Please call AT&T so they can process an order for a simcard. Please let them know that you only wanted a simcard.

Waiting on hold might take longer than usual due to number of calls in queue. Please wait patiently.

That's impossible. Anyone who take phone calls for AT&T wireless service will be able to process an order for a new sim.

You mentioned that you already have an account, so technically you already have a plan... why need for another plan? Unless your account is a cancelled account and that you have no existing active postpaid account, you really can't a simcard.

there is no need for another plan,as I have 2 now,the sim will be an extra in case of stolen or lost phone,as it is under the current climate,it will take me 2 to 3 weeks to procure a new sim,a sim in hand is better then no phone,,,

You can call 611 from your phone. But if you want to make it simple and easy and not have to deal with AT&T is idiotic phone tree, don't order from AT&T
You can purchase an AT&T 3 in 1 SIM card online and have it shipped to you from Best Buy, eBay, Amazon, and probably Walmart, Target.

Hello. I see that I can buy a Prepaid sim card in Best Buy and other stores. Will it work on postpaid accounts?

No. A prepaid sim will only work on prepaid. If you need a replacement sim for a postpaid line, go to an ATT store.

At&t will not ship out of USA, and I don't know whether you can even activate an AT&T SIM card in Canada even though your plan May provide service in Canada.
You can order a SIM card from eBay or Amazon. It does have to be the correct SIM card for your plan. There is no guarantee you're going to be able to activate it because you are not connected to the AT&T network when you are out of the USA.
