Start using your service

  • When activating a device that has an eSIM, use the SIM card & eSIM page for detailed steps to activate.
    • eSIM only: If you brought your own device to T-Mobile and you activated with your eSIM, once you have transferred your number, remove your previous carrier’s eSIM profile. 
    • Check out our Device support to locate steps for your device.
  • If you’re using a device from your previous carrier, you must ensure the device is unlocked to use a T-Mobile SIM card.
