How can I grab my old cell phone number?

I'm losing my cell phone number of 12 years to my employer when I leave the company this week. As policy, they will not allow me to keep it but wondered if anyone can provide some help on how to snag it from AT&T once the company cancels it and it's free to be re-assigned.

A previous user had a question about this
and most suggestions were to work with HR and that won't work for me. The number is currently with AT&T and I intend on keeping it with them so this should not be a problem. The customer rep I talked to today seemed to think that once the number is cancelled, I could call in before the 60 day hold period was up and grab it. Does anyone have experience with this or AT&T's process?
I'm not trying to steal customers...just thought it would prevent me from learning a new number and save the next guy from getting lots of calls he doesn't want.
