Owe money to AT&T from years back can I use go phone service now?

I was dumb and switched to Verizon years ago. I never could afford to pay the ETF and it is now in collections. Will this make it where I can not use att's go phone service now. I need to know ASAP. I have a phone and want to switch tomorrow. Also can I get a sim kit in a att store?

1) No, your previous account will have NO affect on getting a go phone.

 

2) Yes, any AT&T store should be able to help you.

I too owe ATT money, cause Verizon is absolutely killing me! Whenever I think, I'm in the clear they slap another $200 on my bill! I truly gotta go! I don't really want a go phone, I want the 2 year contract. I know it sounds crazy, but that's what I want. Can ATT help me with that?

@mnstewart74 There are no 2 year contracts anymore but if you want a postpaid plan, chances are your past history with ATT will surface. Whether that results in requiring a deposit or paying off the debt or both, I don't know.
