IMPORTANT: Transferring existing numbers is defined and regulated by the Federal
Communications Commission (FCC) in United States . We make every effort to transfer your number to AT&T Office@Hand in a timely manner. However, the actual transfer and the time of your transfer depends on the cooperation and release of the telephone number from your current telephone service provider. Business SMS (if available on your service plan) activation could take 72 hours up to 5 additional business days after your number is transferred. Only the phone number may be transferred to AT&T Office@Hand for those bundled with DSL service. Visit the links below to learn more about telephone number transferring.
