eSIM not installed when using T-Mobile eSim app
I have just enrolled for a prepaid account using T-Mobile eSim app. All the process seemed to work fine (I got a phone number and had my CC charged) but in the end there was some kind of problem installing the new eSim on my iPhone. Now it seems I am locked out of service, since the app requires a different e-mail and the creation of a new account to run again. How can I get the eSim for my existant and already paid for prepaid phone number now?
Transfer / migrate from the physical sim to eSIM
Hello! I have the physical t-mobile SIM and I want to transfer phone number to my eSIM account / to convert it into eSIM. At the moment I have two tmobile accounts and numbers, is it possible to merge em? (both accounts are prepaid)I talked to the tech support - and every time I called I had a different information:1st time i was told that in 24hrs everything would be done smoothly (nothing happened so I called again)2d time I was told that T-Mobile doesn't support a feature to transfer the physical sim into the eSIM (when both numbers are tmobile numbers)before the first call I tried to reach a text support online - they also didn't resolve any questions and just said that tmobile doesnt fully support eSIM.What is the truth here? Is it really not possible? Also an extra eSIM question - if I want to use the same eSIM on a different phone, how to achieve it? Or it is impossible now to perform any kind of eSIM transfers?Thanks for understanding.
Prepaid Plan: Whitelisted vs Data
Hello. I apologize if this question has already been asked and answered--I just couldn’t find a satisfactory answer through a quick search or when calling T-Mobile customer service.I just signed up for a $10 Connect prepaid plan with 1GB of data. On the usage details (under data), I see both categories called “whitelisted” and “data” under category for the service of internet access (a copy of the usage detail is attached).Can anyone give me an easy to understand explanation of why there is two categories of “whitelisted” and “data,” both of which really reduces the overall data anyway?One site (https://techshift.net/what-is-t-mobile-whitelist-and-regular-usage/) seems to indicate that “whitelisted” “doesn’t count towards a plan’s data bucket.” I’m not sure what that really means or if it is even accurate since there aren’t many similar explanations that I could find.Any assistance would be appreciated.

Will a prepaid walmart tmobile phone work by just putting in my existing tmo sim card in it?
My android moto phone is getting old and isn’t updating so I found a prepaid tmo samsung A13 at Walmart. Is this new phone “locked” into having to start a new prepaid plan or can I just simply put my existing postpaid sim card into it and turn it on and i’ll have my same service? Thanks!
Very frustrated with number porting a landline from TWC/Spectrum to T-Mobile Pre-paid
Please help me with a number porting that T-Mobile has not been able to complete even though I've called them over 5x in about 12 days, including two phone calls where both T-Mobile Pre-Paid number porting team and Spectrum customer service were on the call together with me.History:1. Got a T-Mobile prepaid SIM and activated it on a iPhone2. Registered a T-Mobile online account using that information3. Submitted a number porting request using the online tool: - Provided the Spectrum account number which had the format of 202-XXXXXXXXX-001 (202-<nine digit number>-001) - Provided the four digit account PIN that appeared on my Spectrum billing statement - Provided the phone number of the landline currently being provided by Spectrum/TWC4. Called a few days later since no text messages were received on my T-Mobile prepaid account - The temporary number was assigned by the in-store salesman when I purchased the pre-paid SIM - Was transferred to the numb
Reactivate my canceled line
I live outside the US and travel there several times, but due to the pandemic, it has been a long time since I last visited."I forgot to refill my prepaid line today. Earlier, I received an email informing me that my line has been canceled. To reactivate it, I was instructed to visit the t-mobile.com website or call the 1-800 number. However, I couldn't find a solution on the website, and when I called, I was kept waiting on hold without any assistance. Should I persist and try again, or should I give up and buy another SIM card during my next visit?
Porting Number Nightmare
I’ve been trying to port in a number into my tmobile prepaid account for over a month. Apparently there there is a glitch in T-Mobile’s system where my current number is stuck so it never even tries to initiate the port-in process. I’ve talked to support on the phone multiple times, I’ve been told it’s been escalated to engineering, and then that engineering is still working on it. Now I haven’t heard anything in over a week. Is there anyway to escalate this to someone who can actually fix the issue. This is getting beyond ridiculous.

It still has fund, as far as I know, but since it is removed, there is no way I can check.Definitely not authorized by me, but unable to call T-Mobile since not in US at the moment.Can someone from T-Mobile help me out here ? At least let me know why it got cancelled.Thanks.
Esim with existing t-mobile number?
Currently have a simply prepaid plan with T-mobile that I am very happy with. It uses an old fashioned SIM card. Looking to buy a new apple phone and use the eSim technology. It looks like my plan is offered on eSim. Question is - can I keep my existing number? I know you can port an existing number but this is essentially porting from T-mobile to t-mobile. Want to be sure before I drop $700. Has anyone done this and if so how?
Where is my Prepaid Cell Phone Pin Number
Where in my simply prepaid T-Mobile cell phone documentation is my Pin Number? I reset the cell phone (Samsung G360T Core Prime) and now the T-Mobile App is asking for either my Password for the cell phone number or my Pin Number if I forgot the Password. I didn't know I had a password or a pin number.
Porting number problem!
I decided to switch from straight talk to T-Mobile prepaid. I paid for a month of service and received a Sim card. I wanted to port port my number from the previous service and T-Mobile said they could. The new sim can make a call but not receive one. Can use data just fine. Cannot send or receive texts or MMS unless it's from T-Mobile. This morning I got a T-Mobile text saying there was a problem porting my number and that they'd call me, however this Sim cannot receive calls. What do I do? I called them and they said they would port it and that my issue was that the PIN I gave them was incorrect. They asked for the correct PIN, but I NEVER made a PIN or provided one. This whole thing is a mess and every call goes exactly the same.

T-Mobile Prepaid eSim Plan
Hi, I wanted to sign up for a T-Mobile Prepaid eSim plan for my iPhone 13 via the app. This is for my upcoming trip to the US. I am in Singapore. However when it comes to the payment page, I do not see my country Singapore listed. Does it mean I am unable to buy this plan? I only have Visa/MasterCard issued by banks in Singapore

I am home in Canada now.Does anyone know if I can reuse this sim card in another year from?I will be going back to Hawaii and it would make it much easier if I could just reuse the sim and join in the same plan that I just had.Any information would be helpful.Thanks
Starting date prepaid plan - eSIM app
Hi everyone,I’m looking to buy a prepaid plan via the eSim app for a six month stay in the US.I would like to purchase the plan ahead of time, so it activates on the arrival date and is ready to use when I land. As far as I can tell there is no way to set a starting date when purchasing the plan and it would be activated straight away. Is this the case or am I missing something? Other providers (like for example simly) provide the option to set an activation date. Otherwise I would have to deal with this upon arrival, when i have other things to do and need a working connection right away. Also i would like to know if there is a plan, which includes a flat for calls to Europe (Germany) or at least reduced international rates? As far as I can tell, there are only plans with flats for US calls only. Thanks for any help, best.
