pay as you go/gophone question

I have an unlocked Nokia c1-02 and I was looking into prepaid plans. The obvious choice is to buy a sim card and that led me to looking at sim cards on Amazon, which at between $2-$6 seem like a bargain.

 

I've searched Google and have checked the ATT wireless website without luck. Perhaps someone on here has experience with this?

 

My question is: If I purchase a regular ATT 3G  sim card can I use it for a gophone/prepaid account? Or do I have to purchase a gophone sim card? Or does it not make a difference what the card says but what you choose when setting up the sim card/account?

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated

This. I've bought a couple of regular AT&T SIM cards from ebay for my unlocked phones and had no trouble activating them with GoPhone service.

Very interesting! So I guess GoPhone "labeled" SIM cards aren't necessarily needed after all.

Awesome. I went with eBay and got it for cheaper than Amazon.

 

Thanks!
