Bellevue, Washington – August 28, 2019 – T-Mobile today announced expanded support for embedded SIM (eSIM), which is basically just a physical SIM card gone digital. Last year, the Un-carrier launched eSIM on prepaid plans, and starting August 28, customers can light up an eSIM with a T-Mobile postpaid plan -- something Un-carrier customers have asked for – to open new ways of using an eSIM-equipped device by adding a second line on the same device.
eSIM is great for people who want to use both work and personal numbers on a single smartphone, set up a phone with an international carrier for extended stays outside the U.S. or just get rid of that physical SIM card. Plus, AT&T, Sprint and Verizon customers can get T-Mobile on their existing smartphone. How cool is that?
To activate, customers with an eligible eSIM-capable smartphone can visit a T-Mobile store nationwide starting August 28. For more information, go here: https://support.t-mobile.com/docs/DOC-40796.
