Yeah, someone with an ATT device said that. But I wonder if they saw the MEID, which is also listed, and confused it with a second IMEI.

This is what the label on my box looked like.
that someone might be me. ;). My box definitely lists 2 IMEI's; however, *#06# only lists the first IMEI. as an FYI, i purchased my ATT Note20 Ultra from Samsung.

Whoa. Cool! Now I wonder if the Unlocked US model has a second IMEI that's just not listed.

I may have to call T-Mo to see if they can activate the eSIM on mine, then I have a SIM from a secondary line I could stick in. Hmmmm...

As an Exynos owner, I can confirm that as well as having two IMEIs on the box, I also see two IMEIs when I dial *#06#.

It looks like they disable the eSIM on those US devices.

T-Mobile is supposedly looking into it right now for me. At first they said the Note 20 Ultra doesn't support eSIM for TMo, but they are double checking now.

If they tell you no, then they are telling people different things.

I was told they support the eSIM.

Well, bad news. My phone doesn't have an EID.

If you look at an actual SIM card, there's a 32-digit number on it. Well, an eSIM has the same number, but it's found somewhere in settings and is called an EID or eSIM Identification Number.

There is no where in settings where I can find this number. If someone can figure out how to find it let me know. Without it, T-Mobile can not activate the eSIM.

i just returned from an att store and they said i should be able to activate the eSIM using the Sim Toolkit App (by scanning a QR code on an eSIM card they gave me). like others have said, i can see the app, but cannot launch it. ugh!!

For me (Exynos) it's Settings > About phone > Status > and it's the third item in the list, under IMEI information.

It looks like eSIMis totally disabled on your devices. Not sure why and how/if it can be re-enabled.

Are you sure the EID and IMEI are not the same? My phone shows EID right over top IMEI and the number.

Hmm, wonder why my phone shows EID over both IMEI numbers then.

The world is a mystery I guess.

I think it's because you have no EID, it's blank, and has nothing next to it. It just looks like it's showing as the same as your IMEI. If it had one, it would be between the EID text and the IMEI text.

    Ok. I reset my phone back to stock, took notes.
    I'm on 986u1. Android 10 ui2.5 magisk patched.

    Remove your simcard before you flash your phone. You don't want it to pick a carrier yet.

    Start with root folder. Vendor. Default.prop
    Change active sim from 1 to 2
    And ss to dsds

    Go next into optics. Go into wwd carrier , customer.xml scroll down and change esim from false to true
    Go into network.xml and add the same line csc feature ril support esim true.......

    Change any other settings you wish to activate like real time net speed call recording etc...

    Next find your carriers folder and copy the omc and any other files except customer.xml and network.xml , move those into wwd folder but rename the ones already in there or delete them which ever you want to do

    Next. Rename the folder of your carrier to anything you want. Then rename the wwd folder to the name of your carrier. In my case I'm t-mobile. So the tmb I names to t1 and wwd to TMB.
    Go to prison and swap names of folders in same fashion

    Go into where your modem firmware and in oem file change xxxxxxxxxx....la/ss....to xxxxxx./dsds/...


    Then go into imei folder and set the carrier from xaa to whatever it you use

    Thats quick and dirty of it.

    Power off phone after you modify files. Insert sim card and power back on,

    After it loads you should now have sim manager under connection settings, when you first boot it will ask you to search for mobile plan

    eSIM is CSC feature, In case it is disable then two possibilities to enable
    1.If device is non rooted - Try changing one of available CSC that have it enabled
    2.In case device is rooted you need a line to add/edit below line

    Code:
    <CscFeature_RIL_SupportEsim>TRUE</CscFeature_RIL_SupportEsim>

    You have to go into root into your optics prism and what ever your service provider is rename that folder to anything. Then go into the wwd folder. It's,only xmls that are written in plain English. Change settings you need. Then rename the wwd folder to same name as your service provider so when it loads it loads the renamed wwd folder. The other option is to swap files from wwd to your carriers folder. This is easiest way to edit as it's all English.
    For 986u1 go to build.props change Sim count to 2, then multi Sim option from ss to dsds

    Go to modem firmware, image modem hw,
    Copy same text as ss but change ss to dsds then link it to multi image mbn hw.bin

    Reboot phone. You get pop up as soon as phone boots into os after you put in your pin asking if you want to search for your new mobile plan or scan qr code for it

    I have tried thousands of different things. Brick phone. Lost radio. I just played and played with settings files folders etc...
