ATT Prepaid does not have the same roaming capabilities as Postpaid, but there are a few locations in the US where roaming is available. Check the coverage map or see attached. https://www.att.com/maps/wireless-coverage.html

This is the link to check the port status of a number to AT&T if you're attempting to transfer a number: https://www.att.com/port/lnpEntryWeb.do (slickdeals may mangle the URL, causing the page to fail to load. edit it in your location bar to remove everything after ".do")

Here's the link to activate a prepaid SIM. My attempt to activate stated the SIM was already activated: https://www.att.com/prepaid/activ...ivate.html


Helpful Numbers:
AT&T Prepaid customer service (800) 901-9878
Quote from pichandru
:
Dial (800) 901-9878 and wait for more options and then say CustomerService.
You do need to have a ATT number here.
Activation number: 877-426-0525

This is the process when porting in an existing number (I have done it twice now):

1) Insert new SIM in phone
2) Activate the sim online at att.com/activateprepaid (enter your number you are porting, the SIM ICCID, and your zip code)
3) The activation should succeed, and it will tell you to click a button to Manage your Account. Click it.
4) Manage Account will bring you to www.paygonline.com. You can attempt to log in with your port-in number and PIN (last 4 of your port-in number), but it will likely fail. Now it is time to follow the instructions in the quote below. (If you were able to log on, you can skip to step 6)
5) Finish your port in by calling ATT. Follow these instructions:

Quote from xiaoxiaoniao
:
Just in case you encounter the deadlock of robot chatting when activate your account.
call 877-426-0525
Have you already started to activate your number?
answer: yes
Do you have a phone number?
answer: yes (if porting)
Tell them the number you are porting. You will likely have to do it 3 times, as they won't find it in their system.

[edit 10-05-2019]
I had to answer 'no" to having a number eventhough I was porting because if I answered "yes", then after I gave the robo-assistant my "to port" number it would say that I'd have to call customer service and kick me out. Saying "no" would continue as this guide outlines.
[end of edit 10-05-2019]

Is this for a mobile phone?
answer: yes
Do you have the box the device came in?
answer: yes (assuming you have the sim card with the iccid)
Do you have iccid?
answer:yes
They may say that SIM card is already activated.
Do you already have an account?
answer:yes !!!
Then you will be connected to a real person.
Note: if you make a mistake and say you do not already have an account, they will tell you that you need to go get a new SIM from an AT&T store. That is not true. Call back and go through the process again and make sure to say you have an account. The human will help finish the port and activate your account.
6) The agent should have been able to complete your port in a few minutes. They should be able to send you texts, but you cannot send/receive texts from anyone else yet, because you have to pay the $300 to activate your plan. The agent should be able to text you a temporary PIN that you can use to log into the paygonline.com site.
7) At this point, you just need to add $300 to your account, and your service will be active. You can either a) give the agent your credit card number OR prepaid card PINs, b) log into paygonline.com and provide your credit card or prepaid card PINS, or c) wait for the charge to go through on the credit card you submitted when initially ordering online.
My first time, I tried option c, trying to avoid being double charged - but it never happened. I waited over 12 hours before finally calling in and providing my credit card. I have not been double charged.
My second time, I did option b and entered prepaid card PINs at paygonline.com. As soon as my balance reached $300, my service was active.




Quote from Mr_Skull
:
Some links in case they're of any help.
To activate a prepaid SIM- https://www.att.com/prepaid/activ...ivate.html

Mine said it was activated but I couldn't call 611 for customer service on the device and I couldn't log into the account post activation screen. Had to wait till wife came home with her phone to call support. Credit card only showed a charge for $5 sim at this time.

This is to check the progress of a number being ported to ATT- https://www.att.com/port/lnpEntryWeb.do

Mine now says "completed" but before and during activation it stated "confirmed" I believe. I entered the number to port during original checkout and I checked my old carriers website and it showed the number had been deactivated and service canceled yesterday. ATT Chat told me service / SIM was activated and to wait 45 minutes, power cycle phone, and all should be good. Still couldn't call 611 or any numbers on device an hour later. When I did finally get CSR on wifey's phone I told CSR I had activated the line on the SIM/IMCI with the link above and it was successful, I was porting a number, old carrier showed line was deactivated / disconnected, and then relayed to CSR whatever the "port status" link showed above. She put me on hold, told me the port was still processing but she would push it, hold again, and she returned saying the port was done and I'd need to pay the $300 (plus taxes) to get service activated. Gave her CC info and shortly afterwards did a test call with my phone and verified data was operational.

Ironically I avoided the Target card fiasco because I though it would add an opportunity for error but if I had the cards when she asked for payment I probably could have just read the numbers off.

And as I typed this I received a 2nd notification of payment text and my credit card has two $328 pending charges from AT&T... #facepalm

After 8gb, does it throttle or will ATT automatically charge you extra?

Do you really think it will improve from $30/month/2GB to better than this? I take it no roaming with this prepaid. So you will fully lose signal if you're outside of ATT network instead of hopping on another network and continuing on with your call.

It felt slower than that. I left ATT for T-mobile this year after going over my data allotment and having web pages take like 5 minutes to load if they loaded at all.

Anxious to see "taxes and fees extra" charges. On the $40 plan they come to more than 10%

FYI if you pay 1 year upfront, you can get 8gb from Mint Mobile for $20 a month (240 a year). TMo signal.
