I’ve had the same phone number for probably 20 years now with T-Mobile. When I got married I joined a family plan with my (soon-to-be-ex) husband. That day we were in the store I had a baby in my arms so he signed us up for a new plan using his SS#. As of that day (about 5 years ago), as I’ve come to learn the hard way, he became the owner of MY phone number, which I owned for 10 years before ever knowing him. The phone number is tied to everything I have -- every account, my work and all of my business contacts… EVERYTHING. It’s the only cell phone number I have ever had. And now out of spite, he is not agreeing to release the line for me to take it to another T-Mobile account. No one told me that day we signed up for the family plan that this transfer of ownership was occurring. I am at a loss because T-Mobile reps have told me there is nothing I can do without his permission. Has anyone had any success with a situation like this? Anything a lawyer could help with? Anyone on the T-Mobile executive team I could write to for help? Appreciate any helpful advice...
