Keeping phone number when switching from Cricket to AT&T

Recently I activated an "unlocked" phone (with AT&T start up screen) at Cricket and have had spotty cell service in certain areas, including the one I live in. I am considering just switching to AT&T (to avoid returning the phone online and downgrading to a low end phone for the same price I paid for this refurbished Galaxy S7), but when I went into the store the girl I talked to said I would not be able to keep my phone number. I find this very hard to believe, is it true? What is the reason why I would not be able to transfer my phone number to AT&T?

ATT owns Cricket lock stock and barrel....  Its the same network.

Yes, I am aware, which is why it baffles me even more that I would be unable to transfer my number to AT&T if I were to switch....

Go to an AT&T company store to port your number.  I do not believe it’s true, I do think whoever you spoke with didn’t know how
