Businessman Strive Masiyiwa’s telecommunications and technology company
Econet Wireless, has introduced the country’s first eSIM service for both prepaid and post-paid customer packages.
An eSIM is a digital SIM card that is embedded to the customer’ smartphone, eliminating the need for a physical SIM card and enabling users to have dual or multiple phone numbers on a single device.
How to check phone compatibility:
Customers can check their device compatibility by dialing *#06# and access their ‘Embedded Identity Document’ (EID). Added Econet:
If one’s device is compatible, one can immediately proceed to the nearest Econet shop, with their original personal identification document (ID) and get their new eSIM activated for free.
A range of mobile smartphone devices are compatible with the eSIM. These include:
– iPhone XS to iPhone 15
– Samsung Galaxy S20, S21, S22, S23 series
– Samsung Note 20
– Huawei P40, Huawei P40 Pro, Huawei P50 Pro, Huawei Mate 40 Pro
– Itel Vision 3 Plus
– Itel p37 Pro
