I want to switch to prepaid at&t, but I already have an unlocked cell phone, that is, I only need the chip, where can I get it? I need to go to the store or can I buy it online and activate it myself

Hello @Rouse1, we're happy to help with options to purchase a SIM and activate your Prepaid account.
It’s easy to transfer your current phone number when you switch. Enter your 10-digit phone number to see if it can be transferred when you Switch to AT&T.
You can get SIM card kits at one of our stores, online through att.com, or from another online retailer. The kits come with three SIM card sizes. You can use it if you want to bring your own device to AT&T, or if you just need a new physical SIM.
Check your device or SIM card activation instructions for more details with the steps below.
Once you have your SIM card you can activate your device in our Prepaid Activation Portal by entering the SIM card number, IMEI and device details. We're here if you have any questions. Thank you for contacting AT&T Community Forums.
