You can remove an eSIM from your device at any time, but the specific steps to do so may vary depending on your device and operating system.
Before removing an eSIM, it's important to understand that doing so will deactivate your cellular service/mobile data on that device. If you want to continue using your device for cellular service, you will need to insert a physical SIM card or activate a new eSIM.
Here are some general steps to remove an eSIM:
- Open the settings app on your device
- Look for the "Cellular" or "Mobile Data" option and select it
- Find the eSIM you want to remove and select it
- Look for the option to remove or delete the eSIM, and follow the prompts to complete the process.
Note that some devices may require a factory reset to remove an eSIM, which will erase all data and settings on the device.
It's also important to note that once you remove an eSIM, you may not be able to reactivate it on the same device or transfer it to another device. This will depend on the policies of your mobile network provider and the specific eSIM plan you have signed up for.
