Good day everyone!

Has anyone done this? I have AT&T and want to keep all my voice/data plans, etc. the same, just change my number. I haven't talked to my local AT&T guy yet, just wanted to hear others' experiences first so I know what to expect and what questions to think of asking.

Thank you!

I think you can, dial 611 and keep pressing 0 till you get a live person. I believe you just need to go to an AT%T store and get a SIM card

Oh, I know I can ask AT&T directly. I was just curious to hear people's experiences who have already done it.

In the states you don't have to buy a new SIM card to do this; AT&T will do it for you over the phone. So that's interesting.

I have done this, but not on my primary phone. I have a separate AT&T phone with a VI 340 number on it. I tried using the number on my primary cell phone, but I had caller ID issues where all incoming calls would not show my caller ID. I got the issue escalated to AT&T's level 3 support and the eventual reason that they came back with was that the trunks in the VI would not properly support all of the caller ID options.... So I had this number switched over to an additional phone. For me to get a 340 number it was not too difficult, but I was a new AT&T customer and when I bought the phone and signed up for the plan I told them that I wanted a 340 number. As the guy was setting up my account in NC you could tell he was scratching his head a little bit as he was setting it up. Let me know if you have any additional questions as I would be glad to help.

Thanks,
Brandon
