Best way to cancel one account and open new account while also keeping numbers from 1st account.
I would like to participate in new customer offers that I am unable to as a long-time, loyal AT&T customer (~25 years). I think the only way to get the discounts on offer is to close my current account and open a new one. (I am not under contract) (the alternative is to switch to another carrier, which is always an option)
Customer service said my plan would be acceptable but I am unsure about how to go about it, while also porting my original phone numbers to the new phones.
I would appreciate any advice or tips please. TIA.
Here is my plan:
open new account with 4 new phones & take advantage of the discounts for new customers.
transfer my old numbers to the new phones on the new account. (What happens after there is no number associated with the old phones??? Do they get assigned new numbers???)
cancel old account
I'm hoping there are some ATT empolyees that would offer some tips or some customers that have been through this before.
