Not enough information. 

Moving a Sim card is all it should take. 

If you are using an AT&T phone SIM card, and wish to switch to a new phone, you must have an unlocked and compatible device.  

   Is your service for a phone? 

    Is the phone you wish to use unlocked or unlocked from previous carrier? 

   What LG device are you trying to use?  


🐾 I don’t work for AT&T or any carrier. Never have, never will. My replies are based on experience and reading content available on the website. If you posted personal information, please edit and remove.

Hello, @jovancharles84,


Thank you for reaching out. @lizdance40 is correct. The SIM card should be able to be moved to your Android.If it's the wrong size, you'll need to go into an AT&T Store to get a new SIM card.


If the Android wasn't previously with AT&T, you'll need to have the device unlocked from the previous carrier before you can use an AT&T SIM card in it.


Have a great week.
