Etisalat now 9mobile in Nigeria is rewarding their customer that switch to eSIM card with whopping 7GB free data and you just need to expect more goodies from 9mobile network.
Let me firstly work you through what 9mobile eSIM card is all about and how to activate it on your 9mobile and the list of compatible smartphones.
9mobile eSIM card (All you need to know)
Generally speaking the eSIM service, refers to an embedded SIM card which is basically a small chip inside a phone.
The secret is that you do not need to insert an eSIM into their phone, as it is already built into the smartphone devices or wearables.
The eSIM is FREE and available to both new & existing customers, provided the customer has an eSIM enabled device, like smartphones and the likes.
I believed your next question will be, what are the compatible devices? but the disappointment here is that a limited amount of device is using this new service as at the time of making this write. According to the information on the 9mobile website, the list of compatible device and brands includes:
|Apple||iPhone 11, 11 Pro, 11 Pro Max, iPhone XS, XS Max, iPhone XR|
|Samsung||Samsung S20 Series|
|Pixel 3, 3 XL, Pixel 4, 4 XL|
Meanwhile for you to enjoy any free rewards from 9mobile, you need to use the above listed compatible smartphones or devices.

How to Activate 9mobile e-SIM in Nigeria
Interested 9mobile customer will need to walk into select 9Mobile Experience Centres and request for an eSIM activation. However, a QR code will be provided to scan and download an eSIM profile and perform the usual SIM registration.
Everyone can download the e-SIM by scanning the QR-Code given to you by 9Mobile at the experience centre visited. Note that you will need to be connected to a data network to download the e-SIM profile.
Imagine you misplace your QR code, I will like to state here that it can always be retrieved at any time from any of our 9Mobile Experience centres. You will have to provide proof of identity and the associated mobile number to retrieve your QR-code.
And if you misplaced the e-SIM device, just walk into any 9Mobile Experience centres and request for the MSISDN to be blocked. You can immediately initiate a SIM swap if you pass all the security requirements for a SIM swap to be initiated.

The good new is that you can swap your e-sim just like we do on ther normal SIM card. The e-SIM swap process is not different, however, you will need to download the e-SIM profile when swapping into an eSIM device.
Can an eSIM profile be used more than once?
Yes, it can be used but not while it is downloaded and installed in a device. It can be reused once the profile is dissociated from a device.
If you are having the physical SIM and wish to swap to the 9mobile e-SIM. You will need to perform a SIM swap at select 9mobile Experience Centres into the eSIM. (all standard SIM swap process such as proof of identity etc. would be followed).
Where you can swap your physical SIM to eSIM can be seen in the table below
Also note that you can swap your SIM to normal phyiscal SIM card. 9mobile Retail Advisor will have to perform a SIM swap for you. In this case, a physical SIM would be given to you. (all standard SIM swap process such as proof of identity etc. would be followed).
