What is an eSIM?
An eSIM is a virtual electronic SIM card that lets you activate your phone on the Verizon network. Depending on your phone, you can have more than one wireless provider active at a time.
Why you should care: Free Trial lets you experience Verizon’s amazing network performance and unlimited premium data on the fastest 5G network for 30 days, without disrupting your existing service.
Here’s what you’ll get with your free trial:
- Up to 30 days on Verizon 5G Ultra Wideband (on compatible phones), 5G Nationwide and 4G LTE, on us
- Unlimited talk and text
- Up to 100 GB of 4G/5G data with Verizon’s premium network experience
- 480p streaming on 4G LTE and 5G Nationwide; 4K streaming on 5G Ultra Wideband
- No commitment or credit check
- Access to a wireless service you’ll never want to leave
Who it’s for: The program is for non-Verizon customers who are considering switching to Verizon and want to try it out without any contractual obligations. You must have an unlocked smartphone to access Free Trial (check your existing carrier for more information about unlocking your phone). At any time during your 30-day Free Trial you can easily transfer your existing number to Verizon and pick from one of our awesome 5G Unlimited plans.
Why do I need an unlocked phone?
An unlocked phone allows you to move your phone to another carrier or try out another network. Other carriers might demand you pay off your existing phone in full or call into customer service to liberate it from their network. Free Trial will check your phone and let you know if it is unlocked.
Regardless of whether you jump into one of our stellar Mix & Match plans or go all in with our new One Unlimited for iPhone plan, Verizon has the perfect plan to meet your needs.
