switch/upgrade from residenial to small biz
I am starting up my own biz at home and want to switch from residential service to small biz. I currently have a static IP address and port 25 is opened to me. I realize i'd have to get a different static IP address because att will probably put me on a different subnet. I talked to someone on the phone at att business and was told i can not keep the same phone number i've had for 23 years when switching from residential to small business. I'm not about to give up my phone number as i've had it as a landline then VoIP when i switched to u-verse. i can keep the same mobile number when switching mobile companies so how is it possible i can't keep the same number when just switching services with the same company?
