AT&T offers service sans phone

AT&T has quietly launched a SIM-only service on its online store. The SIM costs $5 after an online discount and allows new subscribers to sign up for AT&T's service without having to buy a phone. The SIM reportedly works with both unlocked phones and AT&T locked handsets, but unless subscribers choose to sign up for prepaid service, the SIM still requires a two-year contract. The move marks the first offering from AT&T that speaks to its claim about being the most open network in the U.S.
