Fix Airtel eSIM iPhone: Unable to activate eSIM/Unsupported eSIM

When you have scanned the eSIM QR code, and want to activate it, you may encounter this error" Unable to Activate eSIM".

This usually occurs when you have installed an eSIM but haven’t yet arrived at your destination country/region. Regardless of whether it displays " Activating" or " Activation Failure," you can rest easy knowing that the eSIM is fully installed. Once you arrive at your destination and are within the network coverage area, the activation process will be finished.

If you have arrived at your destination and still display this error, no worry, here we provide a few steps for you to cope with this:

  • Restart your device

If any phone problem occurs, the first of all resolutions is to restart your phone. In many cases, it does work! Start by performing a simple restart of your device. This can help clear temporary glitches or minor software hiccups that might be preventing the eSIM from activating.

  • Check your network connection

Ensure that you have a stable internet connection, whether it's through Wi-Fi or cellular data. A weak or unstable connection can cause issues during the eSIM activation process. Try switching between Wi-Fi and cellular data or connecting to a different network to see if it resolves the problem.

  • Disable and re-enable the eSIM

Go to your device's settings and locate the eSIM settings. Disable the eSIM and wait for a few moments before enabling it again. This can refresh the connection and may help resolve the activation issue.

  • Update your device's software

It's essential to keep your device's software up to date. Manufacturers often release software updates that address various issues and improve system stability. Check for any available updates for your device and install them if necessary.

  • Contact your cellular carrier

If the above steps do not resolve the issue, it's recommended to reach out to your cellular carrier or eSIM issuer for assistance. They will have specific troubleshooting steps or may need to activate the eSIM from their end.
