Sim card in pay as you go phones?

My cell phone doesn't work anymore and I don't have a lot of money. My question is: Can I take the sim card out of my phone and put it into one of those pas-as-you-go phones?

Please help me!!!

I believe as long as you get it from your carrier's pay as you go. For example, if you have AT&T, don't use a T-Mobile phone.

As jrobinson wrote, make sure it's for the same service provider. Also, make sure the pre-paid phone is a model that uses a SIM card; some of the really cheap pre-paid phones don't.
