I will be visiting the USA (from the UK).

Is there a short-term e-sim I can get from a US network, that works with the Gemini?

Thanks,

Highjohn

How about these people? https://www.airalo.com/united-states. Not used them yet but will shortly when I'm in Spain as a trial run.

Cool stuff ! The data prices are actually much better than those of our (Belgian) normal networks.

Keep us informed how it works.

Well, the esim concept from Airalo proved to be impossible to implement. Having spent a whole 2 dollars on a 1gb 7 day SIM for Spain, i have failed to get it to work. Two methods of installation are offered: the scanning of a QR code, or the input of an activation code manually. Neither work. I've informed them, but realise Gemini pdas and the ESim wallet are well down their list. Maybe things will improve when they release their apps.

Hmm, kind of strange, as they actually list the Gemini as one of the phones compatible with their e-sim... And the eSIM Wallet seems to support both methods of installation as well (although it will be kind of difficult to get the "scan QR-code"-method unless you have the camera add-on...).

Are you on Android 7 or 8?

Anybody else got it to work? I usually get the same conditions as I have at home when I am abroad, but would be good to know an E-SIM-provider that I can actually use, if I should go to a country where I DON'T get that, and I thought Airalo looked promising..

Have you had a look at this blog? Followed Jans instructiona and the esim looks like it loaded ok. Still to activate and test it.
