Keep number between carriers?

I am thinking of going from AT&T to Consumer Cellular. I will be keeping my current cell phone number. If, for whatever reason, I want to go back to AT&T, will I be able to reinstate the same number? I would think yes, because I would have kept the number the whole time, but I thought I would put a question out to make sure. Thanks.

Unless AT&T or Consumer Cellular has a problem with it (double check to be sure), then yes, you should be able to. I switched from Verizon to Straight Talk and back to Verizon and had the same number as I started with.

What made you go back to Verizon?

Communication problems mostly. Straight Talk reps are located somewhere "south of the border" (Guatemala from what I've been told). When I tried to contact them to change a credit-card number they couldn't understand that I couldn't recieve texts and talk on my original Motorola Droid phone (to verify the card change) at the same time, I got so frustrated I kicked them out right then and there. I had been off-contract from Verizon for some time and found they had a no-contract plan for just $5 more than Straight Talk. Data was only 1GB, but data isn't really that important to me (since I have Wi-Fi at work and home), and using a cell-phone at home is out of the question with any carrier....

If you don't need data, have a look at Republic Wireless. They use the Sprint network. I pay under $14/month.

Sprint is nonexistent (signal-wise) in this neck of the woods. And I'm content with what I have now.

Thanks for your responses. I'm thinking I may stay with AT&T for now with a different plan than the one I currently have. There's so many plans to choose from that it could take some time to investigate all of them and the carrier's offering them. At least the plan I'm considering is cheaper than the one I currently have.
