Most convenient activation 

Other than that, you don’t need a steady hand to insert a SIM card, nor do you need to visit a store. Just scanning the QR code online or, in some cases, entering a PIN will lead to eSIM activation. 

eSIMs are like a digital upgrade to our remote lives. 

It has some cons if we discuss it. 

  • Easily tracked by network providers, a privacy breach can happen, which isn’t possible in the case of a physical SIM card since we can tuck it out. 
  • Furthermore, since it is non-transferrable, retrieval, data transfer, and eSIM profile recovery can be time-consuming in case of phone damage.

  • Firstly, make sure that WiFi or data is available throughout the procedure.
  • Find your device’s settings and tap “Cellular.”
