How do I activate using an eSIM?

If you’re activating your eSIM through the Mint app, it will walk you through the installation. If you’re activating through the web, it’s pretty easy, and we walk you through the steps. Once you purchase your plan and select an ‘eSIM delivery’ then you can choose to either activate your plan right away, or activate later in two easy steps…

  1. Activate your plan– On the order confirmation page there will be a large orange button which says ‘Activate now’. Hit this if you wish to activate your plan immediately after purchase. If you want to wait, no problem. We will email you with the same link to activate at your leisure.
  2. Install your eSIM– Once your plan is activated, then you will need to install the eSIM onto the eligible phone you will be using Mint on. To do this, you will scan the QR code that appears on screen after you activate your plan. If you close the screen before scanning, again no problem. We’ll be following up with an email that will contain the QR code.
