ESIM - Ufone 4G

What is eSIM?

eSIM is a digital SIM embedded in your phone that allows you to activate a mobile number without using a physical SIM.


With an eSIM, you can accommodate multiple phone numbers, which you can add, delete and configure right from your phone’s settings. In contrast, a physical SIM needs to be physically removed and replaced.
For example, you will now be able to switch between private and business numbers in one phone without physically swapping the SIM cards.


The price of Ufone 4G esim is Rs. 2,000 for both new customers and those customers who want to switch their physical Ufone 4G sim to esim.
