What Is eSim?
An eSIM, or embedded SIM card, is a tiny chip that is integrated into smartphones, modems, Wi-fis, routers, PC and lots more. Unlike the mini, minor and nana SIM cards, it does not need to be inserted into a device as it is already embedded into the device.

Customers need to go to one of the designated 9Mobile Experience Centers and make a request for eSIM activation in order to get their 9Mobile eSIMs activated.
After the request has been submitted, the customer will be provided with a QR code, which will allow them to scan the code and download the eSIM profile.

The answer is yes, but while it is being downloaded and installed on a device, it cannot be used. Once the profile has been detached from the device, it is available for subsequent uses. 
Can I Recover My 9Mobile eSim QR Code?
Any one of 9Mobile Experience centers will be able to provide you with the QR code whenever you need it. In order to obtain your QR-code, you will first need to give some kind of identification along with the cell number linked with it.
What Happens if I Misplaced My eSim Device?
