I am an existing customer and need to know if I can switch to a Nokia 8.3 5G phone. Will it work, can I just swap the SIM card?

AT&T Compatibility List
Thank you. I looked all over the site for this, even called and was told I needed a special phone code, not a model to find out about compatibility. This helps.
It looks like none of the newer Nokia phones are included because even though they currently work with AT&T, our connections will be deactivated in February because Nokia hasn't turned over the code to AT&T to prove the VOLTe code is compliant, despite no usage issues.
Looks like we are forced to find another service provider despite having AT&T accounts since my mother-in-law worked their switchboards during WWII. Sigh.
@KGunvald IT WORKS. I can make calls and use the internet. I have the Nokia 8.3 5G (TA-1243).I called ATT & the rep had no idea. Left me with a dead SIM with no connection. So I figured it out myself.You need an updated SIM card and be sure to enable 5G. See the screen shot below. My service was unreliable until I enabled 5G in the settings. It was off by default.

It seems that the list may not have included the 8.3 at the time of the original post, but it is on the list now. That's why it works.
Does anyone know if wi-fi calling is supported on Nokia 8.3 with ATT?
