how to remove my number from old go phoe

I have a new calypso go phone.  It was activated at an AT&T store.  I have the same number as my old flip phone (LG B470).  I would like to turn in my old flip phone and have removed all information on it.  But I cannot remove my number from it.  Don't want someone else to have my number or see it.

How can I remove my number before I turn it in to recycle.

If you have activated the same number on your new phone it has already been removed from your old phone. Your old phone should not be able to make calls or send text messages anymore with the same phone number. If you want you can remove the SIM card by popping open the SIM drawer or removing the back of the phone and taking the SIM card out of the Sim slot
