Change cell phone number


Change cell phone number

It is my understanding that I can change a cell phone number within 30 days of getting it to another number and you can check availability. Is that true? I spoke to a customer service rep, she was polite but I am not sure if she was up to date on what you can do. Thank you.

Re: Change cell phone number

Hello @Phone105


We can definitely provide the answers with changing your phone number!


If you decided to change your current phone number within the 30 days after activating it, it would be free of charge. If the current number is still active past the 30 days, a $36 change fee would be included.


You can review our Change your Wireless Number article for more information and options to start the process online while accessing your MyAT&T Account, or visiting your local AT&T store for further assistance.


We hope this helps, and thanks for reaching out to us!
