Restrictions around canceling a line


Restrictions around canceling a line

Greetings everyone! new to the forums, I have a question I haven't seen answered...hope someone can help!



I am considering AT&T's BOGO offer on the iPhone 8s. That offer requires a new line of service. I don't need a new line of service, but I am wondering: if I add a line to receive this offer, is there any reason I can't cancel one of my other lines of service, as long as the contract on that line is paid off and I don't care about saving the number associated with that line? Does AT&T have any sort of restrictions around canceling a line? (especially around the time you are adding a line to qualify for an offer?)


As far as I can tell, there are no obligations to maintain a line after the contract on that line is paid off, but I wanted to be sure. We have an "extra" line we aren't using, so if I am able to cancel that one, I can use the new line from the iPhone 8 BOGO offer for my daughter who is getting her first phone.


Thanks in advance for any help!

Re: Restrictions around canceling a line

No problem with opening a new line to get the BOGO and cancelling another line. I know folks who did just that earlier this year to get a free iPhone 7.
