And in addition to that, even if you get a SIM card that "works" for the unlocked phone you select/purchase, you need to know if it's going to receive a signal where you need service. That means get some info on prepaid/carrier coverage before you purchase.
In the U.S. at least, it can vary across metropolitan areas/locales/services. And don't forget that some prepaid doesn't include roaming coverage if you need it. Important example: you reside on a far exurbor small town outside of a major city that butts up against a roaming carrier or dead zone. This sometimes means they can sell you prepaid but it won't always work on the edge of such a marginal coverage area. YMMV.
