Hello,

I have at&t pre-paid go phone. Pick Your Plan.

The phones online are likely for New PYP Service. If you order online you will have to get a new activation but just put you old SIM card in the phone. If you take it to a store it's unlikely they will honor it.

I work in a retail store.. usually we can match most online prices but it is only on contract. We are not allowed to match Prepaid prices. We are only allowed to match a price if it is a upgrade or activation.

Check the pay as you go price for that phone it will likely be the same and your credit card won't be billed you will have to wait 2 days but its usually worth it
