How does our Zambia eSIM work?

An eSIM is an embedded SIM card, and you probably already have an eSIM-compatible device. When you install an eSIM for a country or region, it lets your device connect to local networks in that area. This means your device will have data without needing Wi-Fi or paying roaming charges.

Use a Zambia eSIM for instant travel data

This landlocked South African country is famous for its diverse wildlife, pristine wilderness areas, and exciting safaris with up-close-and-personal opportunities to see your favorite animals.

While you’re in Zambia, you’ll probably want mobile data so you can check maps, book excursions, arrange transportation, and stay in touch with everyone back home.

A Zambia eSIM (downloadable SIM card) connects your device to a local network, giving you affordable prepaid mobile data.

How much travel data do I need with my Zambia eSIM?

How much data will you use in Zambia? Well, that depends on a few things.

How often do you spend on your phone when you’re at home? How long do you usually spend on your phone when you’re on vacation? And will you be close to your accommodations (and free Wi-Fi) most of the time, or out exploring?

You can use your free travel data calculator to help you estimate how much data you’ll need for your trip to Zambia.

Will I pay roaming charges with a prepaid eSIM for Zambia?

None! With a Zambia eSIM, you won’t pay any roaming charges because it connects you directly to a local network.

But please make sure you’ve turned off Data Roaming on your primary SIM (and confirmed you aren’t enrolled in a carrier travel plan) to prevent your home carrier from adding roaming charges to your next bill.

FAQs about using a Zambia eSIM

Check my device

Most newer phones, tablets, and computers are already eSIM-compatible, so use our eSIM device checker to make sure you have a device that can accept an eSIM.

Free Wi-Fi is great when it’s available, safe, and working well, but some destinations make it just about impossible to get a good connection. That’s why it’s nice to have data as a backup to stay connected.

We’re proud to provide aloSIM customers with fast eSIM data connections that allow them to talk, text, surf, and stream comfortably. You’ll likely experience a 4G (sometimes 5G) or LTE equivalent network in most locations, depending on what’s available in the area.

Installation guides

We have detailed eSIM installation instructions for all compatible devices, so whether you’re looking to add eSIM data to an iPhone or iPad, Google Pixel, Samsung Galaxy, or something else, we’ll be able to walk you through the eSIM set-up process easily.

How to avoid roaming charges

It can be confusing to know the best roaming settings for your phone while you travel internationally, so we’ve created an easy walk-through guide to show you exactly how your phone’s roaming settings should look.
