My cell carrier (Mint Mobile) now supports eSIM. I am thinking of making the switch and have been doing some research as to what its benefits are.
Here is what I gathered so far:
- I would have a free physical sim card slot in the event that I travel (what’s that?) and want to go dual sim
- If someone steals my phone it might be easier for me to track it down since the thief would not be able to easily remove my sim card
- No need to worry about a faulty (physical) sim card
The cons seem to be that it would be potentially slightly more time-consuming to switch to another phone which I am fine with since I don’t do that more than once every two years or so and a lack of 5G dual sim support.
Am I missing something? Anything else I should be worried about?
