Can i get a refund?

I bought the 65$ max pre paid plan to use with an existing phone I already have.  My phone is listed under phones that are compatible with the at&t service.  I activated the sim card online and choose the plan I wanted and paid for the month of service, turns out my phone will not work with at&t so I've paid for service I cannot use.  Can I be refunded for it?

The prepaid bring your own phone website recommends that you check your IMEI, did you?

Hi alldayvikings28, we are here to shed a light on our refund policy and look into your device compatibility with our AT&T Prepaid service!


Thank you to our ACEs for stepping in to help. 


What Fl_retire stated is true, we are unable to refund Prepaid service as per our terms & conditions. We do want to check if your device will work on our network, to do so we'll need your device make & model.


Also, let us know if your device is unlocked or if its AT&T carrier locked. Here is the list of unlocked devices that will work on our network and the AT&T devices that are compatible to our network. 


Let us know if this helps! Thank you for reaching out to the AT&T Community Forums!
