eSIM - Anyone Use One?

Recommended Posts

Embedded SIM (eSIM) is a SIM card that’s built into your smartphone and can’t be removed. It performs the same function as a traditional SIM, except that it’s programmable and physically connected to your smartphone’s motherboard.

The reason I ask is it allows you to get a temporary data plan overseas while you are traveling.  You don't have to go through hassle of getting a SIM card and swapping it into your phone.  Also, the supported phones are $500+ & I don't want to spend that much on a phone.  Just want to see if an actual human has had any luck.

I'm looking into for our cruise out of St Martin next spring, so I have some time to research.  Thanks!

@SpaceCowboy9 When traveling for long durations abroad, I have always opted to pay the daily international rate directly to my phone provider. I think AT&T charges $10 per day for calls and text packages on my smartphone. My husband has bought very cheap pay-ahead phones and even old phones,  adding a local sim card in order to save on those extra fees. Have you called your current smartphone provider to see what the daily rate would be? If it's only a day in St. Martin, $10 of unlimited usage would be pretty reasonable and hassle-free.
