Switch not Transfer to new prepaid phone of AT&T.

I have a newer phone and want to switch over to it. Its an AT&T phone. I'm an existing AT&T (go-phone) prepaid customer. It has everything it needs, my old phone has a shattering screen.

All i want to do is switch my AT&T phone number/service into it.

Can I use the steps above or what do i need to do?

before my next due payment on February 10th.?.?.?. I'll prefer to switch over to the newer phone ASAP (like this week)

Steps above? What steps? All you need to do is move the SIM card from old phone to new phone.

I have yet to see a new phone that didn’t come with a paper quick start guide, or when turned on prompts the user to install a SIM card.
