It doesn’t work immediately with all providers, but Google Phone’s new SIM functions are really powerful
Until now, eSIM is not necessarily so easy compared to a simple plastic SIM card, because it takes a lot of effort to move it to a new smartphone, for example. With my provider it only works together with support. The Pixel 8 phone makes it easy for the first time.
Transfer eSIM easily
As early owners of Pixel 8 phones can now report, eSIM transfer is now possible. For example, an eSIM can be directly transferred from a Pixel 7 Pro to a Pixel 8 Pro. This process, if the eSIM profile is compatible, is offered directly when setting up the new device.
Transform the sim
But there are more exciting functions related to SIM cards. You will also be able to convert a classic plastic SIM into a new SIM. Of course, this doesn’t work with every provider, but the first providers already offer it.
I think that only integration of eSIM etc with these functions can really work in a meaningful way
