I know it is still early days yet and is still in testing phase.

But what do you people think of the Esim.

 

Basically it is an electronic sim card.

The idea is you can change providers and plans almost instantly.

You still have to have a card or something similar on your device to store the information.

 

No longer will you have to wait days for the card to arrive in the mail and hours after you activate the card.

I can see why the Telco's don't want to rush as the change in the way the system operates and it (eventually will) give the consumers more control.

No idea - I don't remember even hearing about it, let alone have used it.

Sounds initially like a good idea.

 

But then 15 seconds thought later, sounds like it's probably full of loopholes and will make it easier for the scammers to go out cloning and run up big bills for people.

Esims would be gold to hackers. They can use your identity literally without you knowing it.
