Is my phone eSIM compatible?

Tech-savvy people are loving the freedom that comes with eSIM technology, otherwise known as embedded SIM — a software-based version of a traditional chip-style SIM card. In fact, more than half of all mobile devices are already using eSIM.

This game-changing technology means it’s never been easier to change/add mobile coverage and have an internet connection anywhere you travel — all with the tap of your finger, and without needing Wi-Fi.

Travellers are able to call and text on their regular phone number while visiting another country, all while relying on prepaid eSIM data package to provide their phone with data — saving big bucks on roaming charges or expensive carrier travel plans.

There’s also no need to wait in cell kiosk lineups or hunt for a SIM once you arrive at a destination. You can have your eSIM installed and ready to go before your trip, and then immediately connect to a local network once you arrive in a new country.

(eSIMs are also waaaaay better for the environment, saving millions of plastic SIM cards from winding up in landfills all over the world.)

The convenience of eSIM means everyone is suddenly wondering whether or not their phones are eSIM compatible. But wait — there’s no need to try to pry open your device and see if there’s an old-school SIM card inside or not. We’ve saved you the trouble and made a list, ’cause we’re friendly that way.

And you know what? It’s a huge list.

iPhones and Androids and Samsungs, oh my!
