Telstra Launches New App That Will FINALLY End One of the Most Annoying Things About Owning a Cell Phone
- New technology will eradicate physical SIM cards and the troublesome reject devices
- The eSIM card is a rewritable piece of software that stores a user’s data
- But until now, customers had to visit retailers to transition to the new service
- The My Telstra app allows users to set up and manage their eSIM from home
New technology from Telstra will allow mobile phone users to permanently ban SIM cards and the tricky ejection tools that help access.
The eSIM card is a rewritable piece of software that stores a user’s data and allows customers to use multiple phone numbers on one device, even if they don’t have a dual SIM cell phone.
This means no more scrambling to find a safety pin or the back of an earring to eject and remove a SIM card when your phone dies.
Mobile phone users can now switch to an eSIM without setting foot in a store after a new app is launched by Telstra (stock image)
eSIMS launched in 2019, but until now, users had to visit a store or wait for installation details to be published for the change to take effect.
Telstra has now set up an accompanying digital service to manage the tool without requiring customers to visit a store.
The new digital offering through the My Telstra app allows customers to fully manage the eSIM service online and transfer their mobile number in just two minutes instead of the days it takes to do so face-to-face to do.
Mobile phone users can now say goodbye to SIM cards and their cumbersome ejection tools forever
It’s as easy as logging into the app, selecting the device they want to transfer to an eSIM and confirming everything via a unique code sent to the phone.
But the benefit is only available to Telstra customers with compatible devices.
Some of the eligible mobile phones include the Apple iPhone 12, Motorola Razr 4G Fold, and some newer Samsung Galaxy Notes and S20s with 5G.
Getting the eSIM up and running is easy and can be done online
