@brodygabriel Firstnet is a government sponsored network for first responders. The government decides who qualifies for Firstnet, not ATT.

If I have AT&T already and am wishing to get FirstNet on my account will I have to drop my other 2 lines, or do they play nice with each other? Also, will I be able to keep my same phone number?

Any info would be great thanks!

I was able to keep my same number and phone. Any other lines on the account will be on a seperate discounted account. You can only have 1 personal line on FirstNet.

Jumping on an old thread here, but mebbe the Official ATT Help Forums team will chime in.

FirstNet relies on LTE bands 14 and 29 if I recall correctly.

I have a new OnePlus 7T which is certified for all ATT bands. 

Can someone help me confirm that this device will work on FirstNet?

Should I go back and check to see if those specific bands are listed?
