Q:

Will a SIM card from a contract ATT phone work in an ATT Go Phone?

A:

A contracted AT&T SIM card works in an AT&T Go Phone; the SIM cards are programmed to function on the AT&T GSM network. An AT&T customer under contract may purchase a Go Phone to replace a damaged phone and place the SIM card in the device.

An AT&T customer can choose to use the SIM card in a Go Phone through the remainder of the contract. When it is time to renew the contract, the customer can get a new phone through the AT&T Next plan or through a two-year contract.

For a customer choosing a prepaid option through AT&T, Go Phone offers the SIM Card Kit to activate unlocked devices on the AT&T network.

  • Q:

    How do you make a SIM card work in another phone?

    A:

    If a cell phone doesn't have a SIM lock, insert the SIM card into the new phone and it should work so long as the phone supports the carrier's frequency band. Most cell phones have a SIM lock that prevents access to the network if the SIM card belongs to another carrier. If inserting a new SIM card prompts a request for a carrier code, the phone is SIM locked.
