How many active SIM cards do you have?

Just to clarify, we’re talking about active, physical SIM cards here. We’re not talking about your dead SIM card from your trip to Vietnam in 2016 or your old SIM cards that are no longer active.

Made the switch to eSIM and no longer have any active SIM cards? Then you can go ahead and choose the relevant option above.

Either way, SIM card penetration in some countries stands at over 100%. One cited reason is that many people in these markets buy a second SIM card from a different network to take advantage of data promotions. So we wouldn’t be surprised to see some people voting for multiple SIMs.
