~ Things to do just before traveling ~

🔲Enable eSIM on your iPhone*1 and set it as your mobile data SIM just before traveling*2

*1 Check that the purchased eSIM is turned on in "Settings" → "Mobile Communications".
*2 Select the eSIM you purchased by going to "Settings" → "Mobile Communications" → "Mobile Data Communications" (you will be able to connect to the local signal immediately after arriving at your destination and enjoy smooth data communications).


③What to do at your destination (1st step)

🔲Confirm that communication has started locally

・The carrier in the upper left corner of your iPhone screen will change to KT (if you are using VOYAGEE SIM for Korea) .

- You will receive notification messages notifying you of the connection start and end times depending on the validity period of the eSIM you purchased.

*Please note that communication will be unavailable after the period ends.
* Please note that in the case of VOYAGEE SIM for Europe, if you use up all of your data, you will not be able to communicate even if you have time remaining.
*After the period ends, there will be no further work to be done, regardless of whether it is still in the period or not.

Note: It may take some time before communication begins. Communication will resume after rebooting the device several times.


④What to do after returning to Japan ( 1st step)

🔲On your iPhone , turn on the SIM card you used in Japan.

・In "Settings" → "Mobile Communications", select the original SIM as "Mobile Data Communications". (Just to be sure, make sure the "Default Voice Line" is also selected as the original SIM .)
