How To Check If Your Android Device Supports eSIM?

MicroEsim provides an eSIM compatible device list for easy checking. In some countries and regions, models may be released that do not support eSIM functionality. Alternatively, the carrier where you purchased your device may not have eSIM enabled.

• Check Carrier-unlocked >>

Please follow the steps below to check whether your Android device supports eSIM technology. It's worth noting that this method doesn't exactly work on all devices. Whether a device is eSIM compatible depends on whether the manufacturer includes an eSIM. The best way to confirm if your eSIM is compatible is still through your device manufacturer, supplier or major carrier.


For Samsung Galaxy:

For other Android devices:

1. Dial *#06# and press the call button.

2. If your device is eSIM-compatible, you should be able to view your device’s eSIM unique identification number (EID).


Please remember to check with your device manufacturer, vendor, or primary carrier to confirm eSIM capability if you are still unsure.


Important: Your device must also be carrier unlocked to use eSIM. This enables you to use multiple SIM cards or eSIM cards from different operators. Here are two methods to check if your Android device is carrier-unlocked. 


1. Contact your Seller / Service Provider

• If you bought your phone directly from a manufacturer like Samsung, it's likely already unlocked.

• If your phone was bought from a telecom provider (e.g., Orange, AT&T, or Movistar), it may be restricted to their network. Contact the provider for confirmation. They can inform you whether your phone is network-locked and assist with unlocking it if necessary.


2. Use another SIM Card

The simplest method to check your phone's status is to use a SIM card from a friend or family member.

• If you can successfully make a call or send a text with the borrowed SIM, your phone is unlocked.

• If you're unable to make calls or send texts using the new SIM card, this indicates that your phone is tied to your original provider and is not compatible with eSIMs.
