As long as you purchase a phone that has the word Unlocked in the product title, then it will work. The unlocked phone "Samsung Galaxy S5 Active G870A 16GB AT&T Unlocked GSM 4G LTE Quad-Core Phone w/ 16MP Camera - Camo Green (Certified Refurbished)" at the website I've provided above will work with AT&T, and Tracfone and with all other carriers.

Or is it another phone you are looking at?
