Activate IPhone 5s


Activate IPhone 5s

When I got an IPhone 8 I turned off the cell service on my IPhone 5s and gave to my son to use like a mini IPad. I noticed I am still paying for cell service on a phone number not being used. How do I connect The IPhone 5s to the unused number?

Re: Activate IPhone 5s

Hello, @JohnLeMay,

Yes, you can port your unused number into the iPhone 5s your son is using. Any AT&T Store can set you up and activate it for you. To help you save time, go ahead and schedule an appointment at the store so you can get in and out with no hassle.

Let us know if we can assist you with anything else.
