Activate Apple subscriptions from your wireless carrier

If your wireless carrier plan includes a subscription to an Apple service, link your Apple ID and phone number to activate your subscription.

How to activate an Apple subscription

  1. Your carrier will send you a text message with a link to activate your subscription.
  2. Open the text message and tap the link.
  3. Follow the onscreen steps to sign in with your Apple ID and link your phone number. If you see a message that says "This subscription is already being used with a different Apple ID," contact Apple Support to unlink your Apple ID.
    If you have a Dual SIM phone, you can activate your Apple subscription on your default line.

If you already have a subscription to Apple Music

If you're subscribed to Apple Music through Apple and your wireless carrier, cancel one of your subscriptions. You can cancel your subscription from Apple. Or you can cancel your subscription through your wireless carrier.

Subscriptions to Apple services are offered through some wireless carriers, and available only in certain countries and regions. Contact your wireless carrier for more information.
