Our China eSIM options gives you 30 days of high speed data anywhere in China (not Hong Kong). Select how much data you need for your China trip and we will send you a QR code and instructions on how to activate the eSIM. With data, you can check emails, check your flight details on the go, use GPS and anything else that requires data. In order to make phone calls, you will need to use an app such as WhatsApp, Facetime or others. Cellular Abroad recommends Talkatone as it is free to download and use and allows you to call and text the USA and Canada.
Please note that your cell phone, besides being eSIM compatible, must also be unlocked.
Here is how to check to see if your phone or iPad is unlocked and eSIM compatible. Go to:
– Carrier lock : you will see in this field “NO SIM restrictions” or “SIM restricted” which means it is unlocked.
In case your device is locked, contact your carrier and see if you qualify to have the device “unlocked” (you just need to provide its IMEI that you can find under the Settings or dial *#06# to display it on your screen).
