Can I add an unlocked iphone to my AT&T plan?

My brother is giving me his old iphone 5 (unlocked). Can I add to my plan?

Yes.  You can swap your SIM card into the phone if it's the same size, or take it to ATT and get a SIM card that fits.

Just an added comment.. maybe even a question..

My understanding is, you can bring an unlocked phone to the party, but , ATT will in fact lock it as part of activation.

Am i right on that?
