Hypothetically yes, but you may not even need to buy the first device. You may be able to just buy the nexus 5 when it comes out, then go to a store and pick up your sim. If you're the only one on your plan is much cheaper to go prepaid than postpaid. The at&t go phone 60 dollar plan has unlimited minutes and texts with 2gb of data with no extra fees or taxes other than sales tax.
