Can I buy a prepaid phone from best buy and then put it on our family ATT plan?

Technician's Assistant: What's the brand/model of your phone?

It will be an IPHONE 6

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on with your phone? What have you tried so far?

You can buy it from Best Buy but it will need to go onto a Prepaid plan through AT&T.

Every Best Buy has their own phone expert that can set it up through any carrier so you can ask them more specific details
