Review: GigSky's Data-Only eSIM Service Offers Convenient LTE Connectivity for Travel

Way too expensive even with its convenience. You can get like 40 GB of data for 10 € in France for example and use it all across Europe.
Gigsky has competiton : Truphone and Ubigi.

The convenience of having your phone number for sms and voice calls and using this worldwide data only services is priceless. It’s the reason why I upgraded from the X to XS.

Wow! That pricing! What’s the point?

Most places, picking up a SIM is no more hassle then stopping at a kiosk in the arrivals hall. Takes five minutes and most countries have outstanding travel plans for tourists.

Worse yet is that it seems there is no way to just turn OFF your domestic line, except for Wifi to keep things like iMessage active.

The eSIM implementation seems pretty half baked at this point.

I wouldn’t fault this on the eSIM implementation, this vendor is just taking advantage of being early to the game.

I’ve never swapped the SIM card. That’s why I like the esim. Do you lose you mobile number if you swap the sim? What if you need your assigned number for work, family, etc?
GigSky is great. I’m using it now in France while typing this. Yes, it’s a little expensive but a lot cheaper than Verizons international plan.
