Unlike a physical SIM card that you have to manually pop into a small pocket in your phone to get connected, an eSIM is already installed in compatible phones, or as the “e” implies, is embedded.  

Now let’s get into the mechanics. To put it simply, how eSIMs work is by being programmed to receive information and data from your chosen mobile network provider. This means switching to a new mobile network provider doesn’t have to involve going to a store to buy a physical card and swapping out SIMs – making connecting to a new network fast and travelling abroad much easier. You can switch to an eSIM mobile plan with felix in just a few clicks. 
 
However, because this technology only become widely used in 2018, there are certain phones that are eSIM compatible and others that missed the boat. The good news is that all the major mobile phone companies have got eSIM compatible phones, so it’s really just a matter of whether your phone model is modern enough. 

Use an eSIM phone compatibility checker 

So now you know a bit more about why there are only certain phones that are eSIM compatible, you might be asking yourself, “well does my phone support eSIM?”. There are a few ways to find this out. One of them is to use an eSIM phone compatibility checker, like the one we’ve made below.  
 
Simply click on the block that with the brand name of your phone, then look for the model of your phone on the list. If you see it, great! This means your phone is eSIM compatible.  If you can't find your device on the list, this means it may not be eSIM compatible and you will need a physical SIM to switch to felix.
