How do I bring my own phone to AT&T from another carrier?

Switching to AT&T BYO is relatively straightforward, as long as you have a compatible phone.

When switching carriers to AT&T, your device needs to be unlocked and it needs to have previously run off the GSM software technology that is compatible with AT&T.

To make sure your device is unlocked and you owe no money on your phone, you will need to contact your current carrier to discuss all details of your current or previous contract.
