How Does an eSIM Work?
eSIMs work like ping-pong. A user sends their phone number to the mobile service provider and requests that the provider submit that number to their system. That number is then sent to the provider’s server, where it is held until the mobile service provider asks for it.
Type of eSIMs (formerly called e-SIMs)
There are different types of eSIMs available:
- Unlog-in eSIM (Unlg eSIM) – This offers no log-in or submission process.
- Easy-to-use eSIM (EQUI eSIM) – This has an easy-to-use interface that makes the process of submitting their phone number simple.
- Real-time eSIM (RT eSIM) – This is really useful when the performance of the network changes. In this case, the user is required to re-submit their number and wait for the new connection to start.
How to register for an eSIM
Before you can use an eSIM, you need to register with the service provider. This is done through the mobile app and can be done directly from the owner’s device. Once you have registered with the service provider, you can use the number as if it were a traditional phone number. The provider will then prompt you for your address and telephone number, and you can make payments with the number.
- Tracking phone usage. eSIM tracks your phone usage, including how often you use the app, the number of times you make a payment, and the duration of your call.
- Making payments for services. You can make payments with the number, and the provider will charge you the amount.
- Providing information. You can provide the service provider with information including your contact info, payment method, and the duration of your call.
- Verifying information. The service provider must verify the information you provided to ensure that you are the person who is speaking to them.
What is the Verification Process for an eSIM?
Once you have registered with the service provider, the service provider performs a series of activities that require the user to sign a contract. These activities include:
- Being granted a user access token.
- Being authenticated with the service provider.
- Receiving payment for services.
- Verifying information.
How to Participate in an eSIM Program
- Register for an account with the service provider. This is only needed if you want to use the service in your own name.
- Set a personal identifier. Put this in your user name and password, if you choose to keep it secret.
- Create an account. You can sign up for an account with different service providers, but this is the best way to get started.
eSIM roaming benefits for prepaid users
If you are using a prepaid SIM card and want to use it in another country, you can use the same card. All you need to do is insert it into a device that supports eSIMs.
If you are using a postpaid SIM card and want to use it in another country, then you need to activate the e-SIM feature on your phone. This is done by sending an SMS to the service provider. You can use either a mobile number or an email address for this.
You will get an SMS message with instructions for activating the e-SIM feature on your phone. The activation process does not take more than 15 minutes and can be done from any device that supports SMS messages.
After activating the service, you will be able to use your postpaid SIM card anywhere in the world where there is coverage by that network provider’s network access point (NAP).
How to Track your eSIM Usage
- Identify your device. This includes the chipset, memory, and Processor.
- Look for Over-the-Top (OT) storage. Over-the-Top storage is not available on the regular phone, but it is available on the latest devices.
- Look for applications that use the number as their primary feature.
- Identify the number used in the applications.
- Look for other ways to track usage.
Is e-SIM Available in Prepaid and Postpaid?
There are two types of SIM cards. The prepaid card is the most common type, and the postpaid card is more expensive. The postpaid cards are available in two versions: eSIM and non-eSIM.
eSIM cards are a special type of SIM card that is delivered to your device at no extra cost. They come with an integrated chip that can be used as a regular SIM card, but also as an e-SIM card. This means that you don’t need to buy an additional e-SIM adapter to use them as a regular SIM card. All you need to do is insert it into the correct slot on your phone, and you will have access to all the features of an e-SIM card.
The value of a typical e-SIM can range from $5 to $30 per month. The price depends on the features offered by the service provider, and how many services they offer through their network access point (NAP).
If you are interested in using an e-SIM card, make sure that the service provider participates in the program by signing a contract with the service provider.
Non-eSIM cards are delivered to your device at no extra cost. They come with a pin code that needs to be entered on your device. This means that you will need to buy an additional pin code adapter if you want to use these cards as a regular SIM card.
If you are interested in using non-eSIM cards, make sure that the service provider participates in the program by signing a contract with the service provider.
Which Services Can Be Used Through eSIM?
Services may vary between providers and depend on each user’s individual needs. For instance, some service providers offer a wide range of services through their network access point (NAP), while others limit the number of services that can be used through their NAP.
