EE esim combined with a Russian operator's sim

Hello, 

I'm not an EE customer yet, but I would like to purchase an esim and use it in my Iphone XS, which is currently working with a sim of a Russian mobile operator. Will it be possible in the first place? Thanks

Hi @vlelekov If you have an unlocked iPhone XS and can get an EE SIM only contract (passing the credit checks) then sure, you can convert it to an eSIM.

Many thanks @chistery

So does it mean I still have to get an actual EE SIM only card first and only then i can convert it to an eSIM?

Hi @vlelekov I'm not sure if you can request an eSIM on the initial order, maybe if you place the order by phone or in a store.

 

@Christopher_G Do you know this one? Can an eSIM be ordered at the same time as a new contract?

Yes, you need to get an EE contract SIM 1st before you can convert it to eSIM.

Hi @chistery,

 

Yes, you can order an additional line as an eSIM as long as the phone has already been setup with a physical SIM.
