PORTUGAL ESIM BACKGROUND

An eSim is a virtual sim card (embedded sim) that you can use to connect to data services while you’re traveling. It’s not a physical sim card that you insert on your phone. Usually, you scan a code that gives your phone access to the data plan package of that eSim.

An eSim data plan is a great way to get a data or internet package outside of your home sim card, or phone carrier service from Europe. And because you are using an eSim, you don’t have to worry about changing your phone number for Whatsapp, imessage, Telegram, or any other messaging apps.

Once you purchase an eSim, you’ll immediately be emailed a QR code that you can scan, and if you should be connected to data immediately. There are a few eSims in Portugal available for tourists and prepaid eSim data plans.

MEO, Vodafone, and NOS are the main phone operators in Portugal. MEO, Vodafone, and NOS don’t offer eSim for tourists in Portugal only with a subscription plan.

Make sure you check Holafly eSim for less than $60 USD if you use our code GAMINTRAVELER you will have unlimited internet in Portugal for 30 days just for $2 USD per day.

Difference between an eSim vs getting a data plan

Ease of access to a data or internet package is the biggest difference of an eSim over a data plan from Regular mobile data carriers from your country. With an eSim, instead of buying the physical sim, you can buy a package online and activate it wherever you are.

You can purchase your Holafly eSim here (in this case with Holafly eSim Portugal but there are other providers too). Choose the country you’re going to, and how many days you want to have unlimited data service or any other data packages for data eSim in Portugal.

Remember that you’re buying internet data and not credits for sending text messages/SMS, or making phone calls. You can use regular messaging apps for these like Whatsapp, Telegram, Messenger or iMessage.

Once you have your eSim confirmation, you’ll get the code. You can save this code in your phone as an image, and scan it later, or scan it now, and you’ll immediately activate it.

Portugal eSim for Tourists What do I need to have to get a data package for Portugal and Europe

Before you can get an eSim Portugal data package, you need to first make sure that your phone supports the eSim functionality. Unfortunately this is not available for all phones. It became available in the last year or two, making only the newest phone versions to support this feature.

If you are using an iPhone or iPad running SIM card functionality, these are the models that support the eSim feature for iOS.

iPhone and iPad with Esim Functionality

For iPads, you have the following.

iPad Pro 11″ (model A2068, from 2020), iPad Pro 12.9″ (model A2069, from 2020), iPad Air (model A2123, from 2019), iPad (model A2198, from 2019), iPad Mini (model A2124, from 2019)

Your ipad needs to have the sim functionality to get the esim feature.

This is how you activate an esim with iOS devices.

Check if your phone is Unlocked

The idea of having an eSim is to have another carrier providing data service/internet service to your phone. Even if your phone supports the eSim functionality, the phone needs to be open or unlocked to use any data/sim company.

Locked phones are usually the phones you purchased with a data plan with a sim card or carrier service, where you have plans that you pay monthly until your contract expires, and allowed you to get your phone at a discount or for free.
