Combine with your main SIM to use two numbers on one phone, while enjoying all the perks of being on a Circles.Life plan. No delivery, no contract – easy as pie. 

What is an eSIM?

eSIM is short for embedded SIM, which is a small chip inside your phone that acts like the physical SIM card you typically insert into the phone yourself. Like traditional SIM cards, eSIMs store the information we need to connect your phone to your plan, allowing you to make calls, send texts and connect to the internet. The only difference between eSIMs and physical cards is that an eSIM is built into your phone, which means you don’t need to worry about taking it in and out to change lines or providers. 

In other words, imagine a tiny, permanent SIM card that stays in your phone and can be activated and altered remotely. Pretty neat, right? 

Though we’re beginning to see phone brands explore the idea of scrapping the physical SIM card tray and focusing entirely on eSIM, most phones support it, so you can use it as a second line. By using a normal SIM card as your primary line and having the eSIM as a backup, you can enjoy a dual SIM without needing to order a second SIM card. The best part? Having both lines with Circles.Life means you get double the value from all our amazing phone plans and SIM-only deals

The simple way to enjoy dual SIM benefits

eSIMs offer you all the perks of dual SIM without needing to have both in one device. This makes eSIMs perfect for frequent travelers, business owners, professionals with a work phone, and anyone else who needs to switch between two lines. 

Separate work and play

Whether you run a small business or need a phone line for work, using your personal number is messy. Shift your second line to an eSIM to keep your main number private, see exactly how much you spend on work calls and identify which line calls are coming through.

Travel with peace of mind

Frequent flyer? Zip in and out of the country without swapping SIM cards by keeping your international line on a physical card and using your eSIM in Singapore. That’s if you aren’t already using our awesome roaming add-ons! 

Switch numbers effortlessly

An eSIM makes it easy to make and receive calls and texts on two lines at once with any phone that supports dual active SIMs. No need to fumble around with the SIM tray every time you switch.

Activate online in minutes

Joining Circles.Life is a piece of cake no matter how you slice it, but opting for an eSIM makes it even easier. Check if your phone is compatible, choose a plan online, and scan the QR code we email to you within 10 minutes. Boom – we told you it’s easy. 

How to get started

  1. Check to make sure your current phone (or the one you want to buy) has an eSIM
  2. Choose between 20GB and 100GB as your base plan, and select any add-ons you want to start with (you can always add or remove more later through the app). 
  3. We’ll email you a QR code within 10 minutes, which you can use to activate your eSIM.

That’s it, that’s all. You can be up and running with a new plan packed with data in a matter of minutes, no time spent waiting for a delivery. If you’re an existing customer, you can even transfer your current Circles.Life number to an eSIM.
