If it is unlocked, it should.

You will need a BB Data Plan from AT&T.

What didn't you get?

If you have a Cingular SIM card and put it in an UNLOCKED 7290, it should allow voice and SMS text only. If it says Invalid SIM Card then the BB is locked. If it says Data Connection Refused, then voice and SMS will work. But no Internet or e-mail until you have a BlackBerry Data Plan added.

You need some sort of Internet or T-Zones or MediaNet plan in any event.
