New: Prixtel offers e-SIM

Wind of novelty at Prixtel. Whether you are a new customer or a former subscriber, you will now be able to take advantage of the e-SIM at the MVNO. Prixtel thus becomes the first virtual operator to offer this dematerialized card to its customers..

What are the advantages of the e-SIM?

The e-SIM is a virtual SIM card which therefore replaces the physical SIM card. It is directly integrated into your smartphone and activating it is child’s play: just download a QR code. In opting for an e-SIM, you immediately get your SIM card: speed and simplicity! You no longer need to wait for your SIM card to take advantage of your mobile plan.

And the e-SIM has many other advantages:

  • You no longer have to worry about choosing the right SIM card format for your phone, which means no more risk of getting the wrong one between standard SIM, micro SIM or nano SIM.
  • You also cannot lose or break the e-SIM since it is directly integrated into the smartphone
  • If your phone is stolen or lost, the e-SIM can be deactivated and reactivated with just one click. Again, no need to wait to receive the new SIM card by mail.
  • If your mobile operator offers the multi-SIM option, you should be able to download the same activation key on all your connected objects. Your tablet, your watch, your car and your phone will then be linked to the same mobile plan, with one and the same phone number.
  • You will be able to use two different lines on the same phone, even if it only has one physical SIM card slot (provided it is e-SIM compatible). This is the case with the latest iPhones, for example. So you won’t have to juggle two phones anymore. Convenient for those who have a personal line and a professional line!
  • The e-SIM is also more ecological than the physical SIM card: fewer cards to produce, less plastic and electronic components manufactured and then thrown away, less CO2e generated by the manufacture of the SIM card and its routing…

How to get your e-SIM card from Prixtel?

The e-SIM is available for new customers of Pricetel if they request the portability of their line, as for existing subscribers. To take advantage of the e-SIM, simply download its QR code in the Prixtel customer area, section Lines > Info and documents.

For people who are already subscribed to Prixtel, they can switch to the e-SIM from their Customer Area, by ordering a new SIM. The e-SIM is also offered in the event of loss or theft of the phone. Once the order has been placed, the e-SIM can be activated from the Lines > Management of my line section, then all you have to do is download the QR code of the e-SIM in the Infos and documents tab.

How much does the e-SIM cost? Is it more expensive than the classic SIM?

The e-SIM activation fee at Pricetel are the same amount as for the classic card. They amount to 10€. For subscribers with more than one year of seniority, the e-SIM activation fee is €5.
