An eSIM is a SIM-card that is installed in the cell phone. The SIM stores all data that is important to recognize and verify the portable mobile network. An eSIM will come as a coordinated SIM chip that can't and require not to be expelled from a gadget. The eSIM is at times called an eUICC (embedded Inserted Universal Circuit Card). The data on the eSIM will be agreeable and rewritable by all administrators. Another SIM will never again be required.

To activate the eSim, you just need to contact the mobile carrier you desired to use. Makers and administrators would now be able to empower customers to choose their preferred administrator and afterward safely download that administrator's SIM application to any gadget.

eSIM now enables users to store numerous administrator profiles on a gadget all the while, and switch between them remotely, however just a single can be utilized at once.

We are sorry to inform you that the services of eSim are not available in Nepal. As new smartphones are welcoming the concept the eSim, we request the Telecommunication providers in Nepal to provide the service. As we recently witnessed the fact that Chaudhary Group is going to launch CG telecom in Nepal and CG Telecom had a collab with Huawei for 4G services. Nepal Telecom, Ncell, SmartCell has already conquered the Nepali market. So, CG Telecom must come up with something new in the nation to get users attraction. Hope they will consider providing the service of eSim for the first time in Nepal.
