Introducing O2 eSIM

Feb 4, 2021|Technology




We're excited to now offer eSIM's on O2 to our existing and new customers.


What is an eSIM?

An eSIM is a virtual SIM that’s digitally embedded in a phone and stores the data needed for the phone to connect to the O2 network. It’s similar to a traditional plastic SIM, but removes the need to put a physical SIM into the phone.

O2 have said they think that most customers will be happier using the plastic SIM card they are already familiar with, so will continue to offer regular plastic SIM cards but also provide eSIM packs for customers who request one.


Some benefits of eSIM are:

·         Can hold multiple eSIM profiles on the same eSIM

·         Reduced space within the phone

·         Can reduce SIM card manufacturing and distribution costs


What does this mean for you?

O2 eSIM allows you to:

·         Use one number for business and one for personal calls on the same device

·         Add a local data plan when travelling abroad

·         Have separate Voice and Data plans
