What’s New

Version 7.3.2

We have a fresh, new look! Making it easier to purchase eSIM data plans and track usage. In addition, we’ve removed GigSky SIM support, however you can still activate a GigSky SIM and purchase plans using the GigSky web app. We hope you love the new look just as much as we loved building it.

Works well but coverage varies

I have been using Gigsky service for several years and generally I would recommend it over buying a local SIM with a few caveats.

GigSky is preferred if:
- you travel to different countries
- your data usage is moderate
- you check coverage before buying a plan
- you do not use iPhone Wi-Fi hot spot

Not advised if:
- you travel mostly to the same country
- you need over 1GB per week
- you do want want to change SIMs
- you need to use multiple devices

How to check coverage: arrive to the country of your destination and insert GigSky SIM into your phone. Wait a few minutes, you may need to restart the phone or at least enable and then disable airplane mode. Observe the carrier and data signals. If you are happy with signal and data then purchase a plan - typically you do not need Wi-Fi to buy data in the app however you *must have credit card on file* already. Use your card payment - Apple and Google payments work only on Wi-Fi.

GigSky introduced LTE SIMs last year. If you have an old SIM it is worth upgrading.

iPhone disabled Hot Spot feature is my biggest disappointment with this service. GigSky support claims it is controlled by Apple but really GigSky need to take charge to fix this problem. You cannot use USB sharing either.

My results by destination:
- Playa De Carmen, Mexico: no coverage
- Sao Miguel, Portugal: excellent, LTE
- Venice/Bologna, Italy: excellent, LTE

App is great; roaming was still patchy

Let me start by saying that this is a wonderful product. I have been using T-Mobile and found their global roaming 15Gb LTE for $50 to be a decent value. Sadly, I travel too frequently for T-Mobile’s taste so I needed to look for something else. I was super happy to find this and took it for a spin in Malaysia and Singapore. Setting it up as eSIM was a breeze (not even T-Mobile can do that!). However, in Malaysia the data didn’t really work and when it did, it wasn’t even 3G, let alone LTE/ 4G. Things were better in Singapore, but still had times when wasn’t connecting. I hope they can continue to improve - would really love to use them every month!

Done with GigSky—LTE coverage is poor

I’ve been using GigSky routinely since the service was possible on the iPhone XS, first on that device then the 11 and then the 12. I’ve used it dozens of times in dozens of countries in Europe, Asia, North America, and South America. But I’m giving up on GigSky because the LTE coverage is spotty and often my phone is on 3G while my work mobile, which is roaming on the local network, at full bars on LTE. I’m tired of paying LTE rates for 3G service.

Sending a complaint to GigSky results in a circular discussion where I have to provide screenshots of the map where I’m standing and a variety of other information. Of course by the time GigSky replies I’m already in a new spot where it also doesn’t work. I’m tired of having to do so much work to prove that the coverage is poor, which GigSky already knows, and in dealing with excuses instead of solutions. Bye, GigSky. I’m off to FlexiroamX and Truphone.
