Today’s the day.
It's here. If you have a compatible iPhone, you can switch to eSIM via the Mint Mobile app.
I’ve been dreaming about the promise of eSIM since the day Apple announced it was coming to iPhone; and now that it’s available on Mint, I finally get to check that off of my bucket list. We’re one of the first independent MVNOs to offer this technology in the US - and I’m constantly grateful for the team that made this happen.
If you’re a new customer, we’ve got eSIM for you as well! Select eSIM as your shipping method during checkout.
Which iPhone models support eSIM?
iPhone XR, iPhone XS, iPhone XS Max, all iPhone 11 models, the new iPhone SE, and the iPhone 12 lineup (all models). For more details see here
Do I get 5G with eSIM?
Your Mint eSIM will have access to our 5G network. If you have Dual SIM enabled on iPhone 12, iPhone 12 mini, iPhone 12 Pro, iPhone 12 Pro Max, you will have to disable Dual SIM mode to use 5G. Learn more here
How do I switch to eSIM?
Physical SIM to eSIM -
First, make sure you have the most recent update of the app.
Login to the app > tap on “Account” > select “Order Replacement SIM.” You’ll be asked to provide a form of payment for your replacement SIM; but you won’t be charged anything at completion.
Select “Get an eSIM” as your option (please note that this option will only be visible on an eligible device)
Select “This is my new device” and make sure that you are using the device that you want to install eSIM on.
Once it’s processed, you will be prompted to install your eSIM. Please follow the steps carefully to set your eSIM.
Once it’s installed, you’re done!
