Setting up old AT&T Go phone with new sim card

I have an old Go phone that I used when I had a wireless account. I no longer have that account, but I would still like to use it with AT&T's Prepaid services. Do I need to buy a sim card and the Prepaid card separate or do they sell them together? Also, can I buy just any AT&T sim card or is there a specific one for Go phones?

Hi @russh93


Thank you for reaching out to us today. We'll be happy to assist you. Prepaid and postpaid SIM do differ; you can order a new prepaid SIM card and a service plan on the prepaid site. If you have any further questions, please let us know.

@Qveenma322 A number is assigned when you activate the SIM card.
