ESIM not installed - Stuck on Step 6 of Activation

Great Neighbour / Super Voisin

Just purchased a plan and activation is stuck on "ESIM not installed" page. I still haven't received a welcome email from Public. I did receive it for my other lines. Chat support is not available. Submitted a ticket - awaiting a reply.

Checked the SIM settings. No e-sim was installed. Rebooted and did a rest as well just in case but still nothing.

S23 Ultra. Yep, used the app to subscribe. Usually I get the welcome email which has the QR code to scan for activation but didn't get it. Just submitted a ticket so lets see what happens. 



there is a chance that the error was there because the Public Mobile esim is already installed and just not properly enabled

On Android:  Check your Sim Card Manager and see if a Public Mobile eSim is there.  If so, make sure it is enabled.  

On iPhone: check Settings > Celluar and see if the eSIM is there.  If it is, make sure the PM eSIM is set as Primary on "Cellular Plan Label" and "Turn on This Line" is toggled on

If the Public Mobile eSIM is there, disable or delete those non PM sim (eSIM/Physical sim). 
If the non-PM sim is physical, remove it.  If the non-PM sim is an esim, disable using the SIM Manager on the phone (or set as Secondary and turn off "Turn on this line" for this non-PM esim)  

Then reboot the phone and click Reset All Networks on your phone and it will work.  (Please note that Reset all Networks will also erase your saved Wifi and Bluetooth connections, but you just need to add them back after). Also, it is possible you have to reset it multiple times for it to work.

if it still does not work, open ticket with PM support using Chatbot:
