How to activate a disconnected phone number?

I suppose this is posted in the right place (if not I apologize) but Long story short, a family member of mine disconnected their phone number but failed to update their accounts that require 2 step verification codes, and those codes are now being sent to a dead phone number. Is there a way to recover that phone number? I've been calling atnt for the past few days and they said that there was no way because it's been more than 2 months since the number was disconnected (Which couldn't be possible, I say its been only more than a few weeks because calls from that phone number were still being made Mid Aug before it was disconnected)

You already have a correct answer straight from AT&T. I don't see why you think a bunch of other customers can tell you anything different (we can't)
