So I bought a Iphone 5c on ebay, but it dosen't have a sim card. Where do I get one. We have a family plan with at&t. Do they give me a free sim card? Does it have to be a certain kind of sim card?

Is this 5C replacing another phone you have now or is it a new phone to add to your account?

AT&T will supply you with a SIM card so you can get it activated on your account.

If it is replacing an AT&T phone on your account you might be able to pull the SIM card out of your old phone and put in the 5C if it will fit. They are all Micro-SIM cards now.

It is all in the cost of the plan that you will be adding to run this new phone. AT&T wants your phone to be on one of it's plans before you can use it. They might also be an activation charge.

Sorry but this is the way all the carriers do this.
