Why is there a $36 charge?
Short (but accurate) answer: Because that's what AT&T charges to change your telephone number.
Longer (but more speculative) answer: Because there are costs to AT&T when customers change phone numbers, so AT&T has a vested interest in keeping those instances to a minimum. AT&T has decided $36 is the right number to be palatable to those with a real need to change their number while being a deterrent to those who might change their number on a whim.

I get phone calls from unknown sources, and I want to change my number, but since I seen how much it costs, now I'm having second thoughts. I don't know how to block the unwanted numbers either.

Trying to change my phone number and I get "For your security, we can’t change your number online or over the phone. Visit your nearest AT&T store to change it. (MNC_27)".
Why can't I change it online?
