    Switch BYOP sim from TM to ATT?

    I recently activated my first tracfone account using a BYOP TF/TMobile sim. Unfortunately, Tmo seems to have poor coverage where I live. My setup kit was a triple sim kit, so I have an unused TF ATT sim laying around.

    Can I switch my TF account to move over to the TF/ATT SIM (and ATT network)? If yes, what's the process? Is this something I can do automated online, or do I need to call customer service?

    TIA.

    Yes, you can switch to the other SIMs in the kit.

    Yes you can do online. Just go to activate the SIM you want to use and when given the option* choose transfer existing service. That will move number and balances to the new SIM.





    * the options are labeled different than the last time I did it, and you need the new SIM number to get to them so can't give the exact list presented.

    When activating the new (AT&T) SIM online, it'll ask if you want to KEEP YOUR PHONE NUMBER. Reply YES and it'll ask the phone/SIM number of the current T-mo SIM. It's easier if both SIMs are added to your account first. Else, it'll ask some questions to confirm that you're the owner of the T-mobile SIM/phone number.
