Thanks

If it has HSPA bands 850 and 1900 it will do fine for talk and text.

Re: My cell phone only supports 3G - will it work?

Thank you for your reply. I was not specific enough. This phone is Samsung galaxy s3 and it has HSPA+ 850/900/1900/2100MHz but I am interested specifically in GPRS - it supports the following ranges for GPRS: 850/900/1800/1900. Will I be able to use the data plan?
Thanks
Joanna

HSPA or HSPDA, or HSPA+ is 3G/4G.  You would get talk text and data at 3/4G speed 

GPRS is 2G, and ATT has no 2G network.
