How to Buy an Indosat IM3 eSIM for those of you who want to use dual SIM on iPhone

Gadgetren – After a long time, Indosat Hutchison Ooredoo finally implementing eSIM (embedded SIM) technology following several other operators who have used it for a long time.

For those of you who don’t know, eSIM is an embedded SIM technology that allows us to install a telephone number without the need to insert a physical card into the device. Some companies call it a digital SIM.

So it’s different from a SIM in the form of a card, the user will only need to download a telephone number profile from a service provider to program the cellphone. But keep in mind that not all devices support it because this technology requires special components.

Apart from requiring a device that already supports it, the availability of eSIM is still quite small because only a few operators have implemented it. Indosat finally fulfilled the list.

Users who use cellphones with eSIM support can also try Indosat’s new technology. Here are the steps for buying or exchanging old cards for those of you who don’t know how.

How to Buy an Indosat IM3 eSIM

  • Visit Indosat outlets that provide eSIM
  • Contact the officer there
  • Say to buy or exchange old card for eSIM
  • Follow the directions given by the officer
  • Usually we will be asked to activate the eSIM QR by verifying personal data
  • After everything is done, scan the eSIM QR using the SIM settings feature on a compatible cellphone

Indosat’s eSIM technology supports both Android and iOS operating system-based mobile phones. It’s just that you need to remember that each model generally has its own settings interface so the QR Code scanning process may differ from one another.

But in general, we can scan the eSIM QR by using the scanner feature on the page Settings > SIM Card manager > Add mobile plan for Android or Settings > Cellular > Add Cellular Plan for iOS.

Until the time this article was published, the availability of Indosat eSIM is unfortunately still very limited. We can only get it in several outlets in Jakarta. Included among these are the following.
