Porting a number from Verizon to AT&T

Is there a period of time that I must wait before I can port a number from another carrier back to AT&T (it was previously an AT&T account) and thus create a new account with AT&T? I do not want the old AT&T account reopened, I want an entirely new account.

Your number is considered “new” after 6 months.  But you can have a new plan any time.  

If you’re trying to be “new” for a promotion you have to wait 6 months.
