What is an eSIM card? what are the features of eSIM?

Introduction

An e-SIM card is a SIM card that is embedded in a device and can connect you to any operator offering eSIM services. The advantage of having an e-SIM card is that it makes your device more secure and provides added convenience during usage.

What are the advantages of using an e-SIM?

E-SIMs are more convenient. They can be used with any operator, even those not listed on their website. E-SIMs are cheaper and offer better security than traditional SIMs: they don’t need to be registered in any way and don’t contain any personal data like your name or address; they’re just numbers that you generate using the information provided by your phone’s manufacturer (e.g., Apple).

E-SIMs also have some other advantages over traditional SIMs: they’re smaller, lighter, and easier to carry around (you’ll probably want one of these if you travel frequently).

How do I subscribe to an e-SIM service?

If you want to purchase an e-SIM, you should contact the service provider directly. You will need to provide them with your name, address, and email address.

You can download the profile from the website of your chosen service provider. Once downloaded, open it in Adobe Reader or another PDF viewer software and follow instructions on how to install it onto your device by following specific steps for each operating system (Mac OS X 10.9 Mavericks; iOS 8; Windows 7).

When installing an e-SIM profile on a smartphone or tablet with no SIM card slot installed yet (e.g., Android smartphones), follow these steps:

  • Connect your device via USB cable

Can I migrate my current mobile number to an e-SIM?

The e-SIM does not require you to change your mobile number. You can keep the same one, or choose from a range of other numbers that are already in use.

You can also use the same SIM card in all your devices—whether they are phones, tablets or laptops.

Where can I find more information about e-SIM service?

You can find more information about e-SIM service on your operator’s website. In addition, the GSMA website has an extensive FAQ section that provides answers to frequently asked questions and a section with news articles related to eSims. The eSIM Association also offers an extensive library of articles covering all aspects of the technology, including how it works in theory and practice.
