Add eSIM hangs indefinitely

Hello:

I have an issue with the SIM card manager on my Galaxy S23. I purchased the phone in ~February 2023, and successfully purchased, installed, and used an eSIM abroad (via Airalo) in March 2023. Seamless as always, no problem. 

Following a system update later in the year (i don't know exactly, maybe August/September 2023), I can no longer add an eSIM, in either Airalo or the SIM Card manager. When I click "Add eSIM", the indictor starts to spin, but it hangs indefinitely. When I attempt to install an eSIM via Airalo, the app just hangs/waits indefinitely as well. This happens when i'm on my home network, on wifi, with VPN on and VPN off. 

The steps i've taken to remedy are:

  • restart the phone (obviously)
  • clear system caches
  • reset network settings 

Short of a complete wipe and reset, any idea what could be going on? 

 

Thanks

Update on this thread:

I wasn't able to get a solution from samsung, airalo, or yesim. As a longshot i was hoping the oneui 6.1 update might have a fix baked in, but no such luck. 

I ended up doing a factory reset and now everything with the eSIM returned to normal. Good luck!

I'd be checking in with Verizon if I were you. your Airalo purchase made me wonder if you might be in the wrong forum for Samsung community support.

you might be in the wrong forum for Samsung community support. 

I'm seeing the same behavior in the system SIM Manager as I am in airalo. And that's months after i was able to add an eSIM.

all I know is that my SIM Manager in my S22U (unlocked) behaves differently with AT&T vs when I was with TMO...what's allowed/not allowed. that's why I suggested you checking in with VZW. You bought the phone from them.

Have you tried removing all esim first then try installing a new one. Is the esim you are trying to install a new one. If not try a new esim

Have you tried removing all esim first then try installing a new one. Is the esim you are trying to install a new one. If not try a new esim

That doesn't help; the SIM  manager doesn't list any esims installed, so there's nothing to remove. I recently got a new esim issued from airalo, but the behavior is still there. 

I got a little ambitious and started to look at system logs. the output of `adb logcat` is definitely a little verbose to make sense of without filtering, so i tried searching for all events related to "esim" by running

 

$ adb logcat | grep -i esim

Okay, so first I launched the SIM manager, and this is the logging that was output.

At which point the screen changes and gives me a list of network providers to choose from, or the option to add an esim manually with a QR code (which i tried, and which airalo gave me). Unfortunately, adding with a QR code also times out after two minutes, after changing its state to EID_SEARCHING. 

At this point, the logging statements aren't being picked up with any google searches, so I'm sort of stuck as I've reached the end of my knowledge as to what android is doing under the hood :shrug:

I had the same issue. Took the same actions that you did but it was still hanging.

Eventually what worked for me was turning off all the "lock esim settings"...Samsung s23

Travel eSIMs like Airalo do not work correctly on US variants. This is because one primary SIM must be used for all three functions (calls, texts, and cellular data).
