How To Get an AT&T Burner Phone

Protecting privacy is getting more difficult nowadays. Many websites require your email, and a variety of them ask for your private number as well. You are probably one of many Americans that don’t feel safe about sharing this kind of information online. Fortunately, you don’t have to—burner phones and fake phone number apps can protect your privacy.

DoNotPay has one of the most inexpensive and easy-to-use features for generating temporary phone numbers. Use our app to protect your privacy and avoid spam text messages.

Why Do People Use Burner Phones?

Americans are using burner phones and fake numbers more and more because around 80% of them are worried about their privacy. It is a common misconception that only criminals use burner phones. With the development of technology, anyone can have a burner phone now.

The main reasons someone would want to buy a burner phone are to:

  • Keep their private information safe
  • Use it for dating apps
  • Buy and sell products online
  • Apply for jobs
  • Keep business separate from private life
  • Lower the cost of roaming if traveling

Does AT&T Sell Burner Phones?

Despite their benefits, burner phones are somewhat old fashioned and have limited features. AT&T sells burner phones, but they don’t refer to them as such—AT&T offers prepaid phones.

When you opt for a prepaid sim card, you can avoid signing a contract and leaving your personal information to the company. AT&T is more focused on its postpaid phone selection, so the prepaid phone offer is not as diverse.

The company has a “bring your own phone” option, which will make this purchase more affordable. Buying burner phones is more expensive than you’d think.

With AT&T prepaid phone plans, you’ll get unlimited phone calls and texts, but the plans don’t include data—you have to purchase it separately. If you buy your prepaid phone plan online, you won’t have to pay an activation fee.

Here are some of the most affordable phones you can purchase at AT&T:

Device and ModelPrice
AT&T Radiant Core$34.99
Samsung Galaxy A11$74.99
AT&T Radiant Max$64.99
Samsung Galaxy A01$57.49
LG Phoenix 4$39.98

How To Get an AT&T Temporary Phone

Buying a prepaid phone plan at the AT&T online store is the easiest and most affordable way. AT&T encourages its customers to shop online by relieving them of the $15 SIM card activation fee. It also offers free shipping and free return shipping.

You can buy your prepaid phone number by contacting AT&T’s customer service.

Use DoNotPay To Avoid Revealing Your Personal Phone Number to Any Company

Using your personal phone number for surveys, dating apps, and social media websites can go from being slightly frustrating to downright dangerous. In the 21st century, information is easily accessible, especially because people leave their email and phone numbers without reading the Privacy Policy document.

What if you could leave a fake phone number on the service you’re applying for? With DoNotPay’s Burner Phone feature, you can!

Burner phones are not the cheapest option, so our app enables you to use a temporary phone number. Create an account on DoNotPay’s website in any and do the following to create your new burner number:

  1. Click on the Burner Phone feature
  2. Tell our app which company you need the number for
  3. Tap on Create a Temporary Number

DoNotPay will generate a new fake number, which will be active for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, it will deactivate automatically. This temporary number is intended for one-time use, but DoNotPay allows you to create multiple numbers per month.

Our app is not like other services that charge more than $50 annually.

We don’t charge extra for the Burner Phone service—it comes with your subscription.

If the company is requesting your credit card, DoNotPay has the right feature for you! You can use our virtual credit cards for almost any service.
