What’s an eSIM?

An eSIM is a tiny chip that’s already installed in your device. During set up, you load your SIM profile onto it by connecting to the internet.

  • You don’t need to use a physical SIM
  • You can change provider without ordering a new physical SIM
  • Only available for Vodafone Pay monthly customers with a compatible device
