Dual SIM: 1 iPhone, 2 Numbers - How Does That Work?

How the eSIM Turns Your iPhone Into a Dual SIM Device

Two phone numbers on one smartphone: sounds like a convenient way to separate private and business, right?

In the past, those who wanted to separate their business and private phone numbers had few attractive options: two different smartphones or two SIM cards that had to be changed manually as needed. The dual-SIM function solves this problem by allowing two SIM cards to be inserted and used in parallel. Until a few years ago, this was reserved only for a few devices with two SIM card slots. Thanks to eSIM, every new iPhone since 2018 - and many other new smartphones - are now able to have two phone numbers on one device at the same time.

Dual SIM Works Flawlessly and Flexibly With eSIM

The classic SIM card constitutes the first phone number and the integrated SIM, the eSIM, the second number. Both numbers are active at the same time, you stay connected and available at all times, and there's no need to tediously swap SIM cards - or even lose them. You can define which one is your main number and which one should be used only for data or only for calling. You can also set this contact specific. That means, if a customer calls you, you can decide if the call should go via the business or the private number. You can also deactivate the business SIM card on the weekend and reactivate it on Monday, so you can enjoy your well-deserved time off.
