December is the time for warmth, comfort and festive nights and T-Mobile has come up with an update to add to all the merry-making. The Google Pixel series of smartphones had eSIM services activated since the Pixel 2 model, but T-Mobile was never a part of it. However, the security update launched by T-Mobile for the last month of the year comes with a gift for Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL users. These phones can now run an eSIM using T-Mobile’s services.
This is big news because the eSIM facility provided by T-Mobile now extends over to android phones. Previously, only iPhone XR or higher could opt for the T-Mobile eSIM features. This is a great advantage for those who are using two SIM cards for a variety of reasons. You can have a different network in the physical SIM card slot and you will continue to receive texts or call on both your contact numbers.
How to Download Settings in Your Google Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL?
- Reach a T-Mobile store to activate your eSIM or change the physical SIM for an electronic one. Your eSIM is not likely to work if you are thinking of skipping this step.
- Access to the internet is mandatory to activate eSIM. It is better if you are connected to a Wi-Fi network.
- If you are upgrading to an eSIM from a physical one, then you have to remove the physical SIM before you can activate the eSIM.
- Once you are done with these steps, it is time for you to download the eSIM settings using the QR code. You can find the relevant steps to follow by going to the Settings option in your Google Pixel 4 or Pixel 4 XL phone. The steps to follow are Settings >Network & Internet> Mobile Network.
Things You Can Do With An eSIM
By following the above mentioned simple steps, you can easily obtain eSIM facilities for your Pixel 4 or Pixel 4 XL. An eSIM feature is a handy tool for smartphones. Having access to more than one SIM is a great way of managing two contact numbers- one for work and one for other purposes. You do not have to depend on physical SIM cards anymore either.
All you need is a Wi-Fi connection and you are good to go with an eSIM. You can also opt for an eSIM while holding on to your previous physical SIM card if you are hoping to test a network connection before opting for it. Google Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL can do a lot more with the new December update.
