When should I activate my eSIM before a trip?


Don't configure your eSIM too soon. Each data plan for eSIMs has a set number of days that are tied to it. Start the plan slowly so that it will endure the duration of your trip.

We advise setting up the data plan the day before your trip.

If you are still at home, this could be right before you depart. or when you get to your final destination. You decide how to do this; just keep in mind that WiFi connection is required to finish the setup.


To avoid being rushed, you might wish to set up the eSIM earlier than this. However, keep in mind that you cannot halt the plan once the eSIM is configured, thus the remaining days of validity will begin to run out.


Simply deduct the length of the plan from the final day you'll need it to determine the earliest day you can set up your eSIM.


If you have a 15-day eSIM and require it until July 15th, for instance, you can set it up starting on July 1st, even if you're still at home on that day.

Your eSIM has not yet been installed; its activation is the last step.

It's important to note that the eSIM's validity period begins to run out the moment you activate it. Wait to activate until you are prepared to use the eSIM.

  • After scanning the QR code, proceed as directed. When you are ready to use the eSIM, switch it on only then.

  • Activate mobile data by selecting it under Settings > SIM Card and Mobile Data.

Switch data roaming on. Go to Settings > SIM Card and Mobile Data to do this. After that, turn on data roaming by clicking the green switch next to the new eSIM.
