Can I use a unlocked router for home internet

If I have an unlocked SIM card router, can I install an att sim card? Also, if that's possible, can I do the same set up for a family member in a separate house?

Let's help you with connecting your unlocked SIM router to our network, @tlaiv.

 

We know how important it is to be able to use your unlocked router to help stay connected. Yes you are able to connect an AT&T SIM card to your SIM router as long as it's an eligible device that works on our network. You will then need to purchase a data plan for your device. Same thing applies when you are setting up for your family member. 

 

Hope this helps! If you have any additional questions, please feel free to reach back out.

I see the list of verified routers for the att network. I specifically have a, Yeacomm 4G LTE CPE. Will this exact router work with y'all's network? Also, would any TP-link or a Cudy AC1200 routers work on the network?

Thank you for the response @tlaiv.

 

We do not have the Yeacomm 4G LTE CPE, TP-link, or Cudy AC1200 router listed on our eligible device list as we mentioned above. You will only be able to use a router that is on the eligible device list

 

Hope this helps!

Thank you for the list of routers that are approved. How often is this list updated? Also, is it possible to request to have a specific device reviewed? Is there a department I can be forward to our put in contact with? I would like to reach a mutually beneficial conclusion that could potentially bring more customers to att other than myself. If at all there is a way other than the standard, sorry not sorry conversations, I would be greatly obliged

Thank you for reaching back out @tlaiv.

 

The list of approved devices was last updated July 6, 2022 and is updated based on the devices that are tested and approved to work on the AT&T Network.

 

Your feedback is important, and we are constantly looking for ways to improve our customers experience. To bring you faster speeds and new features, we're excited to upgrade America’s best network. One change we made was to shut down our 3G network. You can find additional information on our 5G rollout and the standards and specifications for the devices that will work on our Network on our 3G Network Shutdown page. 

 

In the meantime, we're more than happy to submit your feedback for further review for a specific device. Check the message icon in the upper right portion of the page and reply.
