GoPhone SIM card kits
Can a person just get a GoPhone SIM card for either the 25 monthly plan or the other prepaid smartphone plans available from AT&T? If so, where can these be purchased? This would be paired with an unlocked GSM phone purchased elsewhere.

Thanks.
Probably from mobile, maybe. Smiley Happy

You can do that at any corporate AT&T store. It'll likely be free if you sign up for a plan and/or put some credit on it.

Alternatively you can buy a SIM at Walmart.

dmapr is correct. Most people choose to do the in-store route. In the past, however, I have purchased several SIM cards from eBay and Amazon for fewer than $3-4 and activated them myself. I didn't mind activating them at all - the process was fairly simple and I knew what was going on the whole time. Smiley Happy

You can go to any corporate AT&T store,sign up and get the SIM card for free.

Or you can go to CVS,Walgreens etc etc to pick up a SIM card Kit for US$9.99 + tax and DIY.

By the way, I had replace/renew my SIM card a few time @ corporate AT&T store a few times last year for free.

This isn't exactly true, using the store locator and the terms mentioned there:

http://www.att.com/maps/store-locator.html

 

Be aware that if you go to an AT&T store that is an AT&T Authorized Retailer you will have to pay for the GoPhone SIM there. 

 

If you go to an actual AT&T Company Store then the SIM you will get for free when signing up for GoPhone. 

 

I wish I knew the difference when I signed up, would have gotten better service and a free SIM. There might be some exceptions but in general this is the difference between the two stores that both have the giant AT&T logo outside and seem like they might be the same thing when you see them from the street.

Hi Max,

  Sometime you better make a phone call to ask them before you walk in.
 I still remember having some bad experience at some AT&T Authorized Retailer  !!!

Thanks all for your replies. I think I will probably get the SIM kit from Walmart since the AT&T store are some distance from where I live.
