    My S3 is dying but I don't want the latest version of smart phone from AT&T because they're super expensive. Am I able to just buy a different android smartphone from ebay or something and switch my SIM card? Or does AT&T have to do something to it in order for it to work?

    Welcome to Android Central.

    As long as you are buying an at&t phone, you should be good to go by just popping in your SIM (as long as the new phone uses the same size SIM). If it uses a different size SIM, you would need to purchase a SIM adapter or cutter, whichever is appropriate.

    If you are buying a non-at&t, unlocked device, make sure it is compatible with the at&t network.
