Someone just ripped you off then. You don't buy a sim card. They're free. They come with the service. If you setup service . . . anywhere, store, website, over the phone, if you have a phone already, AT&T gives you a sim card.

 

If you are looking for prepaid, than maybe you might have loaded money on a prepaid account/line?

If you are interested in activating a prepaid SIM card for a new GoPhone account, go to this link: https://www.wireless.att.com/GoPhoneWeb/goPhoneLanding.do?method=activatePayGo

If you are looking at activating your SIM to use with a contract/postpaid service, stop by your local AT&T corporate store.

If you want to transfer your number from another carrier, you might want to do it in the store, this way, it will no cause any error in the process of transferring the number.

Why would you want to activate an AT&T SIM card without becoming a customer?  The SIM card is what ties your device to your AT&T Account, so if you have no AT&T Account, you can't activate a SIM.  This is the point people are trying to tell you.  AT&T will give you a free SIM with your account, and without an account, you can not activate a SIM.

 

What are you trying to accomplish with the AT&T SIM card you purchased?  Are you trying to put it into a phone that is locked to AT&T so you can use that phone with another carrier?  Is ther somethign else you are trying to do?

I think what he means is that he is currently not an AT&T customer but is interested in becoming one as soon as his SIM is activated. He would like to start a new account with a new AT&T phone number.

Like I mentioned above, you can activate your new SIM card online by going to this link:

https://www.wireless.att.com/GoPhoneWeb/goPhoneLanding.do?method=activatePayGo

 

Enter the digits on your SIM card, click 'Continue', then complete the rest of the activation process. It's very simple. You will have a new account with a new phone number at the end of the procedure.
