How can I get support for the StaffTraveler eSIM?

What is an eSIM?

Of course, you're familiar with SIM cards - those tiny chips you insert into your phone to connect to a cellular network. An eSIM (electronic SIM) functions much the same way, but it's integrated into your device, serving as a virtual SIM card. With an eSIM, there is no need to swap out SIM cards anymore physically. You easily activate your eSIM by tapping a button in the StaffTraveler eSIM app. This means you can connect to the internet while traveling abroad without ever worrying about finding a local SIM card or dealing with expensive roaming charges. An eSIM is like having a portable, virtual SIM card that makes staying connected while traveling easier and more convenient than ever before. It's a game-changer for travelers like you who love exploring new places while staying connected.

Why do I need an eSIM?

No more dealing with fiddly SIM cards and ejector pins. With an eSIM, activating a new cellular plan is as simple as tapping a few buttons in our app.

Whether you're on a short weekend getaway or a long-term adventure, an eSIM offers the flexibility to choose the data plan that best suits your needs.

Traditional roaming can be costly, with varying rates across different countries and delayed billing that often results in unexpected charges at month's end. With the StaffTraveler eSIM, you have the advantage of prepaying for your data. Regardless of where you are in the world, you enjoy a consistent, low rate. This method leads to considerable savings, allowing you to stay connected without overspending.

I didn't get 10 StaffTraveler credits when I purchased a StaffTraveler eSIM plan.

Did you use the same email address in the StaffTraveler eSIM app as in the StaffTraveler app? We can only automatically reward your StaffTraveler credits if the email addresses match exactly. Please note that if you signed up using Log In with Apple, Apple might anonymize your email address so we can't match your eSIM account to your StaffTraveler account. Contact us at [email protected], and we'll add the credits to your account.

Does the StaffTraveler eSIM support 4G or 5G networks?

It depends on where you are. If local providers have 4G or 5G networks, the StaffTraveler eSIM supports them. If no 4G or 5G network is available, you will connect to an available LTE or 3G network.

My eSIM doesn't work.
