Customers of these operators can now use the Quick Transfer service.
iPhone users who have contracted their mobile rate with Movistar or O2 have obtained a great advantage: being able convert your SIM into eSIM from your mobile. Until now, those who wanted to do so had to stop by an operator store to complete the process, but now they will be able to do so from anywhere. Furthermore, if they purchase a new iPhone, they will also be able to personally transfer the eSIM from the old to the new.
What advantages does the eSIM imply?
An eSIM performs the same functions as a SIM, but virtually. The first is digital and the second is physical, but they serve the same purpose. More and more people are replacing their SIM with an eSIM, which It is more comfortable and is lost less easily. The problem is that to do this, users had to go to a physical store of the operators.
This is over for Movistar and O2 customers, its second brand. From now on you can convert your SIM card to an eSIM from home. This is possible through the Quick Transfer service. To activate it, we must connect to a Wi-Fi network, so as not to be left without a connection during the operation, and enter Settings on our iPhone. Once from there, access Mobile data and select Convert to SIM. After the process, we can remove the SIM and restart the device. From now on, the terminal will work with eSIM.
The Quick Transfer service also allows transfer the eSIM from one iPhone to another. This is so that, if you purchase a new Apple terminal, you do not have to go to the operator’s store to have your SIM converted into an eSIM again, in this case, for the new device. The way to do this is during the installation of the new iPhone.
It is important to keep in mind that not all iPhones can perform these two actions. The Quick Transfer service is only available to those who use a iPhone with iOS 17.2, which is the latest version of Apple’s mobile operating system. The oldest iPhone model that is compatible with iOS 17.2 is the iPhone XS (also XS Max and XR), so if you have an older one, you won’t be able to use Quick Transfer.
