In app step through Switch Now

enter IMEI for your phone (on iPhone the IMEI can be found in Settings:General:About)

Continue with esim install

First up couldn't make a call.

After a few mins it was working.

I updated to the new version of the app that was released today, then I removed the old esim and got a new one from the app. after a few minutes i was able to receive calls. 

 

thank goodness.

Any suggestions for me? I have a physical SIM, not an eSIM.  I updated the app and took the SIM out, turned the phone off, put the SIM back in, turned the phone back on, but still cannot receive calls.  So aggravating!

 

Following, my phone doesn't support eSIM

I have same issue: cannot receive any calls since transferred my line on 10/3. I use a physical sim card (not esim) in my iPhone 13 now. Can I follow this step? Please help. Thank you very much

@capbrown50  @AY I can only guess because I don't have a physical SIM on this phone. Perhaps something along the lines of reinstalling the SIM and running through the activation process again from scratch? But because of the physical sim you may be tied in to having to rely on Visible Customer Support.

Worked for me. iPhone 13. Updated app, removed e-sim, re-provisioned e-sim in the Visible app, rebooted phone. Incoming calls now working.

Thank you! Just to be clear, you were able to keep your phone number going through this process? Deleting the esim makes me nervous.

Correct. Deleting an e-sim doesn't delete your number from the Visible network.
