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 expected to use ’em by 2022. 


This game-changing technology means it’s never been easier to swap phones, switch phone providers, or change/add mobile coverage — all with the tap of your finger. Travelers are able to hang onto their original phone number while also adding local numbers in the countries they visit — saving big bucks on roaming charges — and there’s no need to wait in cell kiosk lineups or suffer through in-person tech support! (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.
