Where to Buy an AT&T Phone With No Plan


There may be times when you need to have an AT&T phone and don't need a plan, such as when you want a specific phone only offered by AT&T or when you are replacing an old phone that is still within your phone contract. Having a monthly phone plan can be expensive. It is possible to buy an AT&T phone without a plan, and this may be the right choice for you depending on your digital needs.

AT&T retail stores

  • While there are special incentives for people buying their phones under one or two-year contracts, you are not required to buy an AT&T phone with a monthly plan. AT&T may offer phones that you can use without the need to commit yourself to a two-year service plan. These phones may be older models, since the newer models are tied with a contract.

Other stores

  • You can buy an AT&T phone at a grocery store or retail store without a plan. These phones are prepaid Go Phones that require you to buy pay-as-you-go minutes. You are then responsible for topping off your minutes to avoid the cancellation of your prepaid service. Phones under the Go Phone name are still registered with AT&T, as evident in the logo on the phone.

Online stores

  • It is possible to buy an AT&T phone without a plan through online retailers. Online retailers such as Bizrate.com or eBay.com may carry AT&T phones. These phones may initially be registered to AT&T or unlocked to become more compatible with other service providers. Depending on the seller, these phones may be older models that are cheap, or newer models that are expensive because they are not under a plan.
