Move from prepaid to postpaid line on husband’s FirstNet Family acct


I have a prepaid ATT account. My current phone is done, time to get a new one but I need to keep the #. Ideally would like to switch to a postpaid line on my husbands FirstNet Family acct, and buy a iPhone 12 or 13 mini with installments.

How can I accomplish this? The att rep in my local store said not possible unless I wait 3mo and by that time the FirstNet family promotion may be expired.

thanks for the help

The only way to switch between prepaid and postpaid and keep the number, is at an AT&T store. Find a different store. Whoever you're dealing with just isn't thirsty enough for the sale.

Hi helpmeplz11223344, we are here to point you in the direction for your Prepaid to Postpaid migration!


Like our ACE said, please be sure to visit an AT&T Corporate store and not an AT&T authorized retailer since the authorized retailer will be unable to perform the request. 


We hope this helps! Reach back out to us with any additional questions! Thank you for visiting AT&T Community Forums!
