    Anyone know if a grandfathered AT&T line can be transferred? I've read that it can be done but you have to know someone in AT&T. Is this true?

    What do you mean transfered?
    Why dont you call AT&T and ask them what you need or trying to do to get a 100% answer depending on your situation.

    My question was I wanted to know if it was true that it can be done if you know someone in AT&T.

    Again, as he said, until we know what you mean by "transferred", we can't answer your question.

    Ok someone is interested in one of my unlimited AT&T lines. Do you have to know someone in AT&T that can implement taking over my unlimited line?

    mean like transfering the line to someone else to take over? I heard you lose it when you do the TOL. Just call att and talk to retentions and ask them and if they say yes, proceed.

    He can take over the account. Transfer of liability it's called.
    He has to use the same phone number or change the number after if he wants.
    I'd call them for more details but I heard its possible.

    I had this same problem when my gf transferred her line to my account. We called AT&T and they told us that the request would be sent to management for review. About 3 days later we got an email saying the request was denied.

    Not a good outcome, but hope this helps.

    Nope, a "Transfer of Billing Responsibility" with AT&T will NOT transfer unlumited data. I learned this the hard way a few months ago when I took over a line from someone in the XDA Marketplace. AT&T told me to wait a week and call them back but the request was denied like the person above me. That was probably just to stall for time and get me off their backs, though...I didn't want to make the person who gave me the line to take the ETF so I ended up paying it.

    Right I understand this. I've read that it can be done if you know someone in AT&T. And wanted to know if it was true or not?

    Unless that person is some sort of supervisor/manager that can override these kinds of things, then no.
