I may try something like that after a bit when I am ready to give it up if it doesn't work. Actually, I have an extra ATT phone that I can add back on my plan for a month without contract. I'm thinking that there may be an activation fee plus their porting fee, but I might try it. Thanks for your suggestions.trim81 wrote:To each his own- but for me, a 20+ year number is hard to pass on.
Heres what you should do... (what I would do)
Go to walmart. Buy yourself an ATT Go Phone (prepaid) or T-Mobile prepaid phone... it only costs like $10-$15
Go home, call ATT or T-Mobile and port the number over.
After that, initiate the port with Ooma.

This is my humble opinion however.
Prepaid is only $10-$15 straight up and requires no activation charges.
Oh also, Porting with cell carriers is always free. never any cost to port from cell carriers.
Go pre paid.
