Thanks for using JustAnswer. My name isXXXXX will do whatever I can to provide you with excellent service and answer your questions!

It is but you need to check the phone is not locked to AT&T

If it is, than you need to use the service on this website

http://www.cellunlock.net/

It will unlock the phone. To find out if the phone is locked, called Consumer Cellular and ask for a contract. They will send you a SIM card and with this you get a new number.

Put the SIM card in the phone, and if it complains it is locked, used the Site I provided to unlock it and it will work.

If you require any additional information, please do not hesitate to let me know

And please remember to Rate My Service

thank you
