Since February of 2015, The only option of using equipment with ATT is rental.. they do not sell it any more, only rent, and the connection software is propietary, so, even if you but the same idential equipment, it will not work, as it has to be activated by ATT, and they will only activate equipment you aquired directly from them.

In short, the answer is no, renting is your only option.
