How To: Activate an eSIM on Telecel Ghana

By Joseph-Albert Kuuire 2 Min Read

The introduction of eSIM technology by Telecel Ghana (formerly Vodafone) has brought a new level of convenience and flexibility to mobile phone usage in the country.

The eSIM (Embedded Subscriber Identity Module) allows users to activate a cellular plan without the need for a physical SIM card.

Here’s a comprehensive guide on how to activate your eSIM with Telecel Ghana.

Step 1: Check Device Compatibility

Before you begin, ensure that your device is eSIM compatible. This is a crucial step, as not all phones support eSIM technology. To check compatibility, simply dial 7006# on your device. If your phone is compatible, you can proceed to the next step.

Step 2: Provide Personal Information

You will be prompted to enter your personal details, starting with your first name, followed by your last name. These details are necessary to register your eSIM profile.

Step 3: Enter Your Ghana Card Number

The next step involves entering your Ghana Card number. This is part of the verification process to ensure that your eSIM is registered under your name and is a security measure to prevent fraud.

Step 4: Await Confirmation

After entering the required details, you will receive a confirmation SMS indicating that your eSIM activation is in process. This message will confirm that the details provided are correct and that Vodafone Ghana is setting up your eSIM.

Alternative Activation Method

If you encounter any issues with the USSD code method or prefer in-person assistance, you can visit any Vodafone Ghana retail shop. Bring along a valid Ghana Card for the staff to assist with the eSIM activation process.
