XOX eSIM is now available and you can activate it immediately

XOX has released its eSIM solution which can support the latest iPhone models in Malaysia. The benefit of an eSIM is that you’re not restricted to a physical SIM card. You can use this to enable the new iPhone’s dual-SIM feature and the plan can be activated in a matter of minutes.

At the moment, XOX’s eSIM supports the following devices:

iPhone XR
iPhone XS
iPhone XS Max
iPad Pro (2018)
Google Pixel 3 XL
Google Pixel 3
Google Pixel 2 XL
Google Pixel 2

For its eSIM plans, XOX is offering four options that start from RM39/month. The base B39 plan comes with 8GB data with 50 minutes of calls and 50 SMS. As a promo for eSIM users, they have also introduced a B59e plan that offers unlimited calls, 100 SMS and 12GB + free 3GB data for RM59/month.

To activate the eSIM on the iPhone XS is pretty straightforward. Just apply online by submitting a copy of your identification card and make payment for the plan you want. After the transaction is completed, XOX will show you the QR code that you can scan to activate the eSIM on your mobile device. The QR code and activation details are also sent to your registered email address. Do note that your iPhone must be running on iOS 12.1.1 or newer.

If you have an existing nano SIM card on your iPhone, the new XOX plan will be added as a secondary line. While setting it up, you can choose how you would want to use both lines for calls, SMS and data. Interestingly, there’s a pop-up that says that the plan is not certified for the iPhone but you can still use it.

XOX’s eSIM is currently applicable for new registrations only and they are still working on an option for existing XOX customers. According to the FAQ, you can move your eSIM subscription to another device. Just delete the eSIM plan on the old unit and you can scan the same QR code on the new device to make the switch.
