• Porting a Phone Number to AT&T Mobility

    Porting a phone number to AT&T Mobility is the process of moving the number from the current carrier (losing carrier) to AT&T Mobility (winning carrier). This is not the same thing as call forwarding – where an inbound call is simply forwarded to a different number. With porting, the number becomes part of the winning carrier’s network.


    • – Gather current account information for where the new number is right now.
    • – Submit that information to AT&T Mobility.
    • – Reprogram outbound caller ID on your wireless phone handset.
    • – Wait 3 calendar days for the number to start working automatically.
