📲 What is an eSIM?
* An eSIM is an embedded SIM technology. Think of it as a digital SIM card. Rather than requiring users to fiddle with SIM trays and pins, the eSIM operates within your device's firmware.

📲 What is an eSIM data plan?
* An eSIM data plan is a prepaid data-only plan that you can install directly to your eSIM compatible device. It’s a lightweight prepaid plan or virtual data SIM for whatever local carriers exist in the country you’re currently in, the bonus is that you no longer need a fiddly, easily lost old-school plastic SIM card. eSIMs are a true technological revolution and we bring them right into your eSIM compatible device!
* You get access to local data services at affordable prices without the need to hunt down a physical SIM card, WiFi or paying for expensive roaming.
* You can continue to use your existing phone number while using the data from your eSIM.

📲 Does an eSIM come with a number?
* Some of our eSIMs do and we're working on adding more into our store over time. Check your eSIM’s description for details.

(Airalo has eSIMs for over 190+ countries and regions and we're working 24/7 to expand our coverage.)

* Step 3: Purchase & install your eSIM
There are three ways to install your eSIM; most can be installed directly, if this isn’t possible you can use a QR code or install it manually.

❤️ Why do we love eSIMs?
* You aren’t disconnected during transit. With an eSIM, you can simply activate your service once you’ve arrived and you’re connected immediately.
* You don’t have to mess around with fiddly hardware. Your eSIM is handled through an app, making things simpler for everyone.
* It’s much easier to switch plans. Every eSIM from Airalo is prepaid and requires no contract, so you can top-up your service or switch your plan whenever you want.
* Prices are clear and fair with no hidden fees.
* You can store multiple eSIMs on one device. That gives you the freedom to purchase your eSIMs ahead of time and simply activate them on arrival.

I really love not having to go to a mobile store and switch SIM. Also, I don't have to worry about the language barrier as I am traveling. Cons: 1) It can be a little tricky to set up. The SIM detection was a little glitchy; it took a few tries to get right and I had to learn how to change selection for primary SIM. Having a better guide with figures may help. 2) No local number so call and text is not available. Super convenient over all and offer really affordable plans.

The app works and is a great way to stay connected. Plans are reasonably priced and worth it for the convenience alone, speeds are what you'd expect in the area you're traveling. Two stars subtracted because (1) you do not get a local number to receive calls or SMS which is a problem when accessing an app or service that wants to verify via SMS and (2) In several cases the eSIM did automatically select the right mobile operator and I had to manually pick and test a few to see what worked.

I've used Airalo in the US and now in Japan. Both experiences have been great. Very reliable service. Seems faster here in Japan. I'm also able to tether effectively which is nice. Installation was easier on my Android but harder on my wife's iPhone. However, I did the the QR code method the second time, and it's the way to go to avoid issues. Highly recommend.
