If it’s your first time purchasing an eSIM plan and you’re unsure about a few things, this article will bring you some clarity. 

First Step

The first thing you need to decide is how much data to buy. 

Below are some ranges according to how you use your device’s data. 

Using Google Maps for directions, listening to music, and using social media: 

850 MB – 1.5 GB (per week)

Making calls with Whatsapp or Facebook: 

2.5 GB – 4 GB (per week) 

Watching YouTube videos and making video calls: 

7 GB – 25 GB (per week)

Second Step

Next, you should definitely buy your eSIM plan in advance. 

All you’ll need to do is activate it once connected to WiFi at your new destination. 

Third Step

Make sure to set your eSIM as your default line. 

Also, don’t forget to switch off your Data Roaming. You don’t want to incur any additional costs.
