USA eSIM Unlimited 30 Days | T-Mobile

Mona Updated by Mona

First things first.. SIM Activation

Your T-Mobile eSIM will be sent to your device and activated based on the Activation Date(s) that you provide during checkout. Once your order has been processed, you will receive an email with instructions on how to provide your EID and IMEI number which can be found in your device settings. You will need an internet connection to install and activate your eSIM. 

If you’re unsure about your Activation Dates, you can add in estimated date/s for your SIMs. Once you know your dates, please let us know via email at hello@simsdirect.com.au or our live chat.

How does activation work?

  1. Your eSIM will be activated on the date that you provide during checkout.
  2. Once you arrive at your destination country, you will get a notification to finish Mobile Set-Up
  3. Follow the prompts for activation
  4. Set the Default line to Primary and Mobile data to Secondary and make sure that Mobile Data Switching is Switched off
  5. Turn on Data Roaming in your settings
  6. Restart your device

Easy peasy! 🙌

What do I do if I don't get a notification to set up my eSIM?

When your activation date comes around and there is still no prompt for you to set up the eSIM, you will just need to scan the QR code below and it will prompt you to activate.

The QR code is the same for everyone as once you scan it will read the EID and IMEI that you provided us and apply the SIM you purchased.

If you scan this and it doesn't allow you to set up or it says 'already in use' please reach out and confirm with us your activation date, as this means that your SIM is not activated yet.

What do I do if my data isn't working?

If you've just activated your eSIM

If you've just activated your eSIM and you've got a signal, you might need to check a couple of things to get your data working.

  1. Check that you have Data Roaming & Mobile Data turned on in your Settings.
  2. Make sure that you have changed your APN settings to match the following:
    Name: T-Mobile
    APN: Fast.t-mobile.com (for LTE devices) or epc.tmobile.com (for non-LTE devices)
    User name: Not set
    Password: Not set
  3. Restart your phone

If you've been using your eSIM but suddenly your data has stopped working
  1. Check that you have data balance left by dialling #932#
  2. Try turning your device off and on
  3. Check the coverage in the area you are in
  4. If your phone says it's connected to LTE or 4G but the data isn't working, try to manually turn off LTE/4G to connect to 4G/3G.

Apple:

Settings > Mobile > Mobile data options > Disable LTE > Restart

Android:

Settings > Connections > Mobile Networks > Network Mode > Switch to 3G/2G > Restart

It might look different depending on your device! If these instructions don't match exactly, explore your settings until you find Network Mode

I've tried everything and it's still not working
