Simcard out of USA

I have an american bank account and I live in Europe; to receive SMS bank verification code I need an american mobile number.

How can activate an AT&T simcard out of USA?

You can activate a prepaid SIM card online but it won’t do you any good. Prepaid service does not roam internationally except Canada and Mexico. Prepaid service won’t work in Europe.

International roaming is not available in prepaid or "pay as you go" plans?

If I buy a simcard in USA and activate in USA can it works?

“International roaming is not available in prepaid or "pay as you go" plans?” Correct, it is not available.

“If I buy a simcard in USA and activate in USA can it works?” It will work in the USA, yes, but not in Europe.
