Porting a landline number to existing ATT account

Hi,

I read a previous post about porting, and apparently I need to visit your page the allows me to see if the number is available to be ported. I did that, my number is apparently okay to port, but the only option I see is to take on a new account and or service. My need is to port my landline number to an existing ATT account, held by my wife and myself. How would I go about doing so?

You have to contact Sales to port in a number and make sure that number is still active.

Re: Porting a landline number to existing ATT account

You also have to have a device to port the number to.  I recommend you do this in an ATT store, phone in hand.  They can port the number and set up the SIM card in a cell phone.

You can use a previous phone if you have one, or look into options for purchasing an inexpensive phone from the Gophone rack.  Or unlocked phones from Best Buy.

Re: Porting a landline number to existing ATT account

Thanks guys. I know the number is still available, as it's my current landline.

Much appreciated!

Thank you.  I am ready and would like to have a landline phone number, included with my current account.  I have a landline phone device.

What are the next steps to make this happen?
