VIVA, the first telecom operator in Bahrain to introduce the revolutionary eSIM technology

(Manama, Bahrain – 1st November 2018): VIVA Bahrain, the Kingdom’s leading telecom operator, announced the launch of the revolutionary eSIM technology, available for the first time in Bahrain. VIVA’s innovative eSIM service offers flexibility and convenience by enabling customers to use both SIM card slots available in their Apple devices, such as iPhone Xs, Xs Max or Xr.

VIVA subscribers can seamlessly switch between multiple lines without the need for a physical SIM. Additionally, for those who wish to continue the use of their physical SIM, they can still use it in conjunction with the eSIM technology and thus have two lines active on their phone.

All VIVA post-paid and pre-paid subscribers using the iPhone Xs, Xs Max or Xr devices can take advantage of the new service instantly. Customers who are interested in activating an eSIM can visit any of the 19 VIVA retail stores for assistance with the installation of the eSIM add-on.

VIVA chief commercial officer, Karim Tabbouche said, “We are pleased to be the first to introduce the eSIM technology in Bahrain, which will simplify the mobile experience for our VIVA customers. This is a great example of our dedication to always be pioneers in telecom and digital innovation within the Kingdom”
