How do I keep my old phone number when switching phones

I've been using an old LG Escape2 for years. It's finally time to switch to a newer phone. I want to get a slightly used Google Pixel 6. The one I'm looking at is locked. When I get the Pixel, how do I unlock it? And, secondly, how do I keep the same phone number as before? Thanks

That depends on what carrier it is locked to. If locked to ATT, you don’t need to unlock it to use on ATT.

And, secondly, how do I keep the same phone number as before?

Move the SIM card from your old phone to the new phone.
