What Does Deleting an eSIM Do? Understanding the Implications and How Firsty Supports You

As eSIM technology becomes more prevalent, understanding how to manage your eSIM profiles is crucial for maintaining seamless connectivity. One common question is: what does deleting an eSIM do? In this blog post, we’ll explore the implications of deleting an eSIM, when it might be necessary, and how Firsty’s features and support can help you manage your eSIM effectively.

 What Happens When You Delete an eSIM?

1. Loss of Network Connection

   - Deleting an eSIM profile removes the associated mobile network from your device. This means you will no longer have access to the data, voice, and SMS services provided by that eSIM.

2. Need for Reinstallation

   - Once deleted, the eSIM profile must be reinstalled to regain access to its services. This process typically involves re-scanning a QR code or entering a unique code provided by your eSIM provider.

3. Potential Data Loss

   - Any data, such as contacts or messages stored within the eSIM, may be lost when the eSIM is deleted. It's important to back up any crucial information before deletion.

4. Will need to contact customer support

   - When you delete your eSIM, you'll need to contact customer support for them to manually load you a new eSIM. This usually takes some time and sometimes will require a completely new account to be made.

That's why we recommend you never delete your eSIM unless customer support tells you to!

 When Should You Delete an eSIM?

1. Switching to a New Provider

   - If you are switching mobile network providers and need to replace the existing eSIM with a new one, deleting the old eSIM might be necessary.

2. Resolving Technical Issues

   - In some cases, deleting and reinstalling an eSIM can resolve connectivity issues that simple troubleshooting steps haven’t fixed.

3. Freeing Up eSIM Slots

   - Some devices have limited eSIM slots. Deleting an old or unused eSIM can free up space for new eSIM profiles.

 How to Delete an eSIM

Deleting an eSIM is usually straightforward:

1. Go to your device’s settings.

2. Navigate to the mobile network or cellular settings.

3. Select the eSIM profile you wish to delete.

4. Follow the prompts to delete the eSIM.
