eSims from O2 – the end of sim cards

eSIM is a small chip which is physically built into some of the latest mobile devices. O2 eSIM removes the need to physically purchase, insert and swap out a SIM card.

eSIM is compatible with any O2 tariff. Check out our O2 Business Sim Deals. Here are a few mobile phones that are able to use O2 eSIM functionality :

Apple iPhone XR and XS, 11 and 12

We expect most mobile phones from 2021 will have an eSIM on board, traditional sim cards will become redundant.

O2 eSim offers a simple activation process.
