How Do I Add Other People to My At&t Wireless Account?

Adding additional wireless users to your AT&T account is a fairly simple process. However, the steps change depending on what you're trying to do. If you are adding a user from a different carrier and they would like to keep their number, there will be a porting process. The porting process will allow the person to keep their number but will probably require them to purchase an AT&T compatible phone. However, if you are simply adding additional users that already have an AT&T account it's fairly straightforward. You are simply adding authorized users. Both processes can be accomplished online are with the help of customer service. However, there are usually charges and fees associated with adding additional users to your account. However, these fees will be dependent on your plan.

As an AT&T customer, you may want to add additional people to your account. This is not a difficult process. It just requires following a few simple steps. There may be a cost involved, however, that will be determined by your plan. However, the cost usually ranges from fifteen to twenty-five dollars to add additional people to your account.

Add a Person to Your Account

Start by accessing your myAT&T account and navigating to the select user's option. Select your account from the dropdown menu. If you have more than one account, you will need to select the account you want to add a person to and choose the option to add an authorized user. You can also add additional users by calling customer service if you dont want to complete this process online. You have the option to add up to ten people. You can also designate people as secondary or primary users.

Link an Existing Account

You can link another account to your AT&T account by logging into your account and selecting the option to add an existing account to your account. Use your billing zip code and account number to complete this process. If you want to add a phone that you already have you will need to buy an AT&T sim card for it.

Other Requirements

You will be charged a twenty-dollar connection fee for each additional line. You will also be charged for the data package you select. There will also be device access fees and taxes. However, you can reduce some of the cost by signing up for autopay.


You may also have the option to add someone to your AT&T wireless account who has existing service with a different carrier. This process is called porting. This is done so that the person who is changing carriers can keep their existing phone number. However, keep in mind that you can port your number but you will likely be required to use a phone that's AT&T compatible. This means that you probably will not be able to use your existing phone.
