The future is the Dialog eSIM
About eSIM Technology
eSIM stands for “embedded SIM”, a programmable chip built in to the device itself. The chip can be programmed with a profile over the internet and eliminates the need to insert a SIM card in to the Phone/device to be connected to a mobile network.
With eSIM technology, you can switch between multiple phone numbers via your phone’s settings. For example, you will be able to switch between your private and business numbers on a device, without physically having to swap the SIMs.

This is the most recent standard that has been issued by GSMA and any device that complies with older standards or deviates from the standard will not be compatible to obtain an eSIM profile from Dialog.
