Transferring ATT number to Google Voice?

I know its possible,  but just wondering if anyone has done this and as such as any tips and tricks to ensure the process occurs without a hitch. 

 

For quite some time I've been wanting to get a new cell phone number to be able to screen out old callers, yet I dont want to totally lose access to my current number as I've had it for a super long time. 

 

I know its possible to transfer it to google voice, the part I'm un sure about is how to ensure that my att line doesn't get canceled in the process as normally when a company receives a transfer request the old line tied to it is automatically canceled. 

 

Also when getting a new number, is it possible to have a say in what new number is assigned or is this just completed automatically?

I don't know about adding a new number, but I know when porting to a prepaid account, you can use google voice to babysit the number, so it isn't recycled.

anyone done this recently? 

 

Transfer to google voice. 

 

looks like i'm going to be forced into it since my plan to transfer to another carrier then back to att wont work to do a bogo since it has to be away from att for 60 days or more.
