What is an eSIM?

An eSIM is a digital SIM that allows you to activate a mobile phone plan from Globe without having to use a physical nano-SIM.

Devices that are eSIM-supported already have the SIM embedded into the device. This SIM is ready to be activated by Globe based on the configuration of the mobile device. Depending on what the device can support, users may add multiple profiles or mobile numbers, which can be used one at a time.

As of 2018, only a few carriers across 10 countries support eSIM, and Globe is the first to make this available in the Philippines.
