ATT carrier locked iPhone 14 work with a prepaid ATT plan? Only has E-sim though..!

I have an iPhone 14 that’s carrier locked to ATT and wondering if I could use ATT prepaid service on that phone. It also has no physical sim so I’m not sure how that would work

If it locked to AT&T, it will work fine with prepaid, same as postpaid.  You just need a prepaid eSIM.

@lakyn90 It probably depends on whether the phone has been paid off, if purchased with installments.  ATT's current policy is that phones on installments can only be used on the account it is financed on.

If paid off, and be used on other ATT accounts.  But if paid off can also be unlocked.

@kevink  is correct.  If it was purchased after October 2022, it is restricted to the account it was purchased on.
