What is an eSIM?

An eSIM is an embedded SIM card that lives inside your device.

It's a small chip which can be programmed to work with any network that supports eSIMs, and unlike a normal SIM it can't be physically removed.

You can have plans from more than one network stored on your eSIM, but you'll only be able to enable one at a time.
