The calling credits for the eSIM prepaid at Simyo are:

  • £7.50 calling credit for just £5
  • £22.50 calling credit for £15
  • £35.00 calling credit for £25

Because of a nice discount, you pay less than what you receive. For example, you only pay £5 for £7.50 calling credit with Simyo.

Other providers, such as KPN, Vodafone, 50plus Mobiel and Odido, do not yet offer prepaid in combination with the eSIM.

Dual SIM with SIM only and prepaid at the same time

Because the e-SIM is a digital chip, you can use two SIM cards. This way you can set your SIM-only subscription on the eSIM and physically press your prepaid card into the device.

With dual SIM you have two telephone numbers on one phone. This is useful if you want to use the same device for business and private calls. You can also buy a physical prepaid card abroad and use it in addition to your own English SIM-only subscription.
