Locked AT&T Android for prepaid?

I was given a locked Galaxy S-21 that is locked.  The phone is more than likely not paid for or I don't think this person would have given it to me. Lol

My question is:  can I use a at&t prepaid SIM in it?  8 don't want to buy a SIM and then it not work because it's on some list or something.

It depends on whether or not it's paid off. I would recommend submitting an unlock request as a non-customer. If it indicates it's not paid off you will not be able to activate it on any AT&T or Cricket plan
