Discover eSIM

What’s an eSIM?

An eSIM is a tiny chip that’s already installed in your device. Vodafone Pay monthly customers can enjoy the flexibility of an eSIM on a number of compatible devices.

  • Change providers without needing to order a physical SIM
  • Dual SIM phones can support the use of two numbers with both a physical SIM and an eSIM
  • Share your eSIM plan across multiple devices with OneNumber

Is your device eSIM compatible?

Check out the list of eSIM-compatible devices. If you want to share your eSIM plan across a number of devices, you’ll need a phone to act as your main (primary) device. Then you can share your plan with secondary devices, like your smartwatch and Echo & Alexa device.
