Move SIM from locked ATT iPhone 12 to unlocked iPhone 14?

Can I simply take the SIM card from my locked ATT iPhone 12 and put it in the unlocked iPhone 14 without dealing with customer support?  Can I then go overseas and replace that SIM with an international SIM since I am now using an unlocked iPhone?

The iPhone 14 only takes an esim. You can convert the sim in the 12 to an esim on the 14. No need to involve customer support, you can do it yourself. Also, no need to replace the sim when overseas. You can add an international esim since the iPhone 14 is dual sim.

Between the AT&T and the Apple link that should be sufficient information for you to transfer service from your iPhone 12 to the iPhone 14.

You will of course still have to pay off the iPhone 12 but you are not required to do that immediately. You can continue to pay installments if you choose

Thank you!  After researching a bit more I discovered that esim is the only option on iPhone 14.  Hopefully, the conversion is straightforward.

Thank you, so much, for the links!  Yes, I already paid off the 12.
