What do you have to do to transfer ownership on an unlimited data account?
Basically call att and tell them you want to transfer the account into another name. You give att the buyers phone number, att calls them to confirm they are taking over the account. Att does run a credit check.
Do you loose your phone number tied to the original account? I am thinking of selling mine, but did not know how to go about it. I can't give up my number I have had for 20+ years
No way to do it without losing the number...
Just how much do you think the Unlimited account is worth?
Google "AT&T assumption of liability." That'll get you what you need to know.
Yes, you lose your number.
They can still go for $500-$800.
I just looked on eBay and saw prices well above 1K and as high as over $3800
That is crazy. Still not worth giving up a number I have had for over 10 years. I am surprised that AT&T would do this.
It's called a ToL not aol but close enough
change your number on facebook, linkedin, text it to your contacts and family, etc. i've changed phone numbers in the landline days a few times. no big deal
what you can try to do is open a new line under your account and change that phone number to the new line. use an older phone for netflix or youtube or whatever for that month. port the line with the number to another carrier leaving your UDP with another number on AT&T. sell that account.
might work, might not
Ah, VZW is "assumption of liability" while ATT is "transfer of liability."
I agree, in the grand scheme and long run it may not be as profitable.
Why couldn't you do the google voice port out trick like you can with Verizon and keep your number that way?
