Change my AT&T wireless number to a Skype number I also own

Hi,

I have a Skype number I've used for a few years, but when I got my AT&T line I didn't know I could port that number.

Is it possible to change my wireless number to the Skype number I own?

If so, would this affect my current 2-year contract?

 

Thanks.

 

Freddy

as long as skype allows you to port it to att you can request a number change by porting in that number. It will not affect your contract at all. Just call 611 so they can transfer you to ports and activations to start the process. There might be a 36 dollar number change fee though.

might want to talk to them, not sure it is possible to port a number to a phone that already has an existing number

It sure can be done, AT&T would refer to it as a port in teleconversion, quite easy for the porting department to do actually.
