Hi @Ameiya23, you absolutely can switch from prepaid to postpaid and keep your existing number!


You'll need to visit an AT&T company store to complete the change.


Keep in mind the following:

  • A credit check is required
  • A security deposit may be required and must be paid in full before the postpaid account will be activated (refundable after 12 months of service without suspension for non-payment and current account)
  • You can keep your number
  • You won't receive a refund for any funds already paid towards a GoPhone monthly rate plan or package
  • Any unused GoPhone refill cards are non-refundable
  • Your device must be compatible with AT&T if doing a BYOP
  • An activation fee/service change fee may apply
  • Your new account may require a contract

Hope this helps,
