An eSIM is a digital SIM that allows you to activate a mobile plan from M1 without having to use a physical nano-SIM. It works the same way as a physical SIM, but without the hassle of putting a SIM in your SIM slot. Your device can use multiple mobile numbers at any one time, however it will be easily interchangeable.

M1 is one of the FIRST few providers to offer 5G eSIM in Singapore as we encourage our customers to be in the forefront of technology.

You may sign up for our 5G eSIM at the following channels:

  • New line sign-ups: M1 shops
  • Existing line SIM exchange: My M1+ app or M1 shops


Within the My M1+ App, click More > select SIM Management > request for a 5G eSIM. Alternatively, call in to 1627 for assistance.

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