Okay - here's the situation. I am getting a new phone through work (iPhone 4S!) and I want to dump my girlfriend's line and move her to mine. The reasoning is I don't want to lose my rollover minutes and I'm grandfathered in to unlimited data with my current AT&T plan. I want to move her to my line but she wants to keep her phone number. Does anyone know what I have to do with AT&T to accomplish this - or if I even can? She'll take my old number if she has to but she'd like to avoid it if we can. Anyone have any experience with this? Any thoughts or suggestions? Thanks in advance.

If your both on AT&T you should be able to move her number and account over to yours. They will make you go through an " assumption of liability" process which basically allows her out of her contract and makes you responsible for her payments. This process should not effect any grandfather benefits you have.
