    I have an iPhone 4 that i use on At&T gophone. It seemed like the easiest solution as i brought my iphone from UK to the US and didn't want to pay for a contract when i didn't need a subsidized phone.

    Ive now ordered an iPhone 5 with a new number, i thought trying to transfer a gophone number would just create difficulties during the preorder phase and therefore I decided to take a new number. My telephone number is quite a nice one, therefore when I get my iPhone 5 can i easily transfer my number over?

    Whats the easiest way of doing this?
    - online
    - call at&t
    - at&t store?

    Thanks for the link Dave, says my number isn't eligible. I'll wait for the dust to settle after iphone 5 launch then pop into a store and see what they can do. A few people have suggested on various websites is to port your number to another carrier (prepaid) then port it back to at&t.

    If the new number isn't too bad, then maybe i'll just keep it.
