Transition from regular sim to e-sim
Transit to e-sim
- An eSIM is a digital version of the physical SIM card—identifying your device virtually to provide network connection.
- It’s programmable remotely via software and is built into newer smartphones, meaning you wouldn’t have to go purchase a new SIM card if you wanted to swap phones or wireless carriers.
- eSIMs are used in tablets, smart watches, drones, and even cars. They’re basically space-saving gamechangers for connectivity.
Usability of e-Sim
- Flexibility: As e-sims are embedded in devices and are programmable remotely, it can open a whole new world of flexibility when it comes to managing your phone and service plans.
- High portability: You can add plans, add a new number, and even connect to a different carrier. For example, you can test out T-Mobile’s network for FREE before you switch, while still keeping your current phone number and carrier.
Benefits of e-sim:
- Single devise: This saves you money because with eSIM, you don’t need two separate devices.
- Update wireless service remotely: Small, medium, and large businesses can benefit from eSIMs, as they make it possible to change or update wireless service remotely on multiple lines at once—whether you have five employees or five thousand.
- International benefits: eSIMs let you easily add an international plan to your device that starts working the moment you arrive in another country, giving you hassle-free flexibility.
- Try network before porting: The biggest benefit of using eSIM is that you can try the network free for three months before you switch.
