There’s currently a flaw in the Pandora app that doesn’t allow active T-Mobile customers to redeem the ad-free weekends promo if they are using eSIM on TMo with a physical SIM on another carrier.
ex: My primary line is T-Mobile, but it’s on eSIM because my secondary work line is Spectrum Mobile. With this setup, I get the error “This offer is only available to T-Mobile subscribers”. Even after removing the Spectrum SIM from the phone, the same error exists.
To resolve this issue, I can insert an inactive T-Mobile physical SIM in the phone along with my eSIM, and the offer activates with no issues. As soon as I place ANY other non T-Mobile physical SIM in the phone whether active or inactive, the offer no longer works.
Anyone else experiencing these issues?

@solodogg This offer is only available to T-Mobile, Sprint, and Metro customers.
Other carriers are not eligible for the offer at this time, which is why your Spectrum SIM is not being accepted.
If you'd like to take advantage of this offer, you'll need to make sure you are using a valid T-Mobile SIM.
Hope this helps!
Adam, if you will re-read my initial comment, you will see that I AM a T-Mobile customer. My iPhone is using dual SIM capabilities, with T-Mobile being primary on eSIM and Spectrum secondary on physical SIM.
This is a flaw in the algorithm for validating service. When I can login to the T-Mobile Tuesday’s app using their network with my mobile number, but your app fails checks because it’s not a physical SIM card, that’s a problem.
@solodogg Can you please confirm with me what type of Dual SIM card you are using?
From my understanding, there are three types:
Let me know.
Dual SIM dual active, the only type supported in the iPhone 12.
Both SIMs are active at all times, but only the physical SIM is being registered in the Pandora app for authentication purposes. As I stated previously, I can insert a dead T-Mobile SIM in the physical slot and the promo will activate with no issues.
Thank you for your feedback, @solodogg.
I have passed that information along to the team in charge of this promotion.
This being said, our support team did mention that you have already been in contact with them regarding this promotion.
If you have any additional feedback, you can reply back directly to the last email they sent you.
Thanks for being a part of the Community!
The last email they sent basically said they had no way to fix it. I guess that’s acceptable? There’s a flaw in the software and the promotion doesn’t apply because of it, and the solution is “I’m sorry, we can’t fix that”????
I didn’t miss the email, it only addressed 3 months worth of service. I am still ineligible for the promo as listed due to a flaw in the software, and I am sure many others are experiencing this as well. The validation method on the app needs to be fixed.
It can’t be fixed until the app is updated on their end. All this time later and Pandora still hasn’t fixed the API’s the app uses to identify which carrier you’re using. Opening tickets does nothing when the information isn’t sent back to the dev team to correct the issue.
