Hi, I have just upgraded my handset and contract from an iPhone to 13 to 15. I had to activate my eSIM on my old phone as it arrived before the new phone  and the old phone stopped having network. I have now received my new phone but the esim won’t transfer - it states the sim in your old iPhone does not support eSIM transfer. I have also tried using the original QR code but this no longer works. What should I do next please? Thanks

Unfortunately @Roisin Town, iD Mobile don’t support eSIM transfers from one device to another device.

Forum members can’t look at customers accounts, nor issue an eSIM.

Probably best to contact iD customer service about this, @Roisin Town - hopefully they’ll be able to send you (email) a replacement eSIM.

The iD advisers work until 8pm on weekdays - the iD chatbot works 24/7.
