eSim for travelling and data roaming

iOS app available

Stork esim

Yoodo (for travelling in Malaysia)

Can we make this a sticky? It will benefit everyone.

And probably we can also split it by Global eSIMs.

Good suggestion to categorise them. But the ones Iíve listed have packages for different countries.

Airalo seems good. Glad I didn’t opt for eSim from M1. Can utilise this instead when I’m overseas, no need to touch that sim tray at all.

Exactly. I thought M1ís data passport was good but itís still expensive compared to Airalo.

That funny looking word is the name of the package for Malaysia. Click on the picture of the plan youíre interested in. The telco will be indicated at the bottom. For Malaysia, I see that itís UMobile.

Can I ask a question? Never used esim before. Can you turn off the esim (not remove it) when not needed? I can do that with physical sim.

Koped my post from the other eSIM thread and I’m using Yoodo when I travel to Malaysia.

I’m currently using Yoodo as recommended by someone else here too. It’s like a virtual telco and piggybacking on CELCOM.

Yoodo by Celcom Mobile Sdn Bhd
https://apps.apple.com/sg/app/yoodo/id1324469029

Btw here is my invitation code, and you can get free RM20 too: https://app.yoodo.com.my/assets/inde...code=pjqii9147

So just use the current M1 SIM card or any other telco physical Sim and keep the eSim for overseas with airalo?
