Can I buy a SIM card but not add a line of service immediately?

Hello,

 

I am in a weird situation where I would like to purchase a AT&T SIM card right now, but since I'll be overseas for a couple of months, I do not want to add a line of service (or more to the point, pay the monthly charges) until I return. Is this possible?

 

Thanks in advance!

Yes. They are actually for sale on this website if you didn't already know. Of course, there are the stores/eBay, also.

Thanks for the reply! However, when purchasing online at least, they ask you to choose a rate plan immediately. My question is whether it is possible to delay doing so?

That I am not for sure on. I suppose you could add the plan anyway, but just not use the SIM in the phone until you need to. Now, the SIM may be activated and have a phone number already assigned to it when it is delivered.
