I talked with AT&T tech support and if you have a plan and are just replacing the phone, it will work. You have to activate it first and then switch the sim card. And there is no activation fee because you are just replacing the phone.

This is a go phone so it uses a pre paid plan. If you have a pre pay plan already this would be a replacement.

I was able to answer my own question. I called Consumer cellular, the cell carrier I was transferring to and they said Yes, They would even do the transfer for me. So I purchased this basic flip phone and ordered a SIMM card from consumer cellular and the phone number transferred with no problem.

If both numbers have the same area code - then probably, but AT&T would give the best answer.
