3 Things To Keep in Mind About eSIM

Remember the days when you wanted to switch your wireless phone service and you had to visit a store or call an agent to order a new SIM card? SIM cards connect your phone to a carrier's network. And up until now, SIM cards have been a physical thing you put in the phone.

But newer devices are being built with an embedded SIM card in the body of the device (where we get the name, embedded SIM or eSIM). eSIM uses this built-in technology, providing a convenient way people can switch providers and activate service without having to receive a physical SIM card.

eSIM can save time by letting consumers activate Visible service in as little as 15 minutes. This makes it easier than ever to try, add or switch to Visible, powered by Verizon.  And to boot, Visible is a wireless service with unlimited data, messages and minutes, and no annual contracts or surprise fees.
