T-Mobile this week announced expanded support for embedded SIM (eSIM), which is basically just a physical SIM card gone digital.

Last year, the Operator launched eSIM on prepaid plans, and starting August 28, customers can light up an eSIM with a T-Mobile postpaid plan -- something the Operator's customers have asked for – to open new ways of using an eSIM-equipped device by adding a second line on the same device.

eSIM is great for people who want to use both work and personal numbers on a single smartphone, set up a phone with an international carrier for extended stays outside the U.S. or just get rid of that physical SIM card. Plus, AT&T, Sprint and Verizon customers can get T-Mobile on their existing smartphone. 

Some of the eSIM compatible phones are - iPhone XS, XR, and XS Max and DSDS (Dual SIM Dual Standby). DSDS compatible devices can accommodate both an eSIM and a physical SIM so user can have two wireless accounts with talk, text, and data on one device.
