Activate your eSIM

To activate your eSIM, you can scan the carrier's QR code, install an assigned plan, or enter the information manually.

2. When the Cellular Plan Detected notification appears, tap it.

3. Tap Continue at the bottom of the screen.

4. Tap Add Cellular Plan.

If you're asked to enter a confirmation code to activate the eSIM, enter the number that your carrier provided.

Install an assigned cellular plan

With iOS 13, some carriers can assign a cellular plan for you to install. Contact us for more information.

If a plan was assigned to you, follow these steps:

1. When a notification appears that says Carrier Cellular Plan Ready to Be Installed, tap it.

2. In the Settings app, tap Carrier Cellular Plan Ready to Be Installed.

You can store more than one eSIM in your iPhone, but you can use only one at a time. To switch eSIMs, tap Settings → either Cellular or Mobile Data → the plan you want to use. Then tap Turn On This Line.

Only one line at a time can use cellular data. To change which line uses cellular data, follow these steps:

1. Go to Settings.

2. Go to Cellular/Mobile Data.

3. Tap again Cellular/Mobile Data.

4. Tap the line you want to use cellular data.

If you turn on Allow Cellular/Mobile Data Switching, you will allow your device to use mobile data from both lines depending on coverage and availability.
