Charges to use Prepaid Number?


Charges to use Prepaid Number?



I recently signed contract for two years for two lines. Before I was using At&t TO GO service. I was asked if I liked to move previous number to this new phone and I agreed. No one has informed me about the hidden $40 charges behind this. No company charge to use the previous number for new phone. As I got two lines I am charged $80 for both line and that is other than the activation and other charges that I have paid when I purchased the phone. I definitely don't want to pay this amount and I would like to look into this matter and canceled these charges
