Selected iOS and Android devices feature Dual SIM capability with a nano-SIM and an eSIM. An eSIM is a digital SIM that allows you to activate a mobile plan from M1 without having to use a physical nano-SIM.

    Here are some advantages of an eSIM:
  • Hold separate voice / data plans on a single device and switch whenever you want to
  • Assign and use one number for work and another for personal use

Your device can use one number at any one time.

You may sign up for eSIM at the following channels:

New Line Sign-ups : M1 Shops, Exclusive Distributors and m1.com.sg
Re-contracts : M1 Shops and Exclusive Distributors

If you wish to change your existing physical SIM to an eSIM, you may do so at any M1 Shops or call in to 1627 for assistance.

For iOS devices, please refer to the setup instructions here.

For Samsung Galaxy Fold, please refer to the setup instructions here.
