An eSIM is a virtual SIM that allows customers to access prepaid mobile services without the need to buy a physical SIM card. Customers can simply scan a QR code using their eSIM-compatible smartphone and register their new mobile number online.
The Smart Prepaid eSIM is priced at P99 and comes with 21GB of data, plus free calls and texts to all networks for seven days. To activate the eSIM, scan the eSIM QR code and register your mobile number at smart.com.ph/simreg.
Subscribers who successfully activate and register their eSIMs will get 5GB of free data. While those who download the GigaLife App will get an additional 16GB of free data.
Apple users can go to their iPhone’s Settings, choose Cellular, and then select Add Cellular Plan. This will then open the camera so they can scan the QR Code of their Smart Prepaid eSIM. Users can view their eSIM listed under Cellular Plans.
Android users, on the other hand, can go to Settings, then SIM Card Manager, select Add Mobile Plan, and tap Add using the QR Code. This will again open the camera and prompt you to scan the QR Code. Users can view their listed eSIM under SIM Card Manager.
The Smart Prepaid eSIM is now available in major airports, Smart Stores nationwide, accredited retailers, the Smart Online Store, and Smart flagship stores on Lazada and Shopee.
It is only compatible with devices that support eSIM technology, such as the iPhone 14, 13, 12, and 11 Series, the Galaxy Z Series, the Samsung Galaxy S21 Series, and the Galaxy Note 20 Series, among others.
