Roamless eSIM: Important things to note

Data roaming settings for Roamless eSIM

  • Roamless uses a global eSIM so it needs to have 'Data Roaming' ON so that you can use mobile data in every destination.

BICS and Proximus

  • Your Roamless eSIM will be issued by either Proximus or BICS (our partners); you can see this information inside the SIM card itself.

Using Roamless while at home

  • Since Roamless eSIM is global, you can also use it while at home. If you are manually selecting your eSIM for data, please don't forget to select your local/regular SIM again when you return home; or you will keep using your Roamless eSIM.

Turn off airplane mode before you start activation

  • The eSIM needs to connect to the network to complete activation. Airplane mode prevents this.

My data is not working.

Please follow the steps below:

  1. Check that your device and eSIM settings as as per the instructions outlined under eSIM Settings

  2. Check your APN settings to make sure they match those in the below screenshot.





  3. Turn on 'Airplane mode' on your device, wait for a few seconds, and turn it off. This will force your eSIM to re-register on the network and most likely solve the connectivity issue.


My data is stuck on 3G.

Please follow the steps below:

  1. Go to Device Settings -> Cellular/Mobile -> Roamless eSIM -> Cellular/Mobile Data Network

  2. Scroll down and click on "Reset Settings".This will reset your APN settings and should restore your 4G/LTE/5G data connectivity.

  3. If you're still having issues where your data is stuck on 3G, please open a support ticket from "Support -> Get Help" from inside your Roamless app and our team will assist you further.

What are my APN settings?

You can check you APN settings by going to:

Device Settings -> Cellular/Mobile -> Roamless eSIM -> Cellular/Mobile Data Network

Please note: Your eSIM is likely labeled "Persona", "Travel", "Secondary", "Business" or "Cellular Data" by iOS during initial setup. If you click into the eSIM, you will see at the top BICS or Proximus (our eSIM providers).

Does my device support eSIM?

iPhone Xs and later models all support eSIM.

To double check:

  • Please go to Device Settings -> Cellular/Mobile -> scroll down to SIMs.

  • If you do not see the 'add eSIM' button, this means that your device does not support eSIMs (or that your carrier may have locked this feature) unfortunately.

You can still use your Roamless app and your account balance to make phone calls to 200+ destinations with rates starting from $0.01/min by using our in-app calls feature. It works on any data connection including WiFi and your regular/local SIM; Roamless eSIM is not required.

I'm getting the error message 'This code is no longer valid / expired'.

This error message means your eSIM is already installed on a device.

  • Please go to Device Settings -> Cellular/Mobile -> SIMs and check if you can see your Roamless eSIM on your device.

  • Your eSIM is likely labeled "Persona", "Travel", "Secondary", "Business" or "Cellular Data" by iOS during initial setup. If you click into the eSIM, you will see at the top BICS or Proximus (our eSIM providers).

If you see the Roamless eSIM on your device, this means it has already been downloaded. You don't need to repeat the activation process. You can proceed with configuring your device and eSIM settings.

Please note:

If you're in a country where Roamless does not have coverage yet, no worries. Your eSIM will complete activation and start working when you arrive in a Roamless country. Just make sure to check your 'eSIM & Device Settings' to start using it for mobile data in your destination.

If you do not see the Roamless eSIM on your device, please open a  support ticket from inside your Roamless app from "Support -> Get Help" and our team will assist you further.
