Very happy with their customer service (had issues to auto-verify my foreign ID), information and online portal. The offers are clear and flexible. The roaming package with some data for 365 days is a great deal for those near the border. I avoid risking fees from my other SIM (EU) if it accidentally connects to Switzerland. I had recommended this to 1 friend who was very happy with the home WiFi option and now I do it for myself. Keep up the good work!

Excellent customer service and goodwill. I forgot to turn off auto-renewal and contacted the customer service one day after the new period started. They undid the renewal and refunded me the extra month.

When I found out that my Samsung Galaxy S20 FE 5G was not esim compatible, they simply swapped it with a physical sim card and send it to an address of my choice. Very responsive support team!

Very fast service and excellent customer support. I need an online internet connection on my mobile phone while in Switzerland. I am Swiss but living in Switzerland only a few months a year. I am very happy that I can activate the service in a few minutes and pay a cheap flat rate for this time. I opt for the Flat 50 plus voice. The internet connection is great when I use the hotspot for my PC.

In 3 Steps to Your eSIM

Sign up

Create your Digital Republic account.

1

Activate the eSIM

Select the "Activate eSIM" option in your account, choose your rate and verify your personal data.

2

Scan QR code & get started

Scan the QR code displayed and add your mobile phone plan. After just 5 minutes from registration to activation of the eSIM, you are connected to the Internet.

3

Convinced? Or Do You Have Any More Questions?

An eSIM is a chip that, unlike a conventional SIM card, is permanently integrated in the end device (e=embedded). This does not only eliminate the physical SIM card, but also enables more flexible and simpler mobile communications use.

If you have an eSIM-enabled device, you can create an account in the customer portal and select the option “Activate eSIM”. Select your rate plan and enter your personal data. Then scan the QR code that appears and your eSIM profile will be active.

Yes, as a new customer with a Swiss residence, you can test the eSIM free of charge. Activate your first eSIM in the customer portal and you don’t have to pay anything for the first 30 days, provided you meet the conditions.

No. An eSIM is the digital alternative to the conventional physical SIM card, while dual SIM describes the availability of two SIM slots in a smartphone. However, thanks to the eSIM, your smartphone automatically becomes a dual-SIM device because the SIM slot remains free for a physical SIM due to the chip already installed.

Since eSIM-capable smartphones usually also have a slot for SIM cards, they automatically become dual-SIM devices. For example, an active eSIM profile and an active physical SIM card in the slot can be used to make calls with two phone numbers (e.g., private and business) or to run the subscriptions for telephony and data via one of the SIMs each.

The same functions can be used with an eSIM as with a regular SIM card. The eSIM can be used with any eSIM-enabled device. Whether smartphone, tracker, smartwatch or tablet: more and more devices in Switzerland are eSIM-enabled. You can find a list of eSIM-compatible devices here.

If you have accidentally deleted your eSIM profile, you can load a new profile at any time via the customer portal. To do so, simply follow our guidance in the support portal.

You can activate an eSIM directly on your wearable, which will have its own phone number. If you want to connect an Apple Watch or Samsung Galaxy Watch, you can use our Watch SIM option as a supplement to your main subscription. The smartphone and the Watch will then share the same phone number.
