The embedded SIM or eSIM is a technology that enables you to activate postpaid and prepaid plans without the use of normal physical SIM.
It’s a digital SIM that’s loaded into your phone through a QR code that allows you to connect to the network without the need for a traditional physical SIM card.
This service also allows you to use more than one number at the same time without having to switch between the Digital SIM cards. With this technology, you can forget about physical SIMs, and it’ll be easier for you to move between your number and your business number. Your device needs to be compatible with eSIM.
Advantages of eSIM:
- Use of one number for work and another one for personal calls.
- Having two or more numbers on the same device.
