Worked flawlessly
Got an iPhone 14 plus. Had Verizon prepaid and they wouldn’t let me add this phone to a prepaid account. So started searching for other providers since Verizon wouldn’t help me. They would only do it for a post paid account for triple the price I was paying. T-Mobile was first on the list. Tried adding a new prepaid account online and it wouldn’t work. Then seen this app in the help section. Downloaded and was up and running in under 10 minutes with a new number and account. 5G works (although it’s download is more like LTE, 26 mbps DL but upload is 18 so better than VZ lte) and everything was good to go. Anyone wondering why T-Mobile is growing faster than the other 2 in the US? This is why. Painless app to add eSIM only phones that works. No phone calls or endless transfers. This is how it’s done Verizon.

Great so far, highly recommend!
Can’t say about service or billing yet but so far SO GREAT! I have AT&T prepaid right now and I legit had to go into a store and wait for 30 min just to start service on an eSIM! Super inconvenient for me not to mention I was activating an electronic sim there’s nothing physical that should make me physically have to go into a store! Now with T-Mobile prepaid it was as easy as installing an app onto my iPhone then picking out/paying for a plan and DONE! Very easy hassle free CUSTOMER FRIENDLY process and so far I am very very pleased!

Easy to use!
I made the decision to switch from Mint Mobile and Visible Wireless due to sever deprioritization issues. I made the decision to go with T Mobile prepaid. I stumbled across this app and couldn’t believe how easy it was to set up on my iPhone 12 Pro. The only “issue” I had was that I didn’t see any option in the app to port my number from my previous carrier (It assigned me a new number), but I made a phone call to T Mobile prepaid and it was ported instantly! It took maybe 5 minutes, in total, on the phone (make sure you have your account number and pin from your previous carrier). Very minor inconvenience, but if that option was added to the app, it would make this app PERFECT.

Good app but small problem with buying from outside US
I like the idea of being able to buy a 30 day prepaid plan before traveling to US. A couple months ago I was able to buy the plan without any problem while being outside of the US, but now the app shows an error while trying to open it being outside of the US. I had to use a VPN connection in order to use the app and buy the plan. It was easier last time when I didn’t have to use the VPN connection. It made more sense to give the ability to buy the plan to use in US before arriving in the country. I don’t know why t-mobile changed that.

Clutch App
I had just opened my iPhone 14 Pro and wanted to convert my physical Verizon SIM to a Verizon eSIM. After multiple calls to customer service, both my new phone and old phone were no longer able to receive calls, texts or use data. I downloaded this app in need of cell service and within 5 minutes I was setup and ready to go. Porting my existing number was easy too. The convenience of this app definitely brings in new customers.

This is BIG
Since I use T and Metro sims while visiting US, I always struggle - go to store, buy a SIM card, extra expenses, no refill for Metro, system do not accept non US cards... This app makes my life much easier - thanks Only improvement you can do is to add a week or two plans for tourists who do not stay for a month and just visit for short period of time

Does not work with Display Zoom enabled
The eSIM is great and price can’t be beat but I could not create an account while Display Zoom accessibility setting was on - the Next button needed to advance from the first page of setup was offscreen due to larger image and no scrolling was possible. Once I fixed this I had some problems with getting bank payment to succeed - it failed with two different credit cards. I tried with a third debit card on which I am principal card holder (I was only additional for first two) and also I enabled precise location for the app - I don’t know which change or changes made a difference but the “third time paid for all” as they say. It would be great if T-Moble could fix the issue with Display Zoom - it is helpful for everyone who just needs larger view so they can read the phone without needing glasses.

Doesn’t support autofill, or account help
I was able to use this app to successfully start service in my phone using an eSIM. But the process was so much more difficult than it needed to be. My biggest complaint is that the app does not support autofill — for name, email, or (worst of all) credit card information. This is completely unacceptable, given how many years autofill support has been easy for developers to add. Other problems: - the app does not help set up an online account, so I had to do that on the website after the fact - after starting service, when I open the app again it does not automatically recognize that I have service—it again asks for my email (after that, it recognizes my account, but takes me out of the app to the website)

Great app few kinks
Great app for family visiting from abroad, but: 1) still need a card issued in the US to pay (perhaps other countries work, but so far no luck with LATAM cards) 2) I still need to help users 65+ set this up, it could definitely be more intuitive, especially when leaving the country and providing assistance deleting the esim from the phone itself 3) no data at all in America’s top 5G network? Perhaps 2-3 gigs?

Security concerns!!!!!!
It’s a great idea and I have been excited about eSIM for months waiting for my carrier to unlock my phone after the 90 day period. T-Mobile was innovative by releasing this app but their US operations have no commitment to security. Their customer support is terrible and they’ve been suspicious and dishonest toward me. I am 99% sure they compromised my phones security or at the very least deliberately altered setting on my line and went against my wishes. I noticed that Telekom Deutsche has much higher standards than US operations. And I am an investor and they did this to me so imagine the average customer.

I have been pulling out hairs with this prepaid plan system but I downloaded this app and I have service and a phone number is one minute. AMAZING, so simple, so affordable! Get this app it is so simple and way easier to navigate then other prepaid plans. You don’t even need a SIM card it’s great. 5 stars!

Half baked solution
So when I first used the app I thought it was brilliant. You give your email. You choose a plan. You get the esim installed with no hassle. Really great. However as a visitor I left the states and now I’m heading back. You can’t reuse the app. You need to give an email, which they clearly remember but they won’t allow you to activate a new prepaid number or get your old one active again. When talking to support they need your T-Mobile account but the app doesn’t really helps you to create an account. So this really smooth and easy solution for travelers is really half baked. I would expect that the system (which again recognizes my email) locate your email or help you create an account and then allow you to get a new prepaid plan every time you travel.

Have to call to cancel
Myself and 2 members of my family added the prepaid digital eSIM to our phones while we were on vacation in the USA from Europe. It worked pretty well, though getting messaging set-up correctly took some time. The big problem is that the only way to cancel the line and avoid future charges once we returned to Europe, was to call customer service. There needs to be a way to cancel through the app or I won't use this again on our next trip to the US.

Wow. Hello e-sim
I’m contemplating a switch from Verizon to T-Mobile. I really need to test drive T-Mobile coverage first. Setting up the pre-paid account and configuring my iPhone XS was smooth as silk. What a great option to try out T-Mobile. Totally worth the price of a month of prepaid service.

Scammer and not works! Tourists get out Tmobile!
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?

To ppl bought their device in CHINA
To ppl bought their device in CHINA, DO NOT DOWNLOAD THIS APP!! It will say device not compatible with this app and cannot use eSIM on this device. Chinese iPhone does not support eSIM and this app will not work as normal. The app is good and easy to purchase a plan on the phone. No need too many steps. Good.

Super easy set up I had a iPhone XS who I bought from someone. They hadn’t payed their bill in months and I didn’t want to go through a process of calling an operator or wait super long. This literally gave me a number and set up my new cellular data in 5 minutes. Awesome!!!

Error 505
Tried a bunch of different approaches, but ultimately I always ended up with a 505 error. The phone number on the error screen recommended calling support, who in turn recommended “trying again.” I have tried again maybe six or seven times now with different combos of WiFi on/off, SIM card installed/removed - I give up. I’ll just stick to WiFi for the duration of my trip.

Waste of time
Went through everything, paid and even grabbed the e-sim and never received a confirmation email and I had no service. Checked and I was charged, called twice spent 2 hours on the phone and no resolution since they could not locate anything. I will have to go through my bank now since I have a charge from them.

Only works for limited countries
Traveling from Bermuda and thought this was a good way to get service before arriving. Have to load the app and get all the way through to payment only to find out they don’t take many international credit cards. Disappointed and now have to go hunting for a store to buy a sim when we get there.

Missing Data only plans
This isn’t helpful for dual e-sim devices. I get to the plan selection screen and the prepaid data plans aren’t listed. I don’t need another voice plan. It’s frustrating that T-Mobile makes it so hard to add a second data to a device.

Cannot Advance Past the 3rd Page
I select which plan I want on the “Select a Prepaid plan” page, I tap “Next,” a loading animation plays, some terms pop up, I tap “Accept,” another loading animation plays, and the “Select a Prepaid plan” page appears again. Tapping “Next” starts that loop all over again. This app is functionally useless.

Doesn’t work.
Once again T- Mobile took my money and didn’t deliver service. It went all the way through charging my credit card but when trying to activate the E sim said the eSIM was not compatible with this phone. It’s an iPhone 14. Way to go TMobile. Would have been nice you told me before taking my money.

ZERO Stars - Cheap plans are still missing
Don’t even waste your time, as you can’t get the $15 unlimited talking and text with 2 GB., Rather typical, with hold the best deals to try to soak an Apple user. Thanks TMO... it seems like you’re definitely bringing the Sprint trash with you in the merger... so sad. Hello... T-mobile, this damages your brand and makes you look like greedy Verizon.
