The benefits of using an eSIM compatible device

  • eSIMs make it easier to manage multiple profiles and numbers through one phone, meaning there’s no need to carry a second phone for business/personal use.
  • They take up less space inside a device, allowing for better design decisions – such as bigger batteries, for longer battery life.
  • Using an eSIM means you can switch between networks with the push of a button – perfect for traveling.
  • It’s predicted that in the not too distant future many devices will be eSIM only.
  • Because eSIMs can be managed remotely, it’s easier to protect your phone in the event of loss or theft.
  • If you’ve purchased an eSIM online you can activate it instantly, without having to wait for a delivery or find a physical store to collect your card.
  • eSIMs can be deleted from one device and reactivated on another, without worry of losing or damaging a physical SIM card during transfer.
