Yes, your phone will work fine on prepaid, it does not need to be unlocked. It will work fine unless your ex reports it lost or stolen and gets it blacklisted. To move your number to prepaid, that can only be done in an ATT corporate store. You will need the account number and account pin to do that. You can, of course, get a new prepaid number too.
