eSIM («e» comes from ‘embedded’) is a new type of SIM card, which is embedded in our eSIM compatible device (Smartphone or Tablet). It is initially empty without any network settings to be pre- installed.

To replace an eSIM you can visit a Primetel store. The activation of an eSIM is done easily by scanning a QR code.

More than one eSIM profiles can be supported. The number of the supported eSIM profiles may vary according to the device’s specifications (usually one or two).
