How do I switch between Red Pocket's networks?

One of the great things about Red Pocket Mobile is that you can change networks if you need to improve your coverage, have a new device, or are just trying to find the right fit for you. We do our best to make this unique Red Pocket Mobile benefit easy!

There are two ways to switch networks:

1. Use our CoveageGenius tool to easily switch your eSIM from one network to another (or switch from a physical SIM to an eSIM of a different network) while keeping your number functional. This is the fastest way to swap your network and best for eSIM compatible phones. 


2. Purchase a replacement physical SIM card online and contact us to switch the line to the new SIM. This is best for switching from one physical SIM to another physical SIM card.
