    Buy iPhone 13 Pro at AT&T store

    Anyone know if I can just go to an AT&T store to buy an iPhone 13 Pro for my prepaid account? I don't see any iPhones listed on this page:https://www.att.com/buy/prepaid-phones/

    I still want a physical SIM, but I want the Pro cameras and extra RAM the Pro has.

    I can stop by a store and ask, but I thought someone here might know.

    Thanks,
    Ted

    i think the ones with the blue box can be ordered online and be picked up an your nearest AT&T store.
    or better yet, just buy the sim free unlocked version from the apple store.

    Thanks. Normally I would just order from Apple directly, but when the 14 Pro came out, the 13 Pro was no longer available on their site. It just says "Available at authorized resellers"

    FWIW: I stopped by an AT&T corporate store near my house, and they would not sell me an iPhone 13 Pro unless I switched to postpaid. They were polite and apologetic about it, and checked with their management to confirm. They said they stopped selling iPhones to prepaid customers not too long ago with no reason given. That seems to match what is on the AT&T website under prepaid phones. I know they used to sell older iPhones as my wife's previous job involved buying unactivated iPhones to use in medical devices and AT&T prepaid was a common place to get them.

    Can you get one from Best Buy?

    Actually, I just looked, and it seems like they only have the option to "Activate Today" (postpaid), no "Activate Later".

    Yes, it appears Apple is really working hard to get the 13 Pro's out of the supply chain. They likely feel that having them around keeps people from buying new 14 Pro's.

    I found an unlocked one on the Costco site:

    AT&T had plenty. They also had 12 Pros. AT&T or Apple just don't want them selling them to prepaid customers directly. I think I've decided to give up on avoiding the eSIM and will get a non-Pro 14. The camera bump on the 14 Pro is just too much.
