After you check your Android is eSIM compatible and network unlocked, you can prepare to install an eSIM. For successful installation and setup of your eSIM, you should have a stable internet connection, preferably WiFi.

Installation interface may vary on different Android devices. Let’s take Google Pixel 6 as an example to see how to install an eSIM.

There are two ways you can install a Textr eSIM on Android devices. You can choose either QR code eSIM installation or Manual eSIM installation.
