    Between what I read from here and Reddit, Tracfone's iPhone eSIM system is very hit or miss.

    Some people has seen a few people get an iPhone 14 activated, and other people can not get an iPhone 14 activated.

    I am not sure what is going on since I do not have iPhone and have not used an eSIM yet.

    I have an iPhone 14 Pro Max and had a TF line on an eSIM since early October and have not had any issues with data speeds or signal. The eSIM was activated on a new line. At the time, TF didn't really have a procedure to activate an eSIM on an existing light and might still not.

    No luck trying to add a 3rd esim to a 14, no imei number, so unless Tracfone starts to use the QR code, don’t know or heard of any other way.

    I'm not sure what you mean by no IMEI number. My 14 has two. Just go into Settings, General, About and scroll down and you should see them.

    Now you said 3rd SIM, so if both IMEIs are in use on your phone, you just go into Settings, Cellular and turn one of the eSIMs off temporarily. Then go back to About menu and enter the available IMEI into the TF website to create the new line.

    You can have two eSIMs on at once, but multiple eSIMs on the phone. So you can turn each of the active eSIMs on or off as needed.

    Here's how it works. If you have three eSIMs and you have two turned on, those two are using different IMEI numbers. If you turn on the third eSIM, there will be a popup that says you must turn off an existing cellular plan. So you just select which plan you want to turn off and the iPhone will assign the eSIM of the one being turned on to the IMEI number of the plan you turned off.

    It all works very smoothly and rapidly and you can switch back and forth between plans easily.

    And just because you activated a Tracfone account with a particular IMEI number, that doesn't mean it can't use the other IMEI on the iPhone 14. After activation, my TF line has been assigned to both IMEI's from time to time as i have alternated eSIMs and it has worked fine.
