AT&T GoPhone Sim Card Activation

Hi,

  I bought a Nokia Lumia 520 gophone. The phone has been unlocked by at&t but I was using another at&t sim.. Now I want to acivate the sim that cam with the gophone.. I dont have the mobile number as I have not activated it even once. I have the SIM Card number and the IMEI Number,

Is it possible to activate the sim card? I am not able to reach AT&T Gophone customer care as in the menu the first option itself asks for the mobile number which I do no have.

 

Thanks

If you visit https://www.att.com/help/gophone.html it will allow you to go through an online activation process for a gophone that doesn't have a number assigned to it yet.

 

You can also call 877-426-0525 to activate the device over the phone. 🙂

Certainly. Use this link to activate your SIM card: https://www.wireless.att.com/GoPhoneWeb/goPhoneLanding.do?method=activatePayGo

I have personally activated 3-4 accounts using this online activation process and it has worked flawlessly every time.

@GoldenEaring If I recall correctly, users in the past have ran into this same issue. I believe the fix was to enter all zeros (5 of them in a row, looking like '00000'). I'm fairly certain the system will accept those zeros as a valid area code. If it does not, unfortunately, I am not sure. Have you tried entering a US zip code and seeing what happens?
