge for keeping the number.
