Getting Your Device Ready For eSIM Activation?

Before you download and activate the eSIM on the device, you have to prepare the device for the process. These are some of the things you have to do to get your device ready for activation:

a. High-Speed Wireless Internet

The entire activation process is handled online. So, you need to connect your device to a wireless network to complete the process. Sadly, you can’t use your mobile data to complete the process. The network has to be high-speed internet to complete the process efficiently.

b. Update Device Firmware

Regardless of if you are downloading the eSIM on a new phone or an existing one you need to update the firmware or software on the phone. Firmware is the software that powers major functionality on a device.
