Ok, I apologize if this has been answered here, it probably has..

 

I want to know If I add a line on my account, from online can I also Buy a phone online, and choose the number online? The number is a number my father used to have Recently.

Re: Adding a Line online

Yes you can add a line online and buy a the phone online.

Unfortunately, if your father no longer owns the number, you cannot "choose" that number. You will need to get a number that AT&T has in their pool of numbers. The only numbers that you can bring with you are numbers that are currently being used. Once they close the account, the number reverts to the company that originally owned the number.

Ok thank you. I figured the number wouldn't be able to have that specific number. Thanks again
