Installment plan locked device, can I add esim?

Hello, my device is currently under the installment plan with At&t and it has not been paid fully yet. I am planning to travel to another country and would like to get an esim for that. Am I'm able to add that esim into the device and use it?

Not on locked phone.

Until your phone is paid off it is both carrier locked and account restricted on both SIM cards. 

You would have to pay off the phone and unlock it to use a foreign SIM. 

If you are getting bill credits for a trade-in deal, or early upgrade deal, you can still pay off and unlock the phone and bill credits will continue 

Bill credits would only be void on a "no trade in required" deal
