    T-mobile network pass on TracFone esim

    I'd like to try the T-Mobile network pass offer where I can get unlimited data on the esim while still maintaining my existing tracfone phone number on a physical sim.

    I have a refurb iphone se 2020 but it hasn't been unlocked yet or been on the network long enough to be unlocked. Is unlocking for the physical sim or esim or both? Wondering if I can do this.

    Also what was the finding about unlocking, does it start when you activate or when you add it to the account?

    TracFone locked phones I believe are locked to TracFone.. any TracFone operated network but TracFone.

    My experience is esim remains locked with the phone till 60 days from activation.

    T-mobile network pass on TracFone esim

    Edited to add:

    It *DOES* work on iPhone SE2020! Thank you, capri17!!

    Leaving original, below, so thread makes sense.


    (IPhone SE 2020 isn’t eligible for the network pass, TMobile requires the phone be 5G, the SE 2020 is 4G.)

    Not true ,I have Tracfone(Verizon) on the physical sim and have the 3month free pass on E-sim on an unlocked Se 2020 .
    Also we have IP 11 with the same setup .
    5g Phones are not required ,only unlocked phones with E-sim !

    Interesting! Do you remember when yours started?

    TM told me that as of the release of iPhone 14, the SE 2020 was not eligible, and they couldn’t make it work. They suggested I use the Mint Mobile 7 day trial to check coverage. (I only get Verizon coverage through WiFi calling in my house, I’m curious about TM.)

    Thank you SO much! I tried again this morning, and it worked! I was able to get through the entire installation, and TM is on the e-sim. Thank you!!

    The Network Pass has expanded over time. It was just iPhone devices for a while, and probably more limited ones. They added Samsung and Google devices relatively recently. Been using it on a ZFold4 for 2 months now.

    Sorry for going slightly off topic here, but I would like my daughter to try the T-Mobile Network Pass. She currently has a Dent e-sim, so I assume she would have to delete that first. If later she wants to switch back to Dent, will she still be able to access the Dent data she has accumulated?

    You can have multiple esims. Just leave the Dent one there and switch back when done.

    T-Mobile’s eSIM app supports any T-Mobile or unlocked iPhone XS, XS Max or XR with iOS 12.1.1 or later. To download the T-Mobile eSIM app on iOS, go here.

    Yep. My pixel 6a is running a Google Fi and T-Mobile eSim. Essentially 2 different T-Mobile eSim as well as a TracFone AT&T Sim card. I might try adding a Dent eSim next.

    The T-Mobile Network Pass list of compatible devices doesn't include iPhone 14?
