Separating phones and account

On the next contract .. My husband and I are on the same account and bill .  I would like to take my phone and have my own account separate from his. My phone, my account.. His phone, his account. Im tired of him always suspending my service every time he gets moody... How do I go about doing that.

Re: Separating phones and account

You have to do a transfer of billing responsibility which has to at least appear to be authorized by the account owner.  It requires all the account information, PIn code.  

Alternately go buy a prepaid phone and service and walk away from your current number.

To move your number to prepaid, go to an ATT store for a new SIM card and they will change you over.
