What is eSIM | How to Activate eSIM

HI FRIENDS,

eSIM or Embedded Subscriber Identity Module, as the name suggests, is embedded directly into your smartphone or any device in place of or along with your physical SIM card.

Not only does it save space in a device as manufacturers do not have to add a tray or slot for a physical SIM and can use that space for something else, it enables remote SIM provisioning of any mobile device.

If in case of any changes that may require removing or changing a SIM when moving to a different circle, switching telecom operators, or others can be done remotely by the mobile operator.

In India Jio, Vi, and Airtel offer the ability to convert your physical SIM to eSIM for devices that support it.

An eSIM can be downloaded only to a compatible smartphone and for now, only Apple, Google, Samsung and Motorola offer phones that support eSIM functionality in India.
