To explain it simply, the eSIM eliminates the need to carry about a chain of SIM cards in a wallet or pocket. Users can access cellular networks without using a physical SIM card in their phone. The cellular plans can instead be remotely activated on an eSIM.

Who Is Offering It in Pakistan?

In Pakistan, Jazz and Ufone have currently made eSIM technology available to their customers. Reports suggest that other carriers may soon follow suit. While Ufone began offering eSIM support in February 2021, Jazz first announced its support for eSIM activation in 2019. Among the supported smartphones are the Apple iPhone XS, XS Max, XR, Google Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL.
