Basically, an eSIM (or virtual SIM card) is a digital SIM card built into the hardware of a smartphone. That is, it is made inside the cell phone itself, so you do not need to insert any SIM card to use the phone line or change carriers. This new virtual SIM was launched in early 2019, and over the past three years, several mobile phone manufacturers such as Apple, Samsung and Motorola and communications companies have begun implementing this mechanism, whether in their smartphones or data services.

Currently, 1.2 billion telephone lines use this standard in their devices. The idea is to provide more convenience in terms of portability and security. Since the eSIM cannot be removed, the data connection is not interrupted, as is the case with traditional SIM cards, when you remove it or make poor contact. This is a great opportunity to find a smartphone in case it is lost or stolen.

operators Purely, TIM as well as Alive are already offering this new service. And everyone has their own process for enabling this technology or data package for the user. Since we are still not used to this standard here in Brazil, eSIM is still available on a few smartphones – mostly high-end models. So manufacturers are making this option available while still keeping access to the physical chip, which remains the most popular feature and is unlikely to disappear anytime soon.
