eSIM available now at Ooredoo Oman!

What are the benefits of the eSIM?

Ooredoo will offer a fully digitised user experience when subscribing to the eSIM

You’ll be able to switch between your personal and business number with ease - no need to physically swap cards in your phone! So say goodbye to cutting SIM cards to suit the size of the slot in your device or finding a SIM adaptor.

Plus, you can now have two mobile plans, which means:

  • One number for business and another number for personal use – or two personal numbers – you choose.
  • You can have separate voice and data plans with Ooredoo.

The eSIM will play a major role in the Internet of Things (IoT), as the technology is expected to be embedded in cars, drones, home appliances and more. You’ll have a fully ‘smart’ life in the not-too-distant future.
