eSIM (virtual SIM) is the new technology with which you can connect to the mobile network using a compatible GSM device, without the need for a physical SIM card, just by installing the eSIM profile on your compatible phone. The SIM is always in your phone, it comes directly installed, so you don't have to use dedicated tools to operate the SIM slot. eSIM allows you to install multiple phone numbers in a single mobile device and activate the one you need.
How to activate eSIM on your Smartphone or Tablet
1. Make sure your phone or tablet is compatible with eSIM technology, is connected to WiFi, and has a valid eSIM activation code.
2. Access the eSIM section of the mobile connection settings of your eSIM compatible device.
3. Scan the QR code on the phone's camera to activate the installation of the eSIM profile. The QR code can be received by Email from the provider of your mobile network.
4. Follow the instructions on the screen. You will receive a confirmation SMS after successfully installing the eSIM.
You can also enable eSIM on compatible smartwatches by activating the Number Share option. This allows you to use the same phone number on your smartwatch as the one on your smartphone.
