Re: What is esim

An eSim is a software token that replaces your physical sim card.

Only get one if you don't switch devices often, and your phone takes an eSim.

If you don't know what one is, you don't need one.

That's a bit of a silly thing to say? I was only asking because I saw it on my mobile account and just wanted to know and after reading the Forbes article, I realized that I have seen it on Click.

Re: What is esim

The advantage of an eSIM for me is that I have a dual SIM phone. However, if I want to have an SD card to expand memory it uses one of the SIM slots. With an eSIM a slot is freed up and I can run dual SIM and have the extra memory.

I've been eSIM with Vodafone since the beginning of the year.
