Default used 8700c Cingular

Please Login to Remove!

A friend gave me a used 8700c(i think- i looked at the pictures of the 8700c and my phone looks like it). She says it works and all i need is a charger cable and a plan. I do not want to pay for a monthly plan.
Could i get it prepaid? Or a really really cheap plan?
What would i have to do to get it prepaid?
How much would i cost to do that?
How much would each minute cost?
Would it have txt messaging?

Why not do a little research for yourself on the ATT site?

I did and i all i can get is pricing info. They do not say if i could bring a used phone to the store and get a prepaid sim card for it.
That is basically all i want to to know.

I can't see why it wouldn't work for voice only. I know there is no prepaid data services on ATT. Know anyone with a prepaid phone? If so drop their SIM in and see what happens.
