how to change your data plan without changing your sim card

Fast and affordable internet connection has become essential to our daily lives. We depend on staying connected, especially when we travel. But changing your data plan when you're abroad can get complicated. It often involves getting a new SIM card, keeping track of your old one, and changing your phone number. 

Enter the Airalo eSIM. Airalo offers eSIMs (digital SIMs) for more than 200 countries and regions worldwide, making it easy to stay connected when you travel. You can keep your SIM card safe inside your phone and use an eSIM to connect to a local network when you travel.

In this article, we'll discuss what an eSIM is, how to get a data plan without changing your SIM card, and how to stay connected when you travel.

What Is an eSIM?

First things first: What is an eSIM? An eSIM (also known as a digital SIM) is a memory chip embedded in your device. Like a SIM card, it identifies you as a mobile subscriber and connects you to a network. Unlike a traditional SIM card, it works 100% digitally and can be activated remotely. 

Using an eSIM has many advantages. It enables you to connect to the internet without handling a physical SIM card. Rather than insert a new SIM, you can download an eSIM package and instantly connect to a mobile network.

Most new smartphones support eSIM technology, and some (like the US model iPhone 14) are eSIM-only. You can store multiple eSIMs on your phone, making it easy to switch between plans and connect to a new network when you travel.
