How to install BNE eSIM on your iPhone with QR Code/Manual Method


Make sure your device has a stable internet connection while installing your eSIM.

Please ignore if you receive any warning on the eSIM connection from Apple if you did not reach your destination yet. Your plan will be automatically activated upon landing at your destination and once connected to the local network.

Click “Add eSIM”, then click “Use QR Code”

Scan the QR code available on your BNESIM application. (You can scan the QR code using a printed copy or another device that displays the code)

Alternatively, you can choose the option “Enter Details Manually”. By selecting this option, you will be prompted to enter the “SM-DP+ Address” and “Activation Code”. This can be found on the BNESIM application under the QR code.
