Little by little, the eSIM advances, Telefónica Deutschland has something to announce. This month, Telefónica will offer the so-called “embedded SIM” for all contractual customers of the O2, Blau and Ay Yildiz brands. This is like a virtual SIM card. Later this month, the company plans to offer another product, the Samsung Galaxy Watch LTE, which can be equipped with an eSIM.

At the same time, we also want to inform you that from this moment Telefónica Deutschland will offer the eSIM for all contractual clients of the o2 brands (for private clients and companies), Blau and Ay Yildiz.

There are two options for switching to eSIM:

  • The existing classic SIM card is exchanged for an eSIM.
  • The customer requests an additional classic SIM card and exchanges it for an eSIM.

The eSIM can be ordered through all channels: for the o2 brand through Mein o2, the Mein o2 app, in o2 stores or on the hotline, the same applies to other brands. The exchange of a classic SIM card for an eSIM is free. Customers can use our trained colleagues’ O2 Store Onsite Service to install eSIM on their device.

It will eventually replace the classic SIM card

First of all, eSIM is interesting for devices that are used more informally. Smart watches, for example. But eSIM is also interesting for smartphones, and in the future it may even be a widespread replacement for classic SIM cards.

For example, the current Google Pixel 3 can handle the eSIM. Unfortunately it does not support dual SIM in combination with eSIM and physical SIM card.
