Dual SIM compatible devices: When one mobile service is being used, the second mobile service becomes inactive. This means you can only receive calls and texts, or use data, on one service at a time. Call forwarding can be set up so you don't miss any calls when either service is inactive.
eSIM activation can be achieved using physical (printed) QR codes, digital QR codes or via an app based process. The latter two activation processes are digital and do not require warehousing or physical distribution.
