How can I get a new cell phone number?

I currently have a plan with ATT, but was looking into changing my current cell number for another. I was first wondering if that was possible and secondly how I would be able to do so. I have been getting many prank calls and would just like to have a new number.

Get you bill or log onto your online account and get the dates and phone numbers of the prankster. With that information in hand, call Customer Care 800-331-0500. Explain to the rep what has been happening and give them the information you collected. That way, you have your ammunition in hand to prove your need to get another number. Remember to speak to the rep like you would want someone talking to you and you can get a lot done quickly.

 

Good luck and let us know how it went.

Or you can just call and ask for a new number.

Someone here on the Forums stated that it cost about $40 to get your number switched. (I don't remember the circumstances, though.)

 

I don't think that that is true...?

Hey drumn-bass, I thought you had to provide a reason for getting your number changed? Or maybe that was to get it done at no charge....
