The World's Best eSIM - Roaming Professionals, Since 2009

Soft SIM for smart phones, an embedded SIM.  For all intensive purposes, the same as a plastic SIM card (chip), but an eSIM is downloaded into your phone after scanning a QR code (or using a dedicated app).
Once downloaded, your phone becomes a Dual SIM phone, and you can decide which SIM is primary and which is secondary for calls and for data.
Different phones offer different configuration options for the use of your SIM and eSIM together.
See the gsm2go eSIM compatible phones guide here.

The eSIM can stay in your phone as long as you keep it alive (gsm2go offers a “keep eSIM alive” service for the eSIM for $1/month).

Then you can use it for your next trip and in between trips, you can use your eSIM for outgoing international calls.

We offer a talk time add-on with 100 minutes of international long distance for $8

The answer is yes (and this is a rare find).
We offer some voice minutes with all our plans, so you can actually talk to people when in travel (as opposed to relying on WhatsApp etc. for voice).
You can call the hotel, call your driver, receive texts, tell the restaurant you are running late.
All those things you are used to doing with your phone when you are home, you can do in travel with the gsm2go eSIM.
We provide a good amount of courtesy minutes with all our plans, and if you run out, you can always use the gsm2go wallet for more voice minutes, as needed.

Yes, of course. (Unlike most others!)
And incoming texts are free.
You can register for services while abroad and receive authentication messages.
(You will not be able to do that with services that provide data only SIMs)

The gsm2go eSIM comes with a UK phone number by default.
And we can assign additional incoming numbers on request from many countries across the globe.
(You can decide which of your incoming numbers will be displayed on outgoing calls).
Your eSIM will receive calls (on its incoming phone numbers), as long as it is alive, while you are home or in travel.

Once you choose a plan, check out, and pay, we will send you an email with your eSIM QR code.
All you need to do is scan the QR code, from your phone’s camera, and 5 minutes later, your gsm2go eSIM will be up and running in your phone.
Please see our support section for a very simple guide, how to install on an iPhone or an Android.

We will send you a text (SMS) message when you reach two thirds usage of your data plan.
(Sometimes such messages fail to arrive but this is rare)
Then you can buy another plan if you want.
Alternatively, you can choose auto-renewal when you buy an eSIM and we will automatically apply a new plan if your data allocation is depleted.

Not an option with gsm2go eSIM. Your service is prepaid.

gsm2go is a veteran in the world of global roaming.
Since 2009, we have sold directly and thru distributors over 600,000 SIM Cards.
Our distinction has always been high quality service: not expensive but not cheap either (when you pay peanuts, you get monkeys).
We are able to deliver dramatic savings when compared to roaming with your home-country service provider. We do that without depreciation in quality of service.
When we say quality service we refer to our cellular infrastructure, choice of carriers, billing and provisioning platform, and customer service and tech support.
Our enterprise customers have been with us for more than a decade. That must say something about us.

Our eSIM is a relatively new product.
We made use of the worlds quiet time in 2020 and 2021 to complete extensive testing and to build this customer facing service, for you.

We cover the globe.
With the gsm2go plastic SIM, we provide over 160 countries.
With the new gsm2go eSIM, our coverage as of the beginning of 2022 is approximately 100 countries.
This means almost all most likely travel destinations.
And if you are going somewhere our eSIM coverage is not yet available, contact us. We will send you a regular plastic SIM.

We recommend 1.5 GB for short travel (about a week), 3.5 GB for medium length trips, and 6 GBs for longer trips.
We also recommend optimizing your phone for cellular data roaming so it does not consume cellular data needlessly.
Please see the gsm2go cellular data roaming optimization guide.
Configuring your phone for optimized cellular data use while in travel only takes a few minutes and it will not affect your use of the phone.
