Transferring my phone number to another company


Transferring my phone number to another company



I want to transfer my phone number to another company.  How hard is that to do with AT&T and what can I do.  I already completed my contract.  I want a cheaper phone because the iPhone is way too expensive month to month.  I will have a different phone, but would like to keep my number.  Any help would be gladly appreciated.

Re: Transferring my phone number to another company

Go to the other company, sign a contract and they will port the number to your new phone. When the number is ported, your old account with AT&T will be automatically closed.

It is a very easy process and only takes a few hours.

You CANNOT close your AT&T account before the number is ported or you will lose the number.
