How to Get a Free Phone From AT&T Without a Contract


Free cell phones usually come with a hitch -- a lengthy contract with a cell phone provider. AT&T offers a noncontractual-binding phone, called the GoPhone. Every available AT&T feature -- such as texting, picture messaging and Internet access -- is offered on these devices. GoPhones also come in every major brand and model available on the market. AT&T occasionally offers free GoPhones during special promotions. Get a free phone from the comfort of your own home, with none of the stipulations that come with a contract.

Things You'll Need

  • Computer with Internet access
  • Credit card
  • Navigate to AT&T's online store using your computer's Internet browser (see Resources).

  • Navigate to "Service Type" and select "GoPhone Prepaid."

  • Click on "Show Only," then select "Free Phones."

  • Review the phones on your screen and find any that are free. Sometimes AT&T requires you to purchase the phone, then sends you a rebate for the full amount paid for the device.

  • Click on the phone you would like to purchase.

  • Enter all of your personal information into the forms when prompted, including your name, address and other contact information.

  • Select how many minutes you would like to purchase for your phone upfront. AT&T requires you to prepay for minutes on all GoPhones. You are also able to add minutes as often as you like.

  • Enter your credit card information and click "Submit." Wait three to five days for your phone to be delivered to your specified address.

Tips & Warnings

  • You may also go to an AT&T retail store to get a GoPhone.
  • Free phones are not always available in-store or online.
  • If no free GoPhones are available, there are affordable phone options available often under $10.
