Why can't I activate my SIM card?

If your mobile phone has “Country Lock” you won’t be able to use it. You need to unlock your phone by calling your mobile provider.

What's the difference between SIM card / eSIM?

The SIM card is a physical chip that you insert in your phone. It’s tied to your phone number and identifies you, the subscriber, to the mobile carrier network.

-Embedded SIM (eSIM) is just a physical SIM card gone digital. Like a SIM card, an eSIM provides your connection to the mobile carrier network.

-Some devices can accommodate both an eSIM and a SIM card at the same time, so you can have two wireless accounts with talk, text, and data on one device.
