Which phones are compatible with eSIM? The full list

Since 2018, cell phone manufacturers have equipped their high-end devices with eSIM technology, creating a revolution in how we use our phones.

But because the technology is so new, most phones do not have eSIM technology. That’s why we put together this guide, so you can check whether your device is compatible.

Please make sure your device is on this list and that it is carrier-unlocked before you buy.

We want everyone to be able to connect to the internet abroad, so we’re updating this list every month with the latest info.
