Prepaid eSIM online

I just purchased a prepaid plan and eSIM online. It sent me an email to verify with my ID which I did. But now nothing.. I thought they sent your eSIM number and phone number to your email? Does it usually take awhile? The person I got through to on online chat said they couldnt help and I had to call the prepaid number, I cant do that without a phone....?

We understand the importance and urgency to activate your PREPAID eSIM, slone253.

 

Our first recommendation would be to use this resource to activate your eSIM online

 

Download an eSIM to a new AT&T device

  • Transferring your number from another provider? Be sure to activate your phone first. Then turn it on and follow the prompts to download your eSIM.
  • Have an existing AT&T number? Just turn on your new phone and follow the prompts to download your eSIM.
     

Ready to move your number to an unlocked phone you purchased somewhere other than AT&T? Here's how:

 

1. Start at Bring Your Own Device.

2. Select Switch the device used on my line.

3. Follow the prompts to download and activate your eSIM.

 

Our second recommendation would be to activate your PREPAID plan. Just input your ICCID, IMEI and service ZIP code, then click Continue to get started. 

 

Please let us know if this helps. If not, we can continue offering you further support. Thank so much for reaching out to AT&T Community Forums!

Nelson, thank you for your response. This hasn’t helped me, I am still having to wait for the QR code to even begin activation. I was able to get someone on chat to tell me they would send the email with the code within 24 hrs. Is that correct?
