Enabling eSIM (embedded SIM) depends on the device you have.
Here are some general steps to enable eSIM:
- Check if your device supports eSIM: Not all devices support eSIM. You can check your device’s manual, manufacturer’s website, or carrier’s website to see if your device supports eSIM.
2. Get an eSIM plan: You’ll need to get an eSIM plan from your carrier. The process of getting an eSIM plan may vary depending on your carrier.
3. Scan the QR code: After you’ve purchased an eSIM plan, you’ll receive a QR code from your carrier. Open the eSIM settings on your device and scan the QR code.
4. Follow the prompts: Your device will guide you through the process of activating the eSIM. You may need to enter some information, such as your phone number, to complete the activation process.
5. Set the eSIM as your default: Once the eSIM is activated, you can set it as your default SIM for voice, data, and messaging.
Keep in mind that the process of enabling eSIM may vary depending on your device and carrier. It’s best to consult your device’s manual or your carrier’s website for specific instructions.
