Switching from Straight Talk to AT&T

I currently have 3 phones with Straight Talk.  I have one that is unlocked that I will be switching now to AT&T.  My question is, I also have an Iphone 4 and a Samsung Galaxy S3 that I bought with Straight Talk/ as Straight Talk phones.  Can I switch these over to AT&T with problem as well?  If so, do I need to get SIM cards?

Re: Switching from Straight Talk to AT&T

I had an old Nokia flip phone 2g with AT&T prepaid which expired on 12/31. I just bought a Straight Talk Apple iphone 5s prepaid (AT&T was out of stock). Is it possible to switch that over to AT&T with the number I had? If so, please let me know how to do this.

 

Also, my old number is still active with a balance 

"Current Balance  $8.90 Expires on Jan 19, 2017"

Thanks!

Re: Switching from Straight Talk to AT&T

If you have to wait 24 hrs then what do you do in the meantime... I went to target because they were having a deal on phones 2x. Both times they had trouble porting the number over so they had them cancel everything. Can they give you the phone without knowing they successfully ported your number over?

I have a question I had at&t before but I switched to straight talk and is there any way I can switch back to at&t and keep the same number?

@Wlugo1  Yes, of course.  You need your ST account number and PIn code.  Go to an ATT store and have the number ported back.
