As opposed to a traditional sim card, an eSIM is a small chip embedded in your device that can read any virtual SIMs and use them like how you would use a physical SIM.
Sounds complicated? It’s not. In fact it makes your life as use much simpler and easier. Here’s how:
1. Use multiple networks
An eSIM has the capacity of storing about 5 virtual sim cards which allows you to have more than one sim card in your phone. With this feature, you can easily switch between networks if you find yourself in an area where you aren’t getting signals. How cool is that?
2. You cannot lose an eSIM
Oftentimes, when you’re traveling or changing the sim card in your device, you tend to lose your physical sim card or drop it somewhere. The tiny piece becomes hard to find. As opposed to the physical sim card, you cannot lose an eSIM. You do not have to worry about taking care of a small piece of plastic when it’s already embedded in your device.
3. Your phone is secured
In the event that you lose your phone to theft, criminals cannot pull out your sim card and throw it away since an eSIM is already embedded in your device. This allows the users to track the phone and retain your data.
4. An eSIM doesn’t take up much space
The software itself doesn’t take a lot of internal storage and with zero physical storage, phone manufacturers have the potential of creating more innovative designs with the phone and use the space to bring forth more features like increased battery life or expand the screen.
5. An eSIM provides more functionality
With more than one option of having sim cards on your devices, an eSIM allows you to keep your work contacts separate and personal contacts separate. Apart from this, it is also cost-effective as it doesn’t need any added roaming charges to make and receive calls, text, and use data. It can be attached with any local service provider and you are good to go!
Since it is a new technology and work on it is still underway, at US Mobile we offer eSIMs for international data roaming only; with service in up to more than 140 countries based on your region. So what are you waiting for?
