Account closed

Account was closed due to unrelated illness that happened to me, just got back on my feet trying to figure out how to reinstate a closed account. Can anyone help me with this, not much information online.

You would have to contact AT&T directly, pass a credit check in order to reinstate your account and pay all past balances which may include the full balance on a phone as well as service. 

If it's been more than 2 weeks it may not be possible

How do I get the phone number back at least? I can't get into my bank account or anything how am I supposed to go about my day to day life without my phone number?
