AT&T Prepaid Service and Unlocked Phones

I've been using an LG Phoenix 3 for over a year now, and I'm looking at a phone upgrade. I'm looking at getting one of the phones below, but not sure if it will be compatible on the prepaid network

 

Moto G6

Nokia 6.1

If someone can validate whether or not I can purchase an unlocked phone and not an AT&T branded prepaid phone to use with the prepaid network. Any help would be appreciated!

You absolutely can.  I was at Best Buy yesterday being a tourist.  The have a nice bunch of unlocked compatible phones.  All will work for talk text and data on AT&T.  You will not get Wifi calling or advanced calling and text features.  

You might want to check BB first as they have a sale on many of these phones now.  BB will also price match on the same model.
