New year, new phone! Given the ongoing pandemic, it’s nice to have the newest and hottest tech to keep us all connected. Our smartphones hold so many amazing capabilities, it’s almost hard to keep track of everything they can do.
One greatly overlooked feature is that many new phones have eSIM technology, an embedded SIM Card that lets you activate a carrier plan electronically. This means that you can purchase and download additional data onto your phone! This is a great alternative to accepting regular data overages in your home country, or clinging to WiFi while traveling. Simply select an eSIM plan for your location, scan the QR code, and get connected.
