Forum Question: Lost iPhone Replaced With Refurbrished Apple iPhone

1. Does Apple transfer over the Apple Protection Plan to my new refurbrished iPhone which replaced my old, lost iPhone?

2. Does AT&T give me back my former cel phone number?

    That’s a good question about the protection plan. My guess would be yes, but I can’t be sure. Why not call them and ask?
    You should definitely be able to get your same number. For a long time now we get to keep our numbers when we get a new phone.
    If you are doing this by going to the Apple Store or AT&T store, then they should be able to answer your first question and take care of setting up your new phone with the same number. If you are ordering online, then it is a matter of swapping out the SIM card. The AT&T system should just recognize your new phone and you should be set. I’ve done that many times. If you get stuck, just call AT&T or stop by one of their stores.

    My wife will be receiving her refurbished iPhone today so I will be calling Apple and asking them about her protection plan. I will post Apple’s answer so everyone one this forum will know. Tom

    Apple does renew your protection plan if you purchased another refurbished iphone to replace your lost phone. Just call Apple’s iPhone Department.
