Plastic SIM to eSIM conversion....how to do it?

Hi,

 

I have a standard sim card number with GIFF-GAFF; but wish to use this actual number as an eSim number on my iphone 11 (eSim compatiable).

 

This number is for business use so I need it to be converted into an eSim, so I only need to carry one 'mobile rather than go back to the old days and carry two mobiles around with me!!!

 

Thanks In Advance, 

1Baloo

@1Baloo 

Get your giffgaff pac code Guide: How to get your PAC 2019 Update 

Then call O2 to order an eSim pack and give them your PAC at the same time Guide: Coronavirus Community Help and Support

Re: Plastic SIM to eSIM conversion....how to do it?

@1Baloo Your post is a little confusing. Do you want to use your Giff-Gaff number on an O2 account using an esim? If so, you would have to port your number to O2 and take an O2 business contract. Giff-Gaff uses the O2 network, but they are still a different provider.

Or do you want to keep your Giff-Gaff account and just change your current sim to an esim? If that's the case, Giff-Gaff don't do esims, so that's not possible.

Sorry Bambino......MI5 has sorted it for me. I just told myself it cannot be as easy to change a physical SIM mobile number into an eSIM number.....but it is!
THANKS AGAIN BOTH OF YOU.
B SAFE.
