    Yes, it will work. You can buy gophone sim from Bestbuy it will work too just DO NOT put in any go phone else the Sim is no good.

    I bought two Sim cards on eBay. One was good, but the other was bad. I tried to activate the bad one on AT&T's website (Go Phone Activate) and found the card to be bad. I call customer service, same result. I hadn't received the second card, so for sh**s and grins, I tried to activate an old Sim card I had laying around. To my suprise, it converted and activated to a Go Phone Sim. It now works fine in my iPhone 4 (I had to trim it to a micro).

    My iPhone 4 is on BB4.11.08. It works fine. Because this is currently unlockable, I am using AT&T Go Phone. Previously on my 3G, I was using T-Mobile. To buy a Sim card, just look on eBay. Anyone will do. I have be told that you can just walk into a AT&T store and get one free. You just need to pay the first's month.

    I would try calling them to see if they might mail you one

    To get straight to a representative go to gethuman.con it's free and select Call Me Instead or just call 888-387-6270

    An unused, no service ATNT sim will do the trick.
