How to Transfer Number from Busted SIM Card

I busted my SIM card this weekend, and now my GoPhone service is unavailable. The customer service representative I called told me I needed to get a new SIM card and then call him back so we can transfer the number from the old SIM to the new one. The question is, what new SIM card should I buy? Where could I find it? And does it cost anything to transfer my number from the old card to the new one?

Hello CinnaKorst6072, the SIM card can be picked up free of charge at any corporate AT&T store, it could be activated with your number there as well.

That wasn't very specific. The problem is, I busted my SIM card by entering the PUK key wrong too many times. What do I do to transfer my number to a new SIM card?

Hi there...

 

What drumn_bass means is that you can go to any AT&T store and get a new SIM card. They will help you transfer the number in the store. 

 

Here's a link to help you find the nearest store: http://www.wireless.att.com/find-a-store

Okay. Is it free?

 

Another good question. Can AT&T Authorised Retailers help me do the number transfer?

As long as you're keeping the same number, there should not be a charge. 

 

Yes, an authorized retailer can help with this.
