You do not need a new phone to use a GoPhone plan. Do you already have an AT&T prepaid SIM card?

Really? How did you manage to do that?

What generation iPhone do you have? I have a locked 3GS. Smiley Very Happy

In other countries, it's been possible to buy factory unlocked iPhones for a long time. In the US, unlocked iPhones have been available since the release of the iPhone 4. I believe you can easily change APN settings on unlocked iPhones so getting those to work on AT&T prepaid should be easier than with AT&T locked iPhones.

If you are buying online, you have to buy a phone. If you go to an AT&T store, you can buy just the SIM card and airtime. Some stores won't even charge you for the SIM if you activate it and buy airtime from them on the spot.
