ESIM

The eSIM technology is being provided online for the first time in Jordan, allowing customers to enjoy the latest and greatest technologies without having to visit a physical shop.

eSIM

Embedded SIM, or eSIM, is a technology that enables you to activate postpaid and prepaid plans without the use of a traditional, physical SIM. With an eSIM, you can accommodate multiple phone numbers, which you can add and configure right from your phone's settings. In contrast, a physical SIM needs to be removed and replaced. This makes e-SIM ideal for switching between different lines on a single device, such as personal and business numbers, without physically swapping SIM cards.


Advantages of eSIM:
  • Using multiple lines (for example, one number for work and another one for personal calls).
  • Having two or more numbers on the same device.

Difference between the eSIM and the traditional SIM

eSIM is a virtual technology that is embedded within the device (but can also be changed or disconnected). You will receive a QR Code that that needs to be scanned into your device in order to download the eSIM settings to the device being used (mobile, tablet, or other device that supports the technology). Meanwhile, traditional SIM cards are physically removable and replaceable.
