Goa: Bharti Airtel (“Airtel”), one of India’s leading telecommunications service provider, today, in a customer letter emphasized the advancements in mobile technology with embedded SIMs (e-SIMs) and encouraged Airtel users to make the switch to an e-SIM. Bharti Airtel has streamlined the e-SIM upgrade process through the Airtel Thanks App, simplifying the transition from a physical SIM to an e-SIM.
An e-SIM is an online extension of one’s regular SIM card, eliminating the need to physically access SIM card on one’s phone. In today’s digital first lifestyle and with increasing penetration of newer models of smart wearables, smartphones, etc being e-SIM enabled, the shift from physical SIM can provide seamless connectivity between multiple devices.
In the customer letter, Gopal Vittal, MD and CEO, Bharti Airtel cited a few examples where an e-SIM comes in handy for users. Like when going for a morning jog, now Airtel e-SIM users can just wear their smartwatch and be connected to their phone without having to physically carry it. e-SIMs also help against theft as it makes it more difficult for the criminals to disconnect the e-SIM from the stolen device as compared to physical SIMs; also making a lost phone easily traceable. e-SIMs let customers use multiple mobile phone numbers on single SIM and device and makes shifting from a device to the other easy and seamless.
Airtel has tried to make the switch to an e-SIM as seamless as possible for customers. Airtel CEO highlighted that all devices supporting the e-SIM feature are compatible with Airtel e-SIM. Customers can easily convert a physical SIM into an e-SIM through the Airtel Thanks App, available for download on both the Google Play Store and Apple iOS App Stores.
