Is your phone eSIM compatible? 

See if your device is compatible by selecting it from the list below. 

If your device is incompatible or not on this list, your phone cannot be used with an eSIM. Please consider one of our physical SIM cards. We will mail it directly to you.

Visit and choose a plan. Then select physical SIM.

Now, Let's Set up Your New eSIM:

If your device is compatible, let's continue.

Note: The names of the buttons or folders on your phone might differ based on your device model. For instance, on a Samsung phone, you'll find internet and Wi-Fi settings under a folder named "Connections," On a Google Pixel phone, these settings are located in a folder called "Network & Internet." We're here to assist you with setting up your new eSIM. However, if you encounter any issues, refer to your phone's user manual for specific instructions on setting up the eSIM.
