What is an eSIM?

eSIM is a data SIM that is used by scanning the QR code received by email upon purchase without using a physical USIM chip.

It operates on a microchip installed on your mobile, so you don't have to visit the carrier store in person or purchase a real USIM card and get it delivered.

As data can be used freely in countries where you travel without excessive roaming charges, eSIM usage is increasing compared to real USIM.

What is the advantage of eSIM ?

The advantages of this eSIM are as follows.

  1. There is no fear of loss or damage.
  2. It does not cause environmental pollution.
  3. Because most support dual sims, eSIM can be enabled and used without removing physical sims.
  4. You can use data at a much cheaper price than roaming.

The time it takes for eSIM to be activated may vary depending on the mobile carrier's policy, so it may take several hours to activate even after completing the QR scan.

If it doesn't work even after waiting, or if it doesn't work after trying all of the methods below, please contact Maltalk support team.

1.Turn on data roaming and GPS and turn airplane mode off and on. 
Data roaming is a feature that allows your device to connect to cellular networks outside your country or region. Additionally, GPS determines your current location. So, if you are traveling and cannot connect to a network, turn on data roaming and GPS will enable eSIM and enable you to use it properly.

After scanning the eSIM QR Code, go to your phone settings and turn on data roaming and GPS. In that state, turn airplane mode on and off. ESIM will be set automatically after 1-2 minutes.

2. Please check if it's a eSIM that needs to be opened
In the case of deliberation that requires the opening of esim, you must enter the opening date or contact us to request an opening data. Please check whether the eSIM requires an opening date on the eSIM details page you purchased.

3.Reset Network Settings 
Resetting the network settings can be a solution to the network issues on your Phone. Resetting it will make the device forget every Wi-Fi network, Bluetooth connection, and VPN setting it has ever used.

If esim does not work, please reset the network.

  • iPhone: Settings → General → Transfer or Reset iPhone → Reset → Reset Network Setting – Enter the password (password set on your phone) then Reset Network Settings
  • Samsung: Press Settings→ General→ Reset→ Reset Network Settings.

4.Switch off your VPN

If VPN is turned on, go to Settings →General → VPN device management → Turn off VPN
