What is an eSIM?

An eSIM is a virtual SIM that can be downloaded directly into your phone. It connects some newer devices to the GSMA network.

Why use an eSIM?

eSIM gives you greater flexibility to manage your wireless plan.

  • Download your eSIM instantly and activate it in minutes, no waiting for a physical SIM card to arrive in the mail.
  • Most eSIM compatible phones are dual SIM, which means they can support more than one phone number at a time.
  • With newer eSIM compatible iPhones, you can have up to 20 different phone lines on the same device!

How do I get an eSIM?

GSMA iPhone purchases automatically come with an eSIM, no action required. For monthly plans, visit redpocket.com/plans and for annual plans visit redpocket.com/annual. Select eSIM as your delivery method at checkout and we’ll guide you through the rest.

Already an eSIM user?

When you purchase a new plan, and get a new eSIM, you’ll be able to quickly and easily replace the
eSIM profile that is currently on your phone with your new Red Pocket Mobile eSIM profile. Note that
you must activate your new eSIM and transfer your phone number over to your new Red Pocket
Mobile line.

Will my phone work with eSIM?

Phones must be carrier unlocked to work with eSIM. If you’re using a dual SIM phone, you can use eSIM as your only cellular plan or you may use a physical SIM card for your first cellular plan and eSIM as the second.
