SOLUTION: Apple iPad Pro (11" and 12.9") Activating After Device Setup and Off-Device Activation



Users that turn-on and go through set-up on their 2018 iPad Pro prior to activating either by calling Care, through a Retail location, or via Web, will need to perform a power cycle and access the Cellular Data menu to trigger the eSIM download. This will allow the device to fully provision.


Note: Users that activate via on-device flow will not need to do this as the download of the eSIM will occur automatically.





If a user goes through out-of-box setup and then has their device activated via an off-device flow (through Care, Retail, Web), the user will need to:

  1. Powercyle the device (Turn off/on iPad)
  2. Trigger eSIM download by going to Settings > Cellular Data
  3. Device will now be provisioned for data


Users can check device is provisioned for data by:

  • Going to Settings > Cellular Data > look for a “Sprint – Data Plan”, or…
  • By swiping down from the upper right-hand corner and looking for “Sprint LTE” in the header
